A company of a certain size has the option of using in-house security officers or hiring from a reputable company individual guards or security guard teams to perform these people and protection duties – the outsourcing of security.
Business decision-makers and the stewards of budgets in companies may favor an in-house approach as it may seem at first glance to be more cost effective and manageable. However, there are a number of points in favor of outsourcing security personnel that company executives and management should be considering.
One of the first considerations is how does in-house security affect your ability to focus on your business. Executives or company owners/managers need to be completely involved in sustaining and growing their business. Security of property and people is a major management responsibility to have it done at a high level of excellence. Hiring takes time and mistakes can be made, and managing a security squad is very time consuming and is an area of expertise unto itself. Even a large company should be looking at the pros and cons of having an in-house force. Is it really cost and talent effective?
Secondly, there is the cost picture of an in-house team, from uniforms to equipment to insurance, salary and many other overhead costs. These all add up to start with, and over time can be substantial expenditures for a company of any size. The management of a security squad is also expensive as it takes experience and expertise.
Quality of personnel is another consideration. In hiring outside security officers, managed by experts with cost effectiveness in mind and quality of personnel as a critical must, companies are better served. A security guard company, such as WWPro, rests its reputation and performance on its people. Ours are among the best, with military and/or police training and backgrounds.
