4 Top Qualities Of A Successful Security Team

The office team at Carter Solutions and Services Limited recently enjoyed a team building day out in Norfolk at the Snowsports Club. Together they enjoyed skiing and snow tubing – one of the fastest growing winter sports! Getting the team together outside of the normal working week got us thinking about what makes such a great workforce, especially when it comes to the security sector.

Customer service and manned guarding

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we never subcontract our security guards and every security officer with CSS Ltd has a valid SIA license. This is so we can invest in our staff, know that we can trust them with our clients and it also ensures that we can understand individual strengths and work on improving any weaknesses within our team. We understand this is a more expensive route than subcontracting security staff, but it means we can continue to maintain the high levels of quality security that we are known for.

Although we operate on a national basis, it’s the local community that directly benefit from our security services.

March’s Tony Award winner

As we’re sure you’re aware, every month, we select a member of the CSS Ltd team to become the winner of our internal Tony Award, as recognition for their hard work. As a token of our appreciation, they receive Amazon vouchers to the value of £50, and they get to hold the title of the Tony Award Winner for that month! We take staff appreciation incredibly seriously. We understand that establishing a world-life balance in the security industry is difficult. There’s long shifts to contend with, short notice cover, potential long distance travel and not forgetting the everyday risks of the job. We aim to give every security officer and support staff the chance to win, and we feel this encourages and maintains the high levels of security that we’re so proud of. Every month it’s difficult to select just one winner, but today we’re thrilled to announce that the Tony Award winner is: Kevin Greenwood! Well done! Here is what Tony has to say about him

But what has it got to do with the security service we provide? Well, in a nutshell, the chorus of this song demonstrates a key value at CSS Ltd and it can be summarised like this:
