National Protective Services (NPS) has re-vamped its reward and recognition program to give a special acknowledgement to those team members who have notched-up a significant amount of employment with the company.

While security can sometimes be a high-churn industry, many NPS workers are bucking this trend, with some nearing two decades of committed service.

NPS put the program in place to thank these workers. The program awards employees – including full-time, part-time and casual – starting from five years of service and then again every additional five years.

These team members are presented with a custom-made pin badge to correspond with their latest anniversary milestone, a Certificate of Appreciation and also a gift.

National Protective Services CEO Rachaell Saunders says that while newer employees also add value and fresh perspective, longer serving team members can offer a unique insight and expertise garnered only from years on the job.

“We just wanted to find a genuine way to thank these workers for sticking with us, for working in line with our company values and for giving us their best year after year,” Ms Saunders says.

“They set a great example for some of our newer employees and show how security can offer a solid career path and in various capacities.”

Ms Saunders says that long-serving employees also add value to the company’s different clients. “Our clients come to really rely on some of our team members who do regular work for them year-in and year-out. Clients trust them with keeping their own employees, workplace, products or customers safe and secure,” Ms Saunders says.

Established in 1988, NPS is a full-service security provider that specialises in combining manpower and electronic security to provide clients with an integrated solution and support.

For nearly 30 years NPS has delivered unrivalled customer-driven and focused security services to a growing list of residential, commercial, industrial, not for profit and government organisations throughout Australia.
