§ Lord Burnham
asked Her Majesty's Government: What is the purpose of the workshops to be conducted on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions to establish a changed management programme. [HL3946]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Work and Pensions (Baroness Hollis of Heigham)
The creation of the Department for Work and Pensions is an essential part of the Government's programme of welfare reforms. Our managers and staff have the key role in its delivery, moving from the passive payment of benefits to providing more help196WA and encouragement in finding work. This is a large programme of change and the workshops are designed to support our managers in delivering this.
