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”.
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.
