The secret to quality security

The secret to quality security

Security guards are becoming the norm on the high street, bought in place to support retailers with social distancing and therefore taking on the ever-increasingly important task of reducing the spread of coronavirus. Not only that, but they continue to do what a security guard has always done – protect your assets and reduce the risk of crime at your business.

There are a number of things are standard practice here at CSS Ltd, detailed below.

Recruiting and not subcontracting

As is often the case, the first step in ensuring a quality security service starts with recruitment and bringing in the right people to represent your business. It’s for this reason that we never subcontract, preferring instead to go down the more expensive route of recruiting individuals. Only by doing this can we personally meet every person who wears the CSS Ltd uniform. Yes, it’s more costly, but for us, it’s non-negotiable.

Tailor-made contracts

Secondly, it’s how we discuss the individual needs of each of our clients, creating tailor-made security that suits their business. We offer security to a range of sectors:

  • Retail
  • Hospitality
  • Licensed gaming
  • Education
  • Industrial
  • Corporate
  • Construction

As you can imagine, each of these industries will have different specifications and different risks. Not to mention the range in business size and location.

Investing in remote management

For a national business like ourselves, it was hugely important to invest in a remote management system that enables us to act as a local company in all areas of the UK. Excellent remote management supports not just the security officers on the ground – ensuring their safety – but it also demonstrates a quality of service to our clients too.

Ongoing training programs

Finally, it all comes down to ongoing training and personal development. As demonstrated in recent months, the role of a security officer is ever-changing and it’s hugely important to remain completely up to date with government guidelines and legislation to ensure our security officers are operating safely and within the confines of the law. It also allows us to discuss career advancement with each and every member of our team, supporting them to grow as individuals and become more qualified as they progress through a career in security.

For more information on how we can work with you to provide a quality security service at your business during these unusual times, please don’t hesitate to get in touch a member of our team.

We never subcontract our staff, we invest in their training and we work hard to support our staff.
