A startup needs many investments and huge running capital to run. But many expenses can simply be cut down through smart measures. Hiring of security guards and patrol through a private security company is one such step, which can help the entrepreneur, save a lot. Here is how you save through this.
The process and expense of hiring is avoided
When you hire security guards through a security company, you dont have to put in the effort of hiring. Hence you dont need to put on ads, arrange walk-ins, screen through CVs, and finalize interviews. This means, your expense on newspaper ads, and classified craigslist ads etc is saved. Also, the expenses on arranging interviews, paying HRs for interviews etc is saved. You shed off a lot of responsibilities, lengthy process to get them hired, and the hassle off your shoulders. You just give the security company a call, and get the contracted guards, employees of the security service, at your work.
The process of training is avoided
If you would have had hired the security guards as your own staffs, you had to train them. The process of training fresher and experienced guards, making them weapon friendly etc., is a long process. And this is expensive too. You may avoid this whole hassle, by getting your patrolling guards from the security company.
The guards salary is not your responsibility
As the patrolling guards will be on the payroll of the security service provider, and will be their employee, hence you are in no way responsible for their salary. They are just contracted people, and not your employees, thus saving you thousands on their salaries. You also need not give them any company insurance or other perks etc for the same reasons.
Compensations for mishaps and injuries are avoided
If a security guard is injured for any security battle in case of an emergency, where your company is not responsible, then you need not compensate the guard. This will also be taken care of by the security company for whom the guard works for.
Finally- You are off any commitment
You also are not committed to the guards for employment or work. Its just the contract to the company, which will determine that for how long the security guards will come and defend you. Once contract ends or is forcefully terminated, the session is over. You are in no way restricted through any personal commitments to use them.
