In order to attract quality personnel to your business, it’s essential that you provide employees with a work environment they can feel safe in. After all, who wants to go to work each day and worry about strangers entering their workspace or about other undesirable issues arising?
One way to ensure your employees feel safe and sound when coming into work each day is to hire a security guard or guards to safeguard your premises. Let’s look at 3 reasons why hiring a professional security guard is a prudent investment for businesses to make.
1) It provides peace of mind to both business owners and employees. Having a professional and experienced security guard around will provide a presence in and around your workplace, and allow you and your workers to rest easy and focus on their work knowing that a trained guard is looking out for their well-being.
2) A professional security guard serves as a strong deterrent. For example, let’s say you own a retail store, and have a guard patrolling the premises. With him or her in the store, chances are a potential shoplifter is going to think twice about hiking an item for your store. Without their presence there, the shoplifter may feel more confident in their ability to get away with the crime, which will either mean your store loses an asset, or if an employee catches him or her in the act, the employee is now put in an awkward and potentially scary position of confronting the shoplifter. Ultimately, who do you want confronting this person: a trained and experienced guard, or an employee that has little or no experience in this difficult situation?
3) Security guards can serve as wonderful assets after hours. Are you worried about your premises at night when most other employees have gone home? Or are you worried about trespassers late at night or in the early, early morning? If yes, having a security guard patrolling the premises and monitoring the situation will prevent issues from arising.
As well, they can come in handy in terms of making sure all is right with the building; that the proper doors are locked, the right lights have been shut off or left on etc. etc.
