Promoting career progression
Securitas UK is the only security and protective services company to be accredited by the Top Employer Institute. Sarah Hayes, Human Resources Director, Securitas UK, explained, “We are absolutely delighted to be officially recognised as a Top Employer for the third year running. We strive to have the best team in the UK security services industry so it’s important that we recruit, train and attract the very best people.” End-to-end recruitment and selection processes online make it easier for internal applicants to apply for the latest opportunities
“Our officers excel at keeping our clients’ people, property and assets safe and in return, we want to provide an exceptional employee experience that offers a rewarding career pathway for the next generation of security professionals. This year we have fully embedded our online, end-to-end recruitment and selection processes making it even easier for internal applicants to apply for the latest opportunities. And we’ve successfully launched our Securitas career development programme to promote career progression and talent management across the organisation.”
Sarah Hayes continued, “Everyone across the business has access to our online Learning Management System with a comprehensive catalogue of Learning and Development solutions, ranging from Induction, soft skills and Health & Wellbeing courses, right through to Leadership Development with the Institute of Leadership Management. These courses are delivered online and through virtual classroom settings –a flexible and necessary approach given the challenges of working safely during the coronavirus pandemic.”
“Our certification as a Top Employer is a testament to our commitment to put our people first and provide them with the very best employee experience. We will continue to work hard to be the employer of choice in the UK, attracting and retaining the very best talent in the industry.”
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says, “Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), Securitas UK has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace.”
“We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme.”
