Securitas UK has been officially recognised as a Top Employer by the Top Employers Institute, the only security and protective services company so accredited. The certification body describes Top Employers as organisations that have worked hard to create, implement and progress people strategies, through innovative and engaging programmes, which empower and develop their employees.
To be certified, Securitas had to achieve the minimum standard as set out by the Institute across ten topics: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, On-boarding, Learning and Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career and Succession Management, Compensation and Benefits and Culture.
Brian Riis Nielsen, Country President, Securitas UK said: “Securitas is leading the transformation of the security industry from traditional guarding to a much broader spectrum of protective services delivered by better trained and engaged teams. Although technology is an increasingly important part of our operation, our on-site, mobile and remote security officers remain the backbone of our business. Our people, and how we look after them, lay at the heart of this transformation.
“Our talented, professional officers excel at keeping our clients’ people, property and assets safe. In return we have made a commitment to provide the very best employee experience, offering a rewarding career pathway which will help shape the next generation of security professionals.”
Grainne Kelly, HR and Security Operations Centre Director said: “We are delighted to be officially recognised as a Top Employer. From our online, end-end recruitment and selection processes, to our in-house City & Guilds accredited Learning and Development Academy, and our focus on talent and career succession planning, we are proud of the collaborative and innovative working practices we are delivering for the benefit of all our employees.
“We will continue to invest in, and refine, our Securitas employee excellence model and offer our people the very best, industry leading, employee experience. Our Top Employer certification proves that we are well on our way to achieving this.”
And David Plink, CEO, Top Employer said: “We believe that the 2019 Certified organisations demonstrate exceptional employee conditions and encourage the development of these practices by putting their people first. These companies help enrich the world of work with their outstanding dedication to HR excellence and because of this, they are recognised as an employer of choice.”
