Security Officer Appreciation Week this year is taking place on 13-19th September. It is an international week of recognition and provides a great opportunity to acknowledge and thank the important security staff that keep us, the workplaces and buildings we occupy safe and secure.
For the second year running, Corps Security is excited to host ‘Thank Your Security Officer Day’, this year on Thursday 17th September, to give thanks to our dedicated security colleagues where it is truly due. Security can often be an invisible and thankless task and Corps Security wants to bring security officers out from the shadows and honour those who work around the clock to ensure the safety of everyone within the premises they work.
The past six months have been particularly challenging, and our security officers have been on the front-line of the Coronavirus pandemic. The Government’s decision to classify SIA licence-holding security professionals as critical workers has meant that in many cases they were the last people standing in many buildings – closing down facilities, supporting skeleton staff, getting premises ready for reopening and generally supporting people as they navigate the new workplace normal.
This year, members of the senior management team will be visiting some of our sites to recognise the hard work of our teams and show our appreciation. We are also inviting all of our clients to participate and would like you all to join us in showing appreciation to your security staff this ‘Thank Your Security Officer Day’. Please do share your messages via #thankyoursecurityofficer on social media.
