Securitas' three fundamental values are: Integrity, Vigilance and Helpfulness. They serve as guidance for all of our employees in building trust with customers, colleagues and the surrounding community and shape our unique cultures.
A Securitas employee is honest and therefore trusted to work unsupervised on the customer's prem-ises and with valuables. Securitas never compromises in its demand for integrity. Integrity also in-cludes openly expressing one's opinion, reporting improprieties and not withholding information.
Professionalism entails seeing, hearing and evaluating. A Securitas employee is always attentive and often notices things that others don't. Their vigilance is necessary in order to be aware of potential risks or incidents that may take place on our customers' premises.
When needed, a Securitas employee will lend assistance, even if it is not directly related to his or her job. As part of an ongoing effort to make life safer, a Securitas employee will always help if an incident occurs that requires intervention.
In 2019, we asked hundreds of colleagues in Securitas why they go to work, and what it is that unites so many people across countries and continents. The answers to these questions are reflected in our new purpose: We help make your world a safer place.
Our purpose unites us
Securitas was founded in 1934 and much has changed since. Yet our basic beliefs remain unchanged. As in the past, everything we do today is based on our strong values – Integrity, Vigilance, and Helpfulness – which have helped us ensure global business success for decades.
"Our purpose answers the question why. Why does Securitas exist? Why do we get up in the morning and – with pride – put on the uniform? Our purpose influences how we shape our strategy and how we behave. Our purpose unites us. Our purpose comes down to who we are and what we want to achieve," says Magnus Ahlqvist, President and CEO of Securitas AB.
We have evolved into one of the world's leading and most advanced security companies. Today, we proudly stand guard to protect the safety and welfare all over the world.
