Reasons Why Small Businesses Should Hire Security Guards
It doesn’t matter what kind of shop you own or what kind of products you’re selling, you can’t afford any property loss. Every property loss (even if it’s just a minor loss) is affecting your business. You can prevent this from happening by hiring a security guard that will take complete care of your retail security.
You might be thinking you’re able to enhance the security of your store on your own but you can’t prevent theft at all times. Which is something that security guards are able to do! Security guards are able to help you to recognise thieves and are able to help you to prevent them from stealing from your store.
You might think: ‘I can’t afford to hire another member of staff, that’s way too expensive.’ But the money you will lose as a result of the theft that might be happening in your store will be worth hiring that extra member of staff!
We listed 3 of the most common reasons on why to hire a security guard down for you:
Reason 1: It protects your business against shoplifting and theft
The most common reason to hire a security guard (which already has been discussed at the beginning of this blog post) is to protect your business from financial losses due to theft and shoplifting. It’s no secret that both shoplifting and theft costs you a lot of money. Hiring a security guard for your business will help you to reduce these losses. Security guards will also contribute to a safer work environment; which will lead your employees to be more effective during working hours. It will noticeably increase your profits by giving you back the money that’s rightfully yours.
Reason 2: Handling theft professionally
Our security guards are trained to be able to identify thefts before the rest of your staff does. This will provide a safe work environment and protection to your employees and customers. A security guard does not only spot shoplifters, but they will also confront them about it; which is something you might not be comfortable with doing yourself.
Reason 3: It will prevent your business from stealing employees
Most of your customers will not realise straight away whether you have a security system in place or not – but your employees will know! But when they know that nobody is keeping an eye on them, your business becomes their easy target.
Every employer wants to be able to trust his/her employees, especially when we’re talking about small businesses. A business feels like a child to employers and they want every employee to take care of it just like they do.
In the ideal situation, employees don’t steal from their employers. But sadly, this is not always reality. When you’re hiring a security guard, every single employee will know that everything is being watched at all times which will hold them back from stealing.
