Annotation: Data from five podular direct supervision jails were used to determine the relative effectiveness of the employee investment model and the control model with respect to personnel outcomes such as job enrichment, job satisfaction, and occupational stress.
Abstract: Findings indicated that continued adherence to the correctional control model would be unwise. In contrast, the data indicated that investment in employee development and the use of participatory management practices is beneficial to the jail organization, although the employee investment model is not a comprehensive remedy for personnel problems in correctional facilities. The employee investment model proposed is not a complete opposite of DiIulio's control model. Instead, the employee investment model encompasses come control/security focus while including a strong recognition of the value of staff resources and the unique contributions that staff can bring to correctional workplaces if they are allowed to do so.
