Manned Guarding

March 27, 2019
Having the necessary security in place at your store, site or building not only offers the protection and added security of the assets inside, but also conveys a message to passersby that their safety will be in tact whilst being in the building, which would be ideal for hotels with possible residents passing by. Before you go and negotiate terms with the first manned guarding company you come across, here is some sound advice:



It is best to recruit a security guard from a manned guarding company as you can guarantee that they have been trained and that if you are not pleased with the guards' level of services then the guard can be exchanged for another.

The manned guarding company will have an insurance policy in place so if the guard was to be responsible for any misdoings then there would be insurances in place to cover any losses.

Ask for a specialised guard that has experience in your sector. A lot of guards are inexperienced in the fact they have had no real life combat experience, so if you're a high end store where robbery is likely make sure you employ a guard that is willing to take a hit.

Meet the guard assigned to you personally, and treat him as a direct employee but seeking referrals and recommendations. You want your workforce to work in harmony so knowing that the guard is thoroughly professional yet welcoming at the same time is important. If the guard is at the entrance of a store or hotel then they should be friendly and have a bit of charm.

Ensure you get the same guard to guard your premises as it would be highly inconsistent if you had varying guards each day, as regular customers may grow accustomed to specific faces.

Cost is a very important aspect, so assess whether the contract is hourly, daily, weekly or on a longer contract. Make sure the decision to invest in cost effective in the first place.
