Company policies and directives on behavior can often be gotten around, sidestepped or simply ignored. And this relates to the company brand and reputation in the customer market place. It has been shown that security guards are a positive force toward company policy cooperation.
Here are a number of ways security guards contribute to company behavior.
1.) Uniforms are actually an informing and forming contribution. Official uniforms are perceived differently subconsciously. They carry more weight, and a certain amount of authority that can politely and sensitively correct certain situations.
2.) Security officers are impartial to the policies, as they are outsiders to the company staff that created the policies yet are not exempt to the policies. Indeed they are supposed to be exemplars of the policies and directives. With this outside observer status security personnel are less likely to “look the other way” as could supervisors or report-tos when company personnel bend the policies.
3.) Security professional management is very experienced across a large variety of company ecologies and can be very helpful in consulting on policy challenges companies may be experiencing.
