In recent months, ‘The Great Resignation’ has earned headlines across North America. Companies are struggling to hire and retain talent in the workplace, with many business leaders turning a blind eye to the core reasons why people aren’t jumping at their job vacancies.
In many industries, workers have long dealt with issues such as poor pay, poor working conditions, and heavy workload. As employers look to staff up, quality candidates realize they don’t have to deal with this reality any more. Instead, they’re looking to work for companies that appreciate their value, help them grow, and provide a culture that aligns with their values.
At Blackbird Security, culture is central to everything we do. When we founded the company, we had four core principles in mind:
What this means in practice is that we treat others with dignity and respect at all times, ensuring all decisions and actions are conducted without bias, functioning as one team regardless of how big the company grows, and constantly striving to learn, grow, and adapt to stay current with changing safety and technological needs. However, we acknowledge that culture isn’t enough. If you want to hire and retain quality staff, you need to make an effort to impress.
Quality Perks for Quality Work
Our aim as a business is to exceed expectations and deliver value to our clients. We achieve this through our outstanding team of professional security guards. We strive to hire hardworking, trustworthy people and empower them to perform their roles to the maximum of their ability. For this, we offer the following range of benefits:
