Staff give kudos to SecuriGroup

Feedback is central to communication and to an organisation. And the best feedback may not necessarily emanate from an organisation’s external publics, but from its internal publics, the staff of course! SecuriGroup seems to have realised this altruism as its recent surveys in which its staff participated has shown. SG as the company is fondly called by its staff received a pass mark from them. “The participation in this round of surveys has provided a great response, allowing everyone at SecuriGroup to influence the continuing development of our organisation”, said Mr Russel Kerr, the MD.
