This course can assist salespersons from becoming a victim of crime by protecting person and property.

47 Security and Human Resource: Effective Manpower Scheduling Techniques Tue, 29 April 2014 Tue, 29 April 2014 1000 TTD Per Seat

Course Fee $1,000.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: In the security and public safety industry, an integral function of supervisors and human resource personnel is the effective scheduling of manpower resources. For instance, officers are to be scheduled for various shifts, days and times of the week, placed in various clients’ locations probably across the country, allocated based on the type of security services required whether armed officer, baton officer, canine, etc. This can be a very challenging exercise and requires appropriate expertise to manage such operations and ensure that the clients’ needs are satisfied as well as contractual obligations are met. The task also requires emergency rescheduling operations, for example, when officers are absent from work, late to work, fall ill, is on vacation, leaves the job, etc.

Matching officers’ capabilities, workload as well as contract obligations is a key element in human resource matters for security and public safety institutions. This course tackles all of these issues and more from a professional standpoint by sharing key principles, strategies and readily implementable solutions.

48 Security and Human Resource: Successful Officer Retention Strategies and Practices Mon, 10 February 2014 Mon, 10 February 2014 1000 TTD Per Seat

Course Fee $1,000.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The security industry is plagued with the problem of officers not staying with a particular company or even within the industry as a whole for any reasonable time. This can be disastrous to the company or industry for many reasons. It affects stability, continuity, and importantly, the bottom line – profit – as companies have to repeatedly source, train and retrain personnel. Companies may therefore become reluctant to invest in training for officers because they may suddenly depart. This does not auger well for the officer, company and industry.

Resultantly, there is the pressing need for the timely development and implementation of appropriate officer retention policies and strategies. This brings tremendous benefits to companies and the industry. This course tackles such matters head on. Case studies and other illustrations with technical human resource management recommendations targeted specifically to the security industry will be presented and discussed in class.
