Securitas Purpose Awards
Our purpose unites 358,000 people across 45 different markets into a strong global team. The Securitas Purpose Awards, established in 2020, recognize and reward individuals who demonstrate their commitment to our purpose and live and breathe it, too.
Everyday Securitas specialists put on their uniforms - with pride - and live our purpose while doing their jobs. From Sweden to Singapore, through on-site services or tech security, your safety is why Securitas exists. It's a promise to clients, partners and others which guides our decisions, from small everyday choices to significant strategic investments.
Pride and comittment
Our people show up with pride and are committed to seeing a different world every day. They go to work with open eyes and open hearts, and their passion helps them see things others miss. Their dedicated work gives us peace of mind and uncovers the potential we all have when we feel safe.
The Securitas Purpose Awards are distributed once a year and selected from thousands of nominations submitted by colleagues from across the world. An internal jury presides over the selections and announces the winner during the second quarter of each year.
