Protecting Your Employees

Posted: May 18, 2012 by soselectronics in Uncategorized

As a business owner or facility manager, you want your company’s employees to feel safe when they come to work. You care about their safety and peace of mind and know that if they are comfortable in their workplace environment, they will be far more effective at their jobs and happier as well, creating a more positive atmosphere for everyone!

In 2009, the Society for Human Resources Management conducted a survey that investigated 24 factors related to employee satisfaction. Among the top were pay, benefits and, surprisingly, feeling safe in the workplace environment, which even outranking the employee’s relationship with his or her immediate supervisor. Those who felt threatened or unsafe were less productive, less satisfied, less comfortable and less motivated. And we’d venture to guess that they were also less likely to stay!

When it comes to taking care of your employees, it’s important to address the issue of physical security. While no two businesses carry the same risks, one thing is certain: No one is immune. Whether you run a 24-hour convenience store in a high-crime area or manage an office building in an affluent suburb, you have to face the fact that illegal or threatening activities can happen anywhere at any time. Thus, it’s important to make sure that you have the proper security equipment in place in order to maintain the satisfaction of your employees while they are under your care, especially if they exchange money or goods with the public, work alone or in small groups during off-peak hours or if they have extensive contact with the public.

At S-O-S Electronics, we want to help you maintain a positive work environment and overall employee well-being by helping you find the right security system. With a broad range of options, we can work with you based on your business and location to establish a comfortable and safe environment for your hard workers. Call us today!

Don’t Blow It

We see it all the time in the security business. Business owners get panicked by a nearby break-in or criminal activity in their area and overreact by impulsively buying complex, pricey security systems. They install high-dollar devices and equipment that could protect a maximum security prison, when, really, a much smaller system would have offered adequate protection for far less.

Honestly, we understand. Your business is your livelihood, and you need to protect it with quality security systems. However, more often than not, you don’t need the most expensive system to get the right amount of coverage.

At S-O-S Electronics, we have a simple motto: “Security you can afford. Because you can’t afford not to be secure.” Part of our goal is to help business owners get the protection they need without going bankrupt in the process. Affordable security really is possible, regardless of where your business is located. We offer a variety of solutions for your facility that can keep criminals at bay and bring you peace of mind.

One piece of advice we like to offer business owners and property managers is to make a list of current security issues and potential threats. Then, before shopping online or going to a retail store to find out what systems are available, contact us for help. We can help you explore your security options and find the system that is right for your property and business. It’s our job to know what is available and for what price, and we want to help you find the perfect solution for your budget.
