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.
