At SECOM we take our social responsibilities very seriously, as a market leader in security we run our business in an accountable manner.
We understand that being a good corporate citizen is about taking active steps to ensure that we are a responsible employer to our staff but also to the wider communities in which we work and are committed to making a positive impact wherever we operate.
We recognise our duty of care to the environment and always endeavour to reduce our impact on the environment.
We constantly try to communicate to the public ways in which they can keep not only their property and belongings safe but themselves, family and friends too.
In order to help people feel safe and secure SECOM frequently provide many staff members and the public such as lone workers, local groups and Girl Guides with personal panic alarms.
Small enough to fit on a key ring but loud enough to startle a stranger, these alarms are handy and easy to use and have helped many people young or old feel confident and secure, thus helping to keep our society a safer place.
Each year, SECOM holds a variety of different events in order to help raise valuable funds for worthy causes, as well as help boost team moral. To date we have supported several organisations through sponsorship, charity days, raffles, corporate activities and customer events.
All of which have helped raise funds and put a smile on people’s faces. Throughout each year, our fundraising takes place via a range of events such as dress down days, cake sales, book sales, quizzes and other fun activities with all money raised going to charity. Our aim is to get our workforce to enjoy their involvement whilst highlighting the cause and the importance of the funds raised.
SECOM is dedicated to supporting charities, here are a few that we are involved in on a regular basis:
Children in Need
Jeans for Genes
MacMillan Cancer Support
SECOM is also dedicated to building awareness and raising money for less well known charities, our charity committee select a few charities each year to fundraise for based on the requests from employees, often ones that have immediately affected our colleagues.
