Well-trained security guards can make a huge difference in the safety of your employees and your company. If you’ve made the decision to hire security, but are still deciding whether or not to hire a Bay Area security guard company, consider these five reasons to outsource your security guard needs.
1. Better Training
Outsourced security guards go through rigorous training before becoming a guard. If you choose to hire a guard on your own, you can’t guarantee the training they went through prior to employment. If the guard never had formal training or you can’t verify it, you have to pay to put the guard through training.
Outsourcing security guards gives you greater flexibility to match guards to the needs of your company. Some security guards are better suited for hospitals, banks, malls, or office buildings, and a security guard company can find you a guard with a relevant background and experience. When your needs change, it’s up to the security guard company to adapt, relieving the pressure from you.
3. Less Risk
Professional security guards are trained to know what they can and can’t do in the eyes of the law. In other words, you wouldn’t have to worry about a security guard from a private company doing something that could lead to legal trouble for your business.
4. Lower Cost
An outsourced security guard will cost less for your company than hiring and training your own. The company you hire has already paid for the security guard to receive training and certification, and you also avoid costs related to insurance, equipment, and uniforms.
5. More Technology
Outsourced security guards are generally trained with and use better technology on the job than most in-house security guards. For some smaller companies looking for security guard services, it simply isn’t feasible to spend tens-of-thousands of dollars on the latest and greatest equipment.
