What’s the most valuable asset to your company? Your people. The individuals that work for you are the backbone of your business, and keeping them safe, happy, and satisfied is a critical part of furthering your business’s growth and building your professional reputation.
The Great Resignation Taught Us – Workers Want More Than A Paycheck
As the Great Resignation revealed, it takes more than a paycheck to retain top employees. People want more than just money. They want to feel valued, appreciated, and safe at their jobs.
93% of workers say their mental, physical, and emotional well-being is more important than their pay – Deloitte
One of the best ways to make your employees feel appreciated and valued is to improve security measures at your place of business. Preventing crime not only makes your employees feel safer, but it protects your profits, too.
16% of assaults and 7% of robberies happen at the workplace.

We should all feel safe when we come to work. Unfortunately, even if your business is located in a safe neighborhood (many freight yards, industrial sites, and manufacturing plants are not), there’s always a risk of crime no matter where you are
Criminal Instances That Can Affect Your Employees
Imagine that a criminal or gang of criminals enters your property with ill intent. Either through direct targeting or simply “being at the wrong place at the wrong time,” your employees could become a victim of:
- Theft of their personal vehicles
- Theft of possessions such as wallets or purses left in lockers
Any of these situations could have devastating consequences to the victim, the company’s reputation, employee morale, productivity, and commercial insurance rates. In the case of the most tragic crimes, your company could also potentially lose millions in a lawsuit.
1. Reinforce Your Perimeter Security
The best way to prevent crime is to keep criminals off your property in the first place. Take stock of your current perimeter security measures and consider these factors:
- Is your perimeter fencing at least 6 feet tall?
- Does it have any gaps or loose places where criminals could slip through?
- Is it electric? A fence that’s easily scaled is simply a speed bump, not a stop sign. But the stopping power of a commercial electric fence like our Electric Guard Dog™ Fence stops criminals cold before they put your employees at risk.
2. Flood Your Commercial Site with Bright Light
Thieves depend on the cover of darkness to sneak in and out of your property. Adding bright lighting that floods your entire site, and paying special attention to parking lots, gates, and entrances can deter thieves from entering your property. This is especially important if you have employees on-site at night when a property crime could unintentionally become a crime of bodily injury or even death.
3. Install Video Surveillance
Video surveillance deters crime from both inside and outside your company. Knowing there will be evidence of their activities can prevent a wide range of crimes, including theft and assaults perpetrated by your employees against each other.
