Guidance to frontline managers who are PCS members


The need to ‘get the job done’ all too often means that the immediate pressure to get the job done means time to train and upskill or reskill staff is placed as a low priority.

As a manager it is an important part of your role to change the focus of activity away from solely concentrating on meeting that next target now and instead thinking about how work can be done better if you and your staff have the skills to do the job. This in the long run will make the work we all do more sustainable and as the skills levels of the workforce increase so too will production and the ability to meet that next target, to overcome challenges and be resilient in the face of change.

Trade unions believe that apprenticeships are a sound investment in the future skill base of organisations.
