Outsourcing Security Makes Sense
By Hojjat Tom Tamar, City Wide Group of Companies
According to Statista, the market for outsourced security services was valued at $25.5 million in 2017.There are several benefits to outsourcing the security needs of your company. Whether you are looking to hire short-term or long-term security personnel, outsourcing will cut costs, minimize risk, alleviate administration burdens, and increase flexibility. Here are 4 reasons you should feel secure and be assured that outsourcing your security is the best option for your company, especially in cities like San Diego.
Today’s economy demands that you do more with less money, and the more expensive the city you live in, the more this is a reality. Rather than outsourcing, if you choose to implement a proprietary security team, you will likely incur higher costs. These added costs could include: insurance and benefits, purchasing uniforms and equipment, and administration fees. Outsourcing works well when your company requires expert assistance on a budget. For example, say your company is based in the middle of Time Square, the security needed will be exponentially higher than say a company based in Encinitas, California. If you want the highest quality security at the lowest price, outsourcing your security is the way to go. Security companies will provide you with world-class security guards while handling all of the training, background checks, and other up-front costs. Companies also recognize the work of the security guards they are employing, and do not let that be forgotten.
Alleviate Administration Burdens
Most security guard providers will take on the administrative duties that you would otherwise be providing. Administrative burdens could include anything from recruiting and interviewing to scheduling and training. The security provider will take care of the administrative duties and back-office tasks, saving you time and money. That time and money can be put towards things like uniforms, benefits, and overall safety.
Outsourcing your security guards will also minimize your responsibility when it comes to the risk of hiring a new security officer with potential instability. That instability can lead to consequences and uncertainty, which is not something that is wanted when it comes to the security guard position. As with any position you employ, there will be risks involved. However, when it comes to your security guards needs, you will want as little uncertainty as possible. There are five qualities of a good security guard: alertness, honesty, physical fitness, good communication skills, and the ability to serve the client’s needs. Outsourcing your security needs will reduce the risk involved in hiring new security agents, and will ensure those five qualities are met with ease.
When your business needs a change in service, a security guard provider will be able to easily adapt with your company’s needs. They will make the position change smooth and seamless. In addition, you will also have a wider range of options when outsourcing your security. Being tied down to one option for security and safety is tiring and not worth the headache. Rather than being tied to contracts or specified work schedules, outsourcing your security needs will allow you to hire based upon your business’ changing requirements. Plus, you will be able to hire based on who is best qualified, and not just on a need basis. This ensures the work your company is receiving is the best possible.
When you outsource your security needs, you will have more flexibility while alleviating the administration burdens involved. This makes it a stress free outcome for all. Outsourcing will allow you to select the most qualified security agents for your business while still managing your budgetary needs. With the money you will save by outsourcing your security needs, you will be able to investment more in what is most important for helping your business succeed.
