People Management;5/17/2007, Vol. 13 Issue 10, p12
The article reports on the upheaval caused by the split of the British Home Office into two departments. The majority, including human resource (HR) staff, will stay put at the Home Office's Marsham Street base. The bulk of the 50,000 people transferred work for the National Offender Management Service, meaning the Home Office workforce falls from 75,000 to 25,000. There will also be a new home secretary following John Reid's announcement that he is stepping down.
