Living our purpose and values is essential at Securitas – and the Purpose Awards help us honor colleagues who go the extra mile to demonstrate them.

At Securitas, we believe that every role, no matter how big or small, contributes to our greater purpose to help make the world a safer place. Our people are integral to our ability to deliver on that purpose, which is why it’s so important to recognize their hard work and contributions.

One way we do this is through the Securitas Purpose Awards, which are a celebration of our shared purpose and values. They shine a spotlight on colleagues who go the extra mile, not only honoring their hard work and dedication but also reinforcing the principles that unite us across our global organization of 341,000 employees spanning 44 markets.

Securitas Purpose Awards recognize exceptional colleagues

Established in 2019, the Securitas Purpose Awards celebrate colleagues doing exceptional work in six categories. Three are named after our core values of integrity, vigilance, and helpfulness. The fourth is a global “overall” Purpose Award, the highest recognition given to a colleague who embodies both our purpose and values. The fifth celebrates a team whose collective efforts redefine teamwork, and the final category recognizes those paving the way for a greener, more sustainable future.

Every year, thousands of colleagues are nominated by their peers and leaders for these prestigious awards. With nominations coming from all corners of the globe, we have representation from nearly all areas, functions, divisions, and markets across the organization. From security officers to technicians, branch managers to receptionists, and every role in between, the Securitas workforce is as diverse as it is talented.

Each nomination is inspiring and a testament to the remarkable work being done across the globe. This is undoubtedly a reflection of our culture and a reminder of our mantra: "You make the difference." Every nominee – every colleague – plays a vital role in upholding our values and purpose, making our company stronger and our communities safer.

Living our purpose and values

For the past 90 years, our focus has been on helping to make the world a safer place. Despite the evolving security landscape, this purpose has remained the North Star guiding our daily work.

Our values – integrity, vigilance, and helpfulness – form the foundation of our operations, shaping our corporate culture. Represented by the three red dots in our logo, these three values are who we are and how we deliver on our purpose.

How do they manifest in our actions? Integrity means upholding high ethical standards and being honest, which is crucial for earning the trust of our clients and society. Vigilance is about staying alert, constantly evaluating situations and taking necessary actions. And helpfulness? That’s in our DNA. Being service-minded is an integral part of our everyday work.

With the Securitas Purpose Awards, we take pride in honoring and celebrating colleagues who embody these values, demonstrating exceptional dedication and commitment to our purpose. They are the true champions of our company, and their contributions help ensure that we continue to uphold our values and deliver the highest standard of service to our clients.
