3 Effective Ways Security Guards in New York Can Benefit Your Business

The Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of the word security is “the state of feeling safe, stable, and free from fear or anxiety.”1 Wouldn’t it be great if you could feel that way all the time about everything in life? Unfortunately, life doesn’t work that way. But National Security Service (NSS) can alleviate some of the burden of that anxiety by providing you with expertise from some of the best security guards in New York.  NSS will do the following for your business:

  1. Keep Your People Safe

Protecting people from injury is your top priority—your employees, customers, visitors – anyone that enters your business. Security guards can check identification and CCTV monitors, patrol the perimeter of your property and report suspicious activity. Perhaps you’re planning a major special event with lots of invited guests and need security guards to assist with crowd control. Or you’re taking youth on an overnight trip and want security guards with you to keep the group together and to see that students are safe in the hotel. Whatever the circumstances, NSS security guards are trained to protect people first.

  1. Save You Money

The cost of hiring security guards in New York far outweighs the cost of replacing what you’ll lose without proper security at:

  • Your business premises

Security guards help protect your property from theft, fire and vandalism. According to research conducted in April 2017 by Research Brain Statistic Institute, every year a whopping $50 billion is stolen from U.S. businesses by employees.2 And shoplifting accounts for 35.6% of inventory shrinkage in retail.3  Enlisting the services of security guards in New York can be included in your retail business’s loss prevention plan to help reduce both customer and employee theft and shoplifting.

  • Offsite at your construction project

Retail stores and existing businesses are not the only places at risk. If your business is in the process of being built, then your construction site is a goldmine for thieves if you leave the site unattended, especially at night. Expensive heavy equipment and construction materials could be stolen if you haven’t included security measures in your overall construction plans. But security guards on duty can help protect your property and report suspicious behaviour before it becomes an expensive problem. The cost of replacing machinery, materials and lost hours of production can be crippling to your business.

  1. Protect Your Business Reputation

Warren Buffett, American business magnate and investment guru once said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that you’ll do things differently.”4 By not hiring security guards to help protect your property and employees, you could be at risk of ruining your business reputation. For example, if you’ve left your business or construction site unattended and a fire breaks out, adjacent buildings and property could be damaged causing other businesses to lose money from lost time and production. Restoring a building isn’t easy, but repairing your damaged business reputation could be impossible.

Saving money, protecting your reputation and keeping people safe are priceless to you and your business. Whatever your specific security needs are, National Security Service provides you with top-notch security guards in New York. Protecting you is what we do best. Call us today and keep your people and property safe.
