Public Sector Organisations

Public sector organisations across Wales have never faced more challenging times. Significant budgetary cuts, and the pressure for employees to take on more roles and responsibilities than ever before, has led to a shift in priorities.

The tendency to view employee development as a cost centre to be minimised, rather than an investment to be managed, is underpinned by a focus on what is being spent, rather than the relevance and effectiveness of development being undertaken.

The pressure to reduce investment in professional development comes at a time when the operating environment demands that employees update and expand their skills and capabilities.

If done well, an investment in professional development can not only affect individual employee performance and productivity on the job, but can also be a significant catalyst for driving culture change and organisational transformation.

USW Commercial Services is an approved training provider on the NPS framework, meaning that we’re a preferred training provider in a number of specialised areas for public sector organisations across Wales.
