Equal opportunities at CSS Ltd

The security industry is one awash with stereotypes. Last week we wrote about being a woman in the security industry, and this week we’d like to continue the theme with equal opportunities. Stereotyping our workforce will never have a place at CSS Ltd. It never has and it never will.

A security presence run to military precision

“If you aren’t 5 minutes early, you’re already late.”

Anyone who knows anyone who has been in the military might be familiar with the above phrase! And whilst on time should, in fact, mean, on time, there’s a lot to be said for being 5 minutes early.

A huge congratulations to Renatas, the first winner of our monthly ‘Tony Award’!

Tony Award

Staff appreciation has never been more important, and we want each and every one of our security officers to feel valued within the team – because they are! We also know just how important it is to set out exactly what our expectations are because this in itself is shown to improve staff performance, independence and accountability.

So what’s in it for the team? Well, each month, the winner will receive a trophy and a £50 Amazon voucher!
