Security Guards at office buildings are a large part of safety and security measures of office buildings that require access control, general protection of property from theft and vandalism and emergency response. Research in questionnaires with employees in office buildings and the resulting statistics have shown that personal security and the security of their work is the biggest worry of employees. An effective security company that provides well trained professional security guards with impeccable communication and customer service skills will provide a great measure of safety to employees and therefore increase their productivity. Additionally, security officers will protect from liability and will minimize potential damages in the case of emergency.
Many buildings are vast and house multiple companies with a large number of employees. The anonymity of employees and the large number makes it a great challenge to control access and protect the safety of employees, the property as a whole and customer as well as other sensitive information. An effective and well trained security officer with the right training and a security company that will provide the right security plan will contribute to securing the building from unauthorized access. They will also help in documenting time and frequency of access by authorized personnel.
In many communities vagrants have become accustomed to entering office buildings for various reasons. They will use the rest rooms, try to sleep at vacant offices or simply solicit employees for money, food and other items. In many cases police will not respond in a timely manner or is not able to make arrests. That emboldens vagrants further, which will result in repeated unauthorized entry, continued panhandling and unwanted solicitation. Often it will also lead to theft and destruction of property. Most importantly it will result in employees feeling bothered and less safe in their work environment.
A large building will require daily alarm and emergency responses. It has proven ineffective and costly for most companies to call the police in such cases. That has made it necessary and effective to keep a security officer at the office building, who will be able to provide immediate and effective emergency response. The security officers are only a call away and company employees can call them for reasons as unwanted solicitors and intruders, suspicious activity and any type of imminent and perceived danger. A security officer onsite will be effective in providing emergency response and in promoting a necessary sense of security.
It is important to hire a security company that will be able to provide expertise, supervision and means to keep security officers accountable. In most cases hiring a security company will also prove as the more cost effective solution. The right security company will provide well trained, professional security guards that they keep accountable and motivated. The right security company will be responsive to the client's requests and provide excellent customer service. An experienced security company with a professional security consultant will add tremendous value to the safety and security of the property and in providing a healthy and safe work environment.
