Security guard services are valuable for protecting your business from both internal and external threats to mitigate financial loss and improve safety. Unsure whether your business requires a security guard? Here are five signs your business could benefit from one.
Often the presence of a security guard is enough of a deterrent to prevent criminal activity, but in the event of an emergency, security breach, or anti-social activity they will act quickly and efficiently to protect your business, employees and customers.
Here are five key signs your business could benefit from a security guard.
1.High crime rates
Businesses located in areas with a high crime rate are more at risk of break-ins, theft or other criminal activity. Hiring a security guard will improve the safety of your assets and employees, as well as giving you peace of mind.
2. Problems with theft
If your business is already losing money due to theft then it’s time to act to mitigate your losses and protect your business and employees. Whether the theft is occurring internally or externally, often the presence of a security guard is enough to deter criminals.
3. The high number of employees
The more employees there are in your business and the larger your premises are, the greater the risk of criminal or anti-social behaviour becomes. A security guard can protect your premises, employees, assets, and car park, at any time of the night or day.
4. You have a high traffic Car park
Whether your car park is for customers, employees, or both, it can be a hot spot for disputes, criminal activity and vandalism. Security guards are particularly valuable if people are going to be using the car park late at night when they may feel more vulnerable.
5. You have Sensitive or confidential information on site
If your company owns a large amount of sensitive or confidential information then it is in your best interest to employ a security guard. Theft of sensitive information may result in large fines and can ruin a business’ reputation, so it’s advised that you take precautions with protecting your data.
