Security Savings

How can I make security savings?

Top tips on setting up a cost-effective security model using our Security Savings Calculator.

Security Savings

Many companies are planning their return to the office after more than a year of many staff working from home. In that time, the security world has changed substantially. Security officers, who have served on the front line during the pandemic,  have become accustomed to managing empty or lower occupancy buildings. Their shift patterns have changed with more mobile patrols than before. There has also been an increased use of technology to complement security officers on the ground. Some of these changes will likely continue as organisations adapt to new ways of using their corporate real estate.

Post-pandemic, organisations are looking at their property portfolio differently than before Covid. They want reduced running costs but also more flexible ways of using their real estate. Many are looking at hybrid working models with people continuing to work from home some days while being in the formal workplace for the rest of the week. As a result businesses are exploring a more flexible approach from their security relationships.

Security Savings Calculator

It’s with this in mind that Corps Security launched our security savings calculator. It helps businesses of all sizes to make pertinent decisions around their security service to enable them to plan for an uncertain post-pandemic world.

Facilities professionals enter their manned guarding hourly charge rate and the number of security hours they currently use to see how their security costs could be reduced by combining security monitoring solutions with their current support from their professional security officers. Savings does not equate to cutting back your security delivery – instead it’s about being smarter.

    An Integrated Approach To Your Security Service

    Because Corps Security delivers both manned guarding and remote monitoring security services, we’re ideally placed to counsel businesses on the optimal blend for each organisation – our competitors will always favour either security monitoring or manned guarding, rarely a blended approach as they don’t offer both elements in-house.  Our approach gives you the confidence that whatever we recommend will work for you financially and in terms of the security level.

    Using Corps Secure, our insightful customer portal, organisations can access data about both their manned guarding and monitoring service. It’s one dashboard to view both elements.

    The Security Savings Calculator Means Increased Pay For Your Security Officers

    As well as reducing costs for your business, an integrated approach using both technology and experienced security officers, allows these officers to be paid the Living Wage. This increases their pay where it is below the Living Wage rewarding them for their hard work and professionalism. All of which significantly boosts their morale improving staff retention.  Corps is a Living Wage Recognised Service Provider while Mike Bullock , our CEO, is a member of the Living Wage Foundation’s Recognised Service Provider Leadership Group.

    As an organisation which has been around for more than 160 years, we take our duty of care to our people seriously. The Corps of Commissionaires Management was established 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 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.

    Why not be part of these success stories and use the security savings calculator to right-size your security service?
