Axis Security has been nominated in four categories at the Security and Fire Excellence Awards, including Security Guarding Company of the Year, The Inspiration in HR Award, Security Manager of the Year and ACS Champion of the Year.
A previous winner of the Security Company of the Year, achieving excellence has continued to be a priority for Axis Security, evidenced by recent membership of the Institute of Customer Service. This partnership is delivering a range of improvements across the business as well as building a longer-term customer service strategy and bringing a new range of leaning and development opportunities for employees.
High-level customer service is a priority across the entire business and Jonathan Levine, Axis Group CEO, believes its continued success comes from working with the right clients: “We are partnering with clients who value excellent customer service, recognise the importance of security, and who are willing to match this recognition with a commitment to invest in the people and technology that protects them.
“We continue to champion our employees,” he continues, “and we expect 2017 to be a defining year for Axis Security and the rest of the Group; one that puts their careers and their learning and development at the heart of what we do as a business.”
The main focus for Axis Group in 2017 has come from underpinning its corporate objective with a long-term People Strategy, which saw the successful launch of The Axis Academy to bring all outsourced training in-house. The work undertaken by the HR team to successfully launch The Axis Academy has led to its nomination for The Inspiration in HR Award.
As well as team recognition, individuals have also been singled out, leading to the nomination of Matt Hollick – Security Manager at Paternoster Square – as Security Manager of the Year.
Matt chairs the Paternoster Square Security Forum, which has 30 members, promoting information and intelligence sharing between local businesses, and he has also developed a project aimed at bringing together organisations across the City of London to communicate live incidents and improve preparedness in the event of a disruption or emergency situation.
Axis Security’s continued commitment to ACS has led to its final nomination as ACS Champion of the Year. The nomination follows a very impressive ACS score of 173 out of 174, and a score increase year-on-year for the past nine years demonstrating a real dedication to making improvements at all levels.
Commenting on the successful nominations, Jonathan Levine praised the efforts of everyone working for and with Axis Security: “I am proud of what we have achieved and to receive an unprecedented four nominations shows that we continue to deliver best-in-class services to our customers and our employees.”
