This month, the CPS is launching its first ever development programmefocusing on management skills in the organisation, and HR training is alsobeing updated to make the function more strategic. Both courses will include a strong equality and diversity focus, to ensurethe CPS continues to address diversity issues after it was labelledinstitutionally racist by the Commission for Racial Equality in 2001. The CPS is no longer under formal investigation, but is subject to regularprogress checks, with the next scheduled in May. HR director Angela O’Connor believes management skills have traditionallynot been seen as important. The new programme, called Transform, introduces core management competenciesand a 360-degree appraisal process.

Concise ‘how to’ booklets will replace the manual andtraining will include employment law, consultancy skills and equality. “The new world of HR, the strategic business partner is a bit scary forthe HR team as it was used to [more] administrative work,” O’Connor said.
