25 Aug Three things to look for when hiring a security company
Like any industry, there are lots of security companies out there to choose from. But who should you trust, and why? We’ve been asked this question many times over the years.
The importance of choosing a highly reputable and reliable security company cannot be overstated. Therefore we thought we would share with you our advice, in the form of three things you should look for.
Trust and accountability
These attributes cannot be faked. Determining whether a security company is trustworthy and accountable is crucial. The challenge, of course, is how to go about doing this.
First of all, you need to meet with them. A representative of the company must be able to explain, in detail, the kinds of work they do for their clients, and the kind of clients they have. This should not be a problem, as they should take pride – as we do – in building meaningful long-term relationships with their clients.
Do not be afraid to ask questions. Take note of how long the company has been in operation for, and what kind of licenses and qualifications their staff have. When the meeting is over, ask yourself: is this company able and willing to accommodate my needs?
Putting people first
A good security company provides the latest in state-of-the-art security solutions. At Mobile CCTV Solutions, for example, in addition to a range of surveillance and monitoring services, we also offer services such as drone security and trailer cams.
These things are very important. However, a great security company should understand that the best security solutions come down to human integrity. At Paragon we put people first; that philosophy underpins everything we do.
Dedicated and highly professional staff
What are the attributes to look for in a quality security guard? For starters: training and qualification. All security guards must be certified, well trained and have valid Australian security licenses.
They must also have strong communication skills, calmness and composure, and must be completely trustworthy and reliable. There are many responsibilities that come with being a security guard, so working with dedicated and highly professional ones is crucial.
