Keeping your guests and employees safe is one of the most important and challenging tasks that a hotel manager and ownership must accomplish. Establishing a reputation for a safe and secure property is vital for growth and brand strength. The hospitality industry is demanding, and in some positions, it’s a wise choice to outsource – for a variety of reasons. Before You Begin…Making the choice to outsource a vital resource like security isn’t something you do on a whim. Be sure to take certain steps before you outsource. A few questions to get you started include:
- Why are you outsourcing?
- How will this affect your operation?
- What are the company’s policies about outsourcing?
- How will the outsourced personnel fit into your overall operation?
- What are the tasks you want outsourced security guards to complete?
The Advantages of Outsourcing Professional StaffSecurity guards that have been hired from a security company like Assured Protection will have a higher level of formal training and experience. In addition, they’re taught a variety of other useful skills, like how to interact with guests, personal appearance and self-discipline. Outsourced security guards have access to equipment, technology, and support that’s supplied by their company. When you outsource your hotel security guard responsibilities, you don’t have to worry about payment schedules, employee benefits, and payroll taxes. There’s also no need for onboarding and additional training. Not only does this save money and time for your administrative team, outsourced personnel can hit the ground running the moment they clock in for work. LiabilityIn many cases, security companies will provide liability insurance for their employees – and while necessary, it can have a major impact on your bottom line. Avoiding that primary cost represents huge savings, along with the time saved for processing insurance claims. Think of it as one less task taking up the time of your human resources department. SatisfactionWhen one of your employees is underperforming, you’ll have to take multiple steps to either correct the problem or terminate. However, when you’re working with a security contractor, a simple phone call and discussion will solve the problem. There’s no termination process to complete, severance pay, or documentation to handle.
