What do you love most about your job?
Security Makes Difference: Even though the security guard industry has been around in some form since people have had things to protect, I still feel like I have something to contribute. I am proud to say that I provided my security guard clients with exceptional service and now I am providing security guard companies with resources to help them be more successful. what I’m doing has truly made a difference for my customers and colleagues.
What inspired you to start your own business?
One of the main functions a security guard has is to protect people and maintain safety. Often times, the watchful presence of a security guard is enough to deter criminals and prevent incidents. People are often grateful for the presence of a security guard, and helping them feel comfortable and safe can be rewarding.
Why should our clients choose you?
1. Privately Owned Security Firm
While this may seem like a small detail at first, think about the priorities of some of the national, publicly-traded security companies. They have to please the board of directors, investors, and stock analysts. Because Harkav Security is privately owned, to be able to satisfy our clients is our top priority. We answer only to you, and we’ll never sacrifice quality to increase stock market dividends.
2. We’re Ontario Based and Ontario Focused
We’ve been in business in Ontario since 2018. We know the needs of our clients in Toronto GTA and the surrounding areas. Other companies may spread themselves too thin trying to gain a foothold all over the country, but we concentrate on one region so we can provide hands-on, personal service for each of our clients.
3. We Listen to Your Needs
Another advantage of being privately owned, locally based and consistently staffed is the ability to offer one-on-one attention. We’ll sit down with you to understand your needs, assess your vulnerabilities, and recommend the best response with a customized program that meets your security, public relations and budget objectives. We can also respond immediately to any problems or changes in your needs.
4. We Do One Thing, and We Do it Well
In an attempt to pad their bankrolls, some companies try to be all things to all clients by offering a wide array of add-on services, like investigations, access control systems, and CCTV systems. The result can be a mix of mediocre services with no real exceptional service. At Harkav Security, we focus our efforts strictly on the implementation and management of on-site security officer programs, tailored to the specific needs of each individual client. We recognize the need for these services, but we’d rather refer our clients to an independent firm specializing in those additional needs so that we can dedicate ourselves to the single task of bringing you the finest possible on-site security officer program.
5. We Continually Evaluate Our Progress
Unlike many security companies who send over their employees and hope for the best, Harkav Security maintains the highest levels of accountability for our officers. In addition to assigning attentive account managers and post supervisors, we set ourselves apart by deploying our exclusive team of highly trained field supervisors who visit your site, evaluate our employees’ performance, ensure compliance to procedures and provide coaching and even additional training for specific situations, if needed.
6. We Hire Only the Best Security Officers
Our pre-employment screening includes a thorough interview process and a complete background check. We offer an unparalleled classroom and field training program for our security officers which teaches proper procedures, province laws, how to use good judgment, communication skills, code of conduct, courtesy and much more. We also periodically evaluate our employees’ needs and offer a continuing plan of education and training for additional skills.
7. You’ll Never Pay Too Much
Instead of using a rigid, standard rate sheet, at Harkav Security, we evaluate the individual needs of each potential client prior to preparing an actual security proposal. We consider all of the variables, including the complexity of your needs, geographic location, your budget objectives, duration and volume of service, and more. Once we understand your individual needs, we will prepare a comprehensive proposal along with a proposed hourly bill rate for our services. And this evaluation service is absolutely free.
