Whether you operate a huge commercial building, or a minute boutique selling high-end merchandise, one of your primary goals as a business owner should be to safeguard the security of your staff and clients. Akin to the feeling of seeing police cars late at night or having an alarm system for your home, having security guards protecting your commercial premises will put both you and your clients at ease.
1. Crime Prevention
Did you know that just by having a security guard walk around your commercial premises, is a great deterrent to crime? Possible perpetrators usually decide not to conduct criminal behaviour simply because of its obvious manned or CCTV security. The sheer presence of a security guard or surveillance camera gives off a strong message that a company is extremely protected and ready to be defended if and when necessary.
Obviously, when thieves notice a security guard on patrol, they’ll likely think again in engaging a malicious act. Taking preventive actions to protect your business is crucial to your company’s success. Skilled, experienced guards are qualified to keep their eyes peeled for doubtful activity. If a security breach occurs, they will serve as the first line of defence. Here at JF Security, our professional guards are trained to look for any activity that looks suspicious by assessing the situation at hand, and responding to security breaches.
2. Customer Assistance
Hiring an approachable and proficient guard lets you communicate that your business is safe and customer-oriented. Security guards can also be customer service representatives, and champion your customer service efforts. They may man a front desk or act as a sentry to control access to a zone. Depending on the type of business you own, the likelihood is that your hired security guard will interact with customers and clients on a daily basis. In shop settings, for instance, shoppers often ask security guards where certain products are located, thus they may be able to help direct them to the right location in a business. What’s more, they also give that sense of safety in the evenings or during overnight hours.
In addition to access control, they can hold the door open for high-profile clients and make them feel more secure when entering your building. A simple, friendly greeting from a real human-being when your guests arrive equates to an extensive amount of communication with customers and clients. This also promotes an enhanced company culture for your company. Employing personable and knowledgeable security professionals translates that your business is safe and customer-centric.
3. Surveillance & Monitoring
An active patrol of a business property is only part of the multifaceted job function of a security guard. It’s important to acknowledge that not all security guards spend their entire time on active patrol of a business premises. A security professional may be employed to monitor video surveillance, check credentials, check for contraband, or restrict access to an area.
Moreover, they may have specific targets, such as watching for shoplifters, keeping an eye on the grounds after hours, and opening or closing a business for the day. These monitoring tasks take a lot of security accountability off the shoulders of the business owner and employees, allowing them to focus on their main jobs.
Proper security backup allows you to hone your focus on growing your business. Some guards ensure public safety from behind the scenes, continuously viewing security film through cameras and monitors. Undoubtedly, this is particularly valuable in retail locations where shoplifting is a major concern. Monitoring the property still lets security guards address any problems instantaneously, while criminals are unaware and preparing for a quick escape.
A local business owner generally needs to be Jack of all trades: from customer support, operations manager to marketing, literally everything under the sun.
