Benefits of having a Security Guard for your business

They offer peace of mind to you and your staff

 It goes without saying that the extra level of security offered by hiring a security guard is going to make anyone involved in your business feel safer. Your employees are going to feel more relaxed when at work, knowing that the people coming into the building are being monitored. Not only this, but in situations where staff members may be in the building alone, or without supervision, they have a sense of security that they have someone protecting them.

For yourself, hiring a security guard offers peace of mind as a business owner/ manager, in that you know that your assets are being protected by professionals with the experience to deal with any situation that may arise.

You will also find that your customers, or other people coming in and out of your business, will be more willing to deal with you if they feel protected when visiting your office or other premises, as they are made aware that you consider their safety and are willing to take steps to ensure it.

They can create trust in your brand

While branding isn’t going to be your primary reason for hiring a security guard, the presence of such security shows care in your business and can draw attention to you in a positive way. You could even use your security guards as a selling point by sharing it on social media or including them in your next branding campaign!

Your customers and the local community are likely to recognise that the security of your business is of utmost importance to you, which builds trusts and reflects well on you and your business.

In busy environments, they help to manage the crowd

Maybe you own a shop which has extremely busy periods (such as seasonal sales) or a pub/ nightclub (which may be busy on weekends), in which case you get crowds of people at once; which may not be manageable without effective security in place. If this relates to you, you will benefit from the security guard services which we offer at IPM Group UK. Speak to one of our team about what we could offer for your business on 0114 2180 679.

They monitor your surveillance cameras

Our security guard service extends further than just patrolling your property, our operatives will also monitor your CCTV and stay on the lookout for any suspicious behaviour taking

place in and around your business. This is a very important part of the service we offer, as one security guard is not able to monitor your whole building effectively without the use of cameras. By monitoring your CCTV, we can see your business from all angles at once, cutting down your costs of hiring multiple security guards.

Don’t have CCTV in place? Our friendly team can discuss the requirements for your business and advise you on the best security methods, you can also find out more about our CCTV installation service.

Our guards can be there to aid your customers

Although customer service is not the primary role of a security guard, our team have the customer service skills to be of assistance to customers and may be able to point them in the right direction if they are looking for something specific. We understand that with security guards patrolling your property, there is not always a need to have other staff members constantly on hand for customers. For this reason, our guards have experience in interacting with customers and can do so in a way which benefits your business.

Guaranteed fast response time

The quicker an incident or potential threat is responded to, the less likely it is to have a negative impact on your business. Our security guards are always on the lookout for suspicious activity and will respond immediately when a threat is spotted. This is very important for preventing crime as it could take up to half an hour for police to arrive, which is why our security guards can deal with the incident in the meantime.

We can assist you with events


If you don’t usually have constant security guards monitoring your property, but you have an important upcoming event, you may want to consider hiring a one-off security guard. You can use our security guard service to provide safety for your event guests, meaning that you and your guests will have peace of mind. This service is especially important for large events such as award ceremonies and corporate conferences, where it is possible to become a target for criminals.

They prevent crime!

Ultimately, the job of our security guards is to prevent crime from happening. With our experience and expertise in home and business security, we can work with you to prevent criminal activity and to provide you with a safer environment for yourselves and others.

The types of risks that our security guards can mitigate include theft, vandalism and assault. Our operatives have the training to deal with varying levels of crime and will deal with any matters in a professional and effective way.
