A fundamental consideration facing you as an event or party planner is event security arrangements for your function.
When making this decision you may choose to take the path of least resistance and hire either the first security company that you come across or go with the cheapest option you were able to source.
This approach is fine if all you are looking to do is serve an insurance condition or look to have positions filled but this could be a expensive error as you cannot assure the class of event security worker you are hiring.
What you need consider is that event security staff are habitually the initial point of contact when anybody turns up to your event and if their appearance and demeanour are entirely deficient then it will reflect terribly on you.
Remember this, those security members hired by you will be the face of your occasion and client or company. If they blunder then the subsequent repercussions will affect your career and will be comprehensive, instant and long lasting; any impending event that you are concerned with will now be tarnished by your preceding endeavours.
It is not merely good money you are throwing away but your hard earned standing as a provider of quality services.
You may be aware of the old maxim, less is more, and when it comes to employing a quality show and event security operative then you will find it to be entirely appropriate.
There are many security companies out there and you need to choose one that offers that bit extra when it comes to their employees.
Look to hire a security company that utilises staff who share a background in the emergency services. These people will have additional core skills that an ordinary security worker can only dream about and will have used them on an almost daily basis.
The logic behind this is that not only do they have equal or superior knowledge of all aspects of security but they will be trained to a advanced degree in trauma management, they will have road traffic collision experience, emergency response driver training and abundant extra skills that an average security worker will never seek to develop.
If you are responsible for the organisation of a function and if you are given the chance of either hiring two security operatives who are on minimum wage or hiring a single guy who is, at the outset, more costly but has all of the formerly mentioned additional attributes then I would select the lone guy.
Simple, the two receiving minimum wage will not contribute any extra effort, while the single operative is a known professional and will be committed to satisfying any agreed brief to the best of their abilities.
Seen in this context then you begin to understand that two for the price of one is a false economy and that the benefits of hiring a quality operator far exceed any slight increased wage bill. A top event security employee will complement and enhance any occasion they attend and will be a worthy ambassador for your client or company.
Do your research and source an up and coming security company who look to provide event security operatives who are drawn not only from ex military backgrounds but from the emergency services.
Contacting such a security company will put you in touch with an enthusiastic firm whose workers will boast an abundance of experience and expertise regarding security and they will be professionally practised in trauma care and health and safety matters.
