Over the past few weeks, we’ve been highlighting the importance of Vancouver security guards during COVID-19. This week, we want to discuss a security option that is well worth considering: concierge services. If you own a commercial or residential property, it’s time to start looking for a security concierge service. We’ve recently received an increase in inquiries regarding concierge services during COVID-19—and for good reason. As the first point-of-contact for residents and guests, concierge security personnel work hard to protect the space and keep visitors safe. With COVID-19 in mind, this includes taking extra measures to ensure social distancing protocols are respected.
What’s so Special About Concierge Security Personnel?
A good concierge security personnel is so much more than just an average security guard. Concierges provide security services with a distinctly professional, welcoming and approachable demeanor. As the first point of contact in a residential or commercial building, the concierge is the ambassador for the safety and integrity of the building. The role demands a fine balance between professionalism, customer service and ensuring building security. Security concierges have a special rank amongst Vancouver security guards as willing, helpful and charismatic personnel.
More than Just a Welcoming Presence
Vancouver security guards at your front door keep your guests safe and your building in order. This is accomplished by maintaining access control to the building and implementing building policies. Ensuring social distancing measures are respected during COVID-19 has been a task above-and-beyond regular duties.
In the case of an emergency, security concierges are trained in first aid and act as fire marshalls. Security concierges are also trained in conflict management. This means they are prepared to address noise complaints from tenants. Finally, security concierges play the important role of monitoring security cameras to ensure the building is secure.
Thinking About Hiring a Concierge Security Service? Now is the Time
Concierge security services play a crucial role for commercial and residential properties. If you own a residential property (such as an apartment complex) or a commercial property (such as an office building or shopping centre) and don’t already have a concierge service in place, it’s time to start thinking about it. Especially with crime on the rise in Vancouver.
Concierge security services continue to play a key role in slowing the spread of COVID-19. They manage access to the building and ensure social distancing measures are respected. When the Public Health Officer decides to ease up on restrictions, having a concierge in place will help ensure order is maintained. This will be particularly important for shopping centres, as they will need to be prepared for a sudden influx of visitors. If there will still be some public health restrictions in place, concierges can address these concerns with guests upon arrival. Although we cannot predict what the future holds, it will be in your best interest to be prepared.
