Securitas is hosting a number of free sessions throughout the day - every employee is welcome to join in live workshops ranging from desktop yoga, mindfulness, maternity and parental leave, to challenging assertively in the workplace, a workshop which supports the global campaign #choose to challenge.
All the activities will be recorded, so employees can join in or catch up at a later time.
Shaun Kennedy, Country President, Securitas UK comments: “As technology continues to transform the security industry, new, exciting, diverse roles and opportunities are being created for both men and women. However, we still have some way to go in highlighting the variety and broad range of career options available to women working in our industry.
International Women’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all the phenomenal women we have in Securitas and discuss how we can encourage more women to join us.”
Sarah Hayes, Human Resources Director explains, “It’s really important to us that we improve the working life of our women and enable the success of women in all of our workplaces too. We’ve made a commitment to help overcome the barriers women face at work and we’re proud to be making this a reality in Securitas. We believe enabling and empowering women is not only the right thing to do, it’s essential to our success as a business.”
Recognising its commitment to all employees, Securitas UK was once again recognised as a Top Employer by the Top Employers Institute. This accolade highlighted its commitment to delivering exceptional people management and HR strategies.
