Another important part of the recruitment process is making sure we are putting the right people in the right location. A security officer who would work great in a distribution facility may not be a good fit for a hospital. Unlike other companies that will place a body wherever there is a space, we take the time to make the proper placement.
Placement is critical. People have a natural desire to succeed and do a good job. If they are placed in the right environment with the right tools, they will succeed. But if they are placed in a mis-patched workplace and or not given the proper tools, then success will be difficult to achieve.
Employee Retention Rates Measures Client Success
Covey Security’s hiring process has yielded significant returns in our retention rates. This shows that we are finding quality personnel and keeping them. The ability to retain quality officers allows for greater stability onsite and allows officers to become very familiar with the property that they are serving.
In addition to finding the right people and placing them in the best environment where they are able to succeed we also work hard to treat our employees with dignity. This is the part of our philosophy that lifts up the entire model. Happy officers make for happy customers. Each and every one of our officers will be shown the respect and dignity that they deserve. We know that they sacrifice a great deal in the job that they perform. Security work is not glamorous work and we need to support these people that do a vital service to the properties that they serve and to the community as a whole.
