Post pandemic security shortages

Post-Pandemic Security Shortages – Why Not Outsource?

November 17, 2021

Since lockdown lifted some time ago, it is likely you have had to readdress your business’ security requirements. Whether you have gone back to operating in exactly the same way as pre-pandemic, or your working practices have changed entirely, we all know how important security is for protecting your business and staff, but what do you do if you can’t recruit?

Finding SIA accredited staff hard to come by?

Much like the rest of the world, the combination of COVID-19 and Brexit has changed the security industry and the role in which security staff play. Security has always been vital to protect premises but with the rise of flexible working bringing with it more vacant properties, changes to working times and the possibility of staff lone working, the need has never been greater. Despite the demand, SIA accredited security staff are unfortunately proving hard to come by and this unlikely to change for some time.

As such, businesses nationwide are turning to trusted providers to support with their security requirements to ensure they are compliant with their health and safety obligations.

Cost effective security solutions

Not only does outsourcing to a specialist security company generally prove to be the most cost effective and flexible solution over employing an internal service provision of the same level, it also takes the headache away from the recruitment process.

Security professionals will protect your premises and staff, giving you peace of mind that they are taken care of so you can concentrate on your core business operations, and sleep soundly at night!

Security provision is essential to meeting your health and safety obligations and we understand how difficult this can be when there is a shortage of security staff. So, if you’re struggling to recruit, why not consider outsourcing?

Here at Foremost our team of security guards are on hand to help with all of your premises’ security requirements, whether it be Keyholding, Lock and Unlocks, Mobile Patrols, Guarding or Vacant Property Inspections.
