Company Security Savings

Top tips on making company security savings.

Use our Security Savings Calculator to create a cost-effective security model.

Company Security Savings

In March 2020, there was a massive exodus out of offices as the nationwide lockdown was announced. Fifteen months later most businesses are busy planning the return to the workplace. Much has changed in that time, particularly in the security world. Our security officers have worked on the front line of the pandemic, often looking after empty or low occupancy buildings. They’ve seen their shift patterns change, found themselves doing more mobile patrols and often working in partnership with security technology – more so than ever before.  Many of these changes are likely to continue as businesses across the country adapt to new ways of using their property portfolios.

Post-Covid, we’re seeing organisations looking at their property portfolio in a different way than before March 2020. Businesses want to achieve substantial savings in their operational costs – particularly company security savings. But they also want to use their buildings differently to accommodate employees who want to embrace working from home while also coming into the office a few days a week. All of which means that businesses are looking for a more flexible approach from their security partnerships. And the security industry is responding accordingly.

Company Security Savings Calculator

It’s with this in mind that Corps Security has created our security guarding savings calculator. It’s designed to support organisations of all sizes to make appropriate decisions about their security service to allow them to plan in an uncertain business environment.

Whether it’s a head of facilities, an office manager or a security lead in charge of the security delivery, they simply  enter the manned guarding hourly charge rate and the number of security hours currently used to see how security costs could be significantly reduced by integrating security monitoring technology with the work of front-line professional security officers. You pay less but your security works harder.

    A Blended Approach To Your Security Delivery

    Because Corps Security provides both professional security officers and remote monitoring security services through our Alarm Receiving Centre in Scotland, we’re optimally placed to guide businesses on the best blend for each unique organisation – other security firms will always favour either security technology or front-line guarding, never a blended approach as those companies don’t provide both elements.  The Corps approach gives you the assurance that whatever we recommend will work in terms of the financial investment and the security level.

    Our new customer portal Corps Secure allows our customers to access data about both their manned guarding and security technology activities. It’s one dashboard to view both elements of your security provision.

    The Company Security Savings Calculator Means Increased Officer Pay

    As well as lowering costs for your business, an integrated approach using both technology and experienced security officers, allows these officers to be paid the Living Wage. This boosts not just their pay where it is below the Living Wage rewarding them for their hard work and professionalism, but also increases their morale which improves staff retention. This means that you will have the same loyal security officers working for you year after year, a significant benefit to any business.  Corps Security is a Living Wage Recognised Service Provider while our Chief Executive Officer Mike Bullock is part of the Living Wage Foundation’s Recognised Service Provider Leadership Group.

    As an organisation which has been around for more than a century, we are serious about our duty of care to our people. The Corps of Commissionaires Management was founded in the 1860s to provide employment for former soldiers on their return from the Crimean War. Our people are at the centre of everything we do and every decision we make. Our values of loyalty, integrity and service which were conceived when we were set up are as relevant now as they were then. They are the cornerstones of our ethos as the UK’s most respected and long-established security services company.

    As you might expect, we play a key role in the communities we work in and support military charities wherever we can. We are currently working with Combat Stress, the UK’s charity for veterans’ mental health, and The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA), the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity.

    An Adaptable Approach To Security

    We know companies are focusing on their outgoings, particularly their real estate costs. At the same time they’re looking for more adaptable ways of using their properties as their people explore hybrid models of work, combining working from home with working in the office. As a result they are looking for a more adaptable and flexible approach to their security provision.

    Feedback About Our Company Security Savings Calculator

    Although it’s quite new, our security savings calculator is already receiving fantastic feedback from our customers:

    “Corps led us through a detailed review of our client’s needs and the best options for meeting these in a changed landscape. We were able to discuss four possible routes to realising service efficiencies and cost savings. Reconfiguring hours and shifts were identified as the best option as there was no additional risk posed to the organisation or the safety and wellbeing of its people. The cost savings were a welcome benefit.“ CBRE Procurement Director,

    “An evaluation was carried out of the building layout and key areas of risk and vulnerability, with the Corps team assessing the resourcing needs as opposed to required duties. It was highlighted that by switching a night shift to a day shift and providing cover in areas only when needed that real efficiencies could be introduced. 184 hours of security were removed from the roster, achieving an annual saving of around £140,000.”

    “The service Corps provides in assessing security requirements and making savings is invaluable. Our security bill has been cut considerably.  Corps very quickly assessed our needs and made recommendations. The savings were instant.”

    “Our security bill has been reduced substantially. This cost saving has made a huge difference to operations within our building. With Corps’ step-by-step process and friendly service, we felt confident we were in safe hands and all of our security needs were taken care of.”
