OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Director Scott Frakes announced a partnership with Gallup that will allow the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services to provide employee engagement opportunities.

Frakes says money provided by an anonymous donor, in addition to some funding provided through the agency will allow teammates to take advantage of the strengths program.

Already, approximately 400 people have taken the initial strength assessment. The next phase of the program is underway, which will involve having all NDCS team members participate in a brief assessment. Supervisors will receive leadership training and tools for employee engagement.

"This is a unique opportunity, one that would not have been possible had it not been for the generous financial gift," said Erinn Criner, human talent director.

Criner said the scope of the program will include assessment, training, engagement, and performance outcomes.
