Securitas' employees are its most important asset. We aim to offer our employees good terms and ample development and career opportunities.
Satisfied employees stay longer
Investing in our employees by offering better terms and helping them develop their unique skills makes sense from a business perspective. Satisfied employees tend to stay with a company longer and become better qualified. With more qualified employees, we can offer more specialized and advanced services, which add value for our customers and generate higher margins for us.
As part of our development efforts, we have conducted employee surveys in our Security Services Europe division since 2008. After the survey, action plans are created for each country in order to implement improvements based on the results of these surveys. In 2016, the Security Services North America division conducted its first employee survey (managers and office personnel only).
Equal opportunities for all
Securitas does not use forced, involuntary or underage labor and respects all employees' right to freedom of association. As an employer, we advocate equal opportunities for all and do not tolerate bullying or harassment.
Clear policy in the event of a crisis
Securitas has established a crisis management policy and guidelines to ensure that threatening and potentially dangerous situations are avoided whenever possible. We train and prepare our employees and provide them with the best possible guidance when it comes to handling difficult situations, should they arise.
Raising the standard in the security industry
Securitas works proactively to improve the status of security officers and the conditions in the security industry. To raise industry standards, Securitas strives to guarantee mandatory basic training for all security officers. We have established our own training centers in all countries in which we operate.
Ongoing union dialog
We engage in a dialog in order to improve our work at the global, national and local level. Securitas has a global agreement with UNI Global Union and the Swedish Transport Workers' Union.
