Working with Constabularies across the Region

fgh-working-with-the-police-during-the-world-cupThis week we are distributing posters which aim encourage responsible drinking during the World Cup to a range of pubs, bars and nightclubs across Lancashire, Cumbria and Greater Manchester. We have worked in partnership with Lancashire Constabulary, Greater Manchester Police and Cumbria Constabulary in designing the posters and they have endorsed the initiative which aims to make people aware of their actions and not drink an excessive amount of alcohol during the games.

 

The initiative also demonstrates the level of experience we have working alongside a number of Police Forces, the SIA and licencing departments. These working relationships also mean that our clients trust us to work the key organisations that can have an impact on their business and help to protect their licence.

 

Since taking over as Licencing Sergeant in January 2013 I have developed a close working relationship with Ben Knott (FGH Security Operations Manager) who is quick to respond to any matters that arise. In this time, I have regularly interacted with Door Supervisors from FGH Security and have found them to be polite, professional and well trained. Partnerships like this can be instrumental in reducing alcohol related crime and it always puts my mind at rest when I know FGH Security are operating at a venue in my division.

FGH’s Record breaking SIA ACS score of 156

FGH Security are pleased to announce that we have achieved a record breaking score of 156 in our most recent SIA Approved Contractor audit.

A score of 142 was needed to place us in the top 38 security suppliers in the UK (out of a total of 766 SIA Approved companies).

Our research shows we are the highest scoring security company in the Northwest.

Our Business Director commented “Holding SIA Approved Contractor Status is not enough for us, we need to differentiate ourselves from the other suppliers and we challenge buyers of security to ask their supplier what score they achieved in their most recent audit. Although the score is not everything, our score of 156 is testament to all the hard working staff we have invested in. Well done everyone!”

FGH Wins Red Rose Business Award for Commitment to Skills

FGH Security has just won the Commitment to Skills Award at the Red Rose Business Awards 2014. The award, sponsored by BAE Systems, highlights not only the company’s ongoing commitment to having a highly trained and adaptable workforce but also allowing its staff to develop themselves to their full potential. FGH beat seven other finalists selected from hundreds of entrants from across Lancashire to win the award. The judges said, “FGH Security showed passion and enthusiasm to training both internally and externally and commitment to the long-term unemployed and young people.”

“The award puts us head and shoulders above other security providers in Lancashire and is testament to the focus that we have placed on training within the company over the years and the real benefit that this provides to clients,” explained Peter Harrison, Managing Director. “Our service is centred around real added value so when you work with FGH Security you can rest assured that the staff that make up our Corporate Guarding, Venue Security and Crowd Management services are not only some of the best in the security industry but also provide a level of service that any other external supplier you work with would find hard to beat”.

RRA14 'winner'FGH’s entry focussed on three key areas of the business; leadership development, professional development and placing young people into sustainable employment. Leadership development within the company focuses on developing key management and senior staff members within the company so they are more effective at getting the best out of the staff they are responsible for. Professional development within FGH is centred on job enrichment which provides the opportunity for internal promotion within the company and integrated progression. Finally, the company also has a focus on giving young people the opportunity to develop their job with them into a stable and productive career. This includes giving them a broad and transferable skills base so they are ready for the world of work.
