How to Invest in Workplace Security
With rising vaccination rates in Ontario comes the return to in-person working arrangements for many employees across the province. Now more than ever is an optimal time to review the security in place at your workplace. While it may seem like a daunting task, enhancing your workplace security plan can be done in various ways, depending on the needs of your business.
Find What Works for You
Choosing the service that fits best with your business is essential to a successful security plan. There are countless security options out there. The solution best for you will depend on the size and nature of your business. For example, a large office building with high-level executives may require strong security with a concierge and security team. A smaller, remote office building may only require alarm response services. Your budget will also have an impact on the levels of security you choose to implement.
At Security Guard Group, we offer flexible solutions and work with each unique budget. We also provide significant discounts for non-profits, recognizing they have limited funds to work with as they provide essential community support.
Encourage Staff Involvement
Promoting a safe and secure working environment is a great way to involve staff and develop a strong security culture. For instance, teach essential security tips such as not sitting close to a window in closed-door meetings with strangers, attending to a visitor at all times, and locking the door at the end of the workday. Another way to involve employees is to develop policies outlining safety measures they must take or provide them with detailed safety training.
Upgrade Security Practices
One way to immediately upgrade your safety measures is to install security cameras around your building and surrounding premises. Not only does this deter unwanted visitors, but it also provides evidence in the case that an issue does arise. When paired with other security measures such as a concierge service, cameras are a great addition to the security of any business.
