The national spotlight report by His Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services was published in March 2023. This has provided an opportunity to reflect and take action to address how we embed values, culture, fairness and diversity in our Service.
The report focused the following themes:
- values and culture, including bullying, harassment and discrimination
- training and skills
- fairness and diversity
Altogether 35 recommendations were made and subsequently we have undertaken a self-assessment and set out our plans on how we are going to meet the recommendations. We will be reporting on progress to the HMICFRS throughout 2023/24.
“Our organisational culture is incredibly important to everyone who works here and we have worked hard to make sure everyone feels welcome and included and that the people we protect in our communities feel the same. We’ve made great strides in recent years, embedding our new values and positive leadership behaviours, which were developed with our staff. We are very proud of our progress, MFRS is a great place to work but we know that we can get even better” Chief Fire Officer, Phil Garrigan
