71 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. 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. Participants in this course will be exposed to strategies to realise such benefits for their organization.

72 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.

73 Security Management: Effective DisciplinaryTechniques Tue, 06 October 2020 Sat, 10 October 2020 1500 TTD Per Seat

All online courses are now $450.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course addresses two very serious areas in security supervision, that is, identifying the need for various types of counselling interventions for employees who may be exhibiting particular social and psychological behaviours and attitudes that warrant redress. It will also empower persons to take preventative action where necessary. 

The security and public safety industry can be a very hectic and challenging one given its main area of business - crime, violence, burglaries, robberies, long hours of work, stressful working conditions, conflicts with co-workers, personal financial strain, etc. This scenario can negatively impact the physical and emotional well-being of persons, their job performance, the relationship with their families and friends, etc. If these issues are not identified and treated in a timely manner, they can escalate and have serious disastrous consequences.

The course will also expose participants on how to detect early signs through diagnostic testing and discuss the range of solutions that can be adopted to assist affected employees.

Unfortunately, at times, situations may warrant supervisors and/or managers in security and public safety organizations to initiate disciplinary action against staff for breaches they would have committed. This, of course, should be done after due process and in accordance to company policy (where there is one). But, is that company policy effective? Do staff repeatedly break company rules and why? Do staff find new ways to circumvent rules, how and why? How can you get disciplinary processes and disciplinary action to work positively for both company and staff? These critical issues will be covered in this course. Importantly, this course will assist companies in establishing disciplinary policies or enhancing those that already exist according to contemporary standards.

The course will also show how to blend appropriate reward systems with disciplinary protocols. It presents a wide range of disciplinary processes that is available for security and public safety officers. These include innovative options within verbal, written, directive, suspension, reduction in rank and dismissals categories. Key DOs and DONTS in disciplinary processes will be shared with all course participants to ensure that their organization improves its standards and get a more disciplined staff complement.
