Course Fee $1,000.00

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. It will strengthen the human resource capacity of security and public safety companies in manpower scheduling matters. Effective scheduling of manpower often leads to improved employee morale, customer service, efficiency and continuity in business activities.

54 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.

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.

This brings tremendous benefits to companies and the industry. This course tackles such matters head on.
