FGH Security has won the BAE Systems-sponsored Commitment to Skills Award at the Red Rose Business Awards 2014.
The award highlights not only the company’s ongoing commitment to having a highly trained and adaptable workforce but also its desire to allow members of staff to develop themselves to their full potential.
Eight finalists were selected from hundreds of entrants across Lancashire. The Judging Panel for the Red Rose Business Awards 2014 commented: “FGH Security showed passion and enthusiasm to training both internally and externally and commitment to the long-term unemployed and young people.”
Peter Harrison, FGH Security managing director, explained: “The award puts us head and shoulders above other security providers in Lancashire and is a testament to the focus that our company has placed on training over the years and the real benefit that this provides to clients.”
Harrison continued: “Our service is centred around real added value so when companies work with FGH Security they 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 would find hard to beat.”
Three key areas of the business
FGH’s award entry focused 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 such that they’re more effective at getting the best out of the staff for whom they are directly responsible.
Meanwhile, professional development is centred on job enrichment which provides the opportunity for internal promotion within the company and integrated progression.
Finally, FGH Security also has a focus on giving young people the opportunity to develop their job roles into a stable and productive career. This includes affording youngsters a broad and transferable skills base so that they’re ready for the world of work.
