Creating a More Inclusive and Diverse Security Industry
Why does it matter?
We represent our communities and consumers want retailers and service providers to reflect and understand them.
Despite the cost of not doing so we are still as a sector far from where we need to be.
- There will be a deficit of 60,000 security officers but a 7% increased requirement for security this decade
- New Talent is needed
- Diverse inclusive teams = 12% increase performance
- Inclusive companies = 19% increase financial performance
- Employees seek True ED&I Companies
Time for change
We want the Security Sector to be one of inclusivity, diversity and professionalism. We believe that everyone can excel in the field of security, and recognise the unique abilities and perspectives that each individual can bring. We need to ensure that we represent the communities we serve.
To support this, we will CREATE safe and inclusive cultures, CREATE opportunities for individuals and under represented groups to grow and develop, to remove barriers and banish old fashioned stereotypes
