T his blog today will focus on, pricing for security guards hire. And how finding a cheap security company, or cheap security hire rate has certain negative consequences for your business, events or brand that you might not have thought of.
Let’s look at the doctor’s example. When most people get sick, they often want to find the best medical doctor or the best hospital to visit. The cost and price of the doctor or hospital would not be an issue to many, as long as they are the best!
Why do you think most people, always prefer the best, when it comes to our health? Because the best always have a reputation as “of top quality”. The best often had acquired experience and knowledge in their field, that only a few possess.
Sometimes people patronise the best because a bad doctor or hospital could actually be the worst case scenario than the sickness or ailment they are battling.
I like to add why people patronise the best is, for ‘peace of mind’. Humans are often emotional, the moment the word ‘best’ is added to service, product or practice, especially with testimonials to back it. A ‘placebo effect’ kicks in, people generally have peace of mind; their business, health, etc are in the hands of the best!
Expecting ‘the best’ applies in the security industry as well! When you need to hire Security Officers, Loss Prevention Officers, Events Security Guards, Corporate Security Guards or any other kind of security service. Take note that the security company you choose and the security officers they employ will be taking responsibility for the security of your business and site. They will be the face of your business; most especially when you are away during the night or on holidays, they will be in charge of looking after your business and site.
When a security company says to you “we can provide you security guards at a very cheap rate.” My advice is, to be very careful!
Why be careful? A security company is unlikely to attract and retain the best security g officers to look after your business when their prices come cheap. Many security companies that offer very cheap security hire rates; are likely to be doing the following. Underpaying their security guards, sometimes such companies will deploy unlicensed individuals to the client site or business posing as security officers, and that could be dangerous the clients, patrons and brand.
You have to understand, security guards are mainly licensed by state police or the Ministry of Justice in Australia, so that means every security officer assigned to your business, should have their records with the government and a plastic security license card. If they are not licensed and can’t show you a copy of a valid license, report the incident to the local Police and the security provider will be sanctioned.
Such a security company that offers you cheap service, in many cases they underpay the security guards they supply to businesses. And will possibly be supplying inexperienced security guards to take responsibility for your site or event security, that could leave you exposed to a lot of risks!
I believe we have focused more on cheap security companies; now let’s switch our attention on experienced, reliable and professional security companies. Security companies that provide some of the best security guards that will look after your business or events.
