With the demand of security personnel forecast to increase by 7 percent annually and no signs of slowing in the future – more security companies are slowly realizing the need to change their customer requirements, hiring demographics, and technology landscapes.
The days of paper-based note-taking and hiring three to four guards to cover one role are over. Today, every security company should be more efficient and responsive, including being apt with resource management. Not only are they expected to dispatch the right guards at the right time to the right sites, but clients are also asking to be given real-time data to justify their annual security spends to help them with future planning.
To keep up with these changes, more security companies are embracing security guard training more than ever before. Trained security guards have been shown to have higher rates of productivity and effectiveness in a number of ways. For instance, training enable guards to be more attentive to details and alert in their jobs. Increased alertness translates to better recognition and reporting of incidents, which also increase communication efficiency. Proper security training also improves the intelligence of the guards, giving them an opportunity to handle situations professionally while under duress.
Besides, security guards are expected to have dynamic and social skills. Proper training ensures that security guards understand the value of the social skills designed to help them deescalate circumstances which may be more tense and unpleasant.
Northern Force Security is focused in providing its employees and applicants with customized training services in collaboration with former security and anti-terror preparedness experts. They believe that it is only through extensive training that security guards can serve and protect their clients effectively.
“Expectations are changing and security guard companies need to step up,” says Northern Force Security’s spokesperson, “Based on our several years of experience in helping organizations maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of their security personnel, we have found that the biggest mistake that companies make when it comes to managing their security workforce is ignoring the value of training. Training is the responsibility of the employers or third-part security companies and should be done to improve the overall performance of the security guards. Training security guards on proper ways to make difficult decisions during stressful situations, for instance, not only increase the efficiency and performance of security guards, but also optimizes their safety.”
