The market supplement was extended to other prisons that had a recruitment and retention challenge to ensure that staff do not move locations to access higher rates of pay. As a result of the introduction of the market supplement, we have changed our people policies to incentivise staff to apply for promotions and continue their careers in HMPPS.
