Our Management Model The model, which is called the ‘Toolbox”, conveys our corporate culture and creates a shared platform, which ensures that the Securitas’ core values, work methods and management philosophy are shared throughout the company. Securitas’ Toolbox management model has a methodical structure comprising several well defined areas or ‘Tools” that provide guidance for the company’s managers. Each area of the model describes how Securitas’ managers are to conduct themselves in various aspects and stages of the company’s operations. The model also describes the approach we are all expected to take with regard to the security market, our customers and our employees. The Toolbox offers practical support for managers and staff by acting as a guide at all levels and is maintained through continuous training and discussion forums. A key function of the Toolbox is to convey our corporate culture and create a shared platform, which is primarily symbolized by a focus on Securitas’ core values: Integrity, Vigilance and Helpfulness. In this edition of Stay Ahead with Securitas Ireland we will introduce the first 3 tools to you: Our Values, Our Market and the Value Chain. Our Values Integrity Our values are the foundation of our operations and the corporate culture is built on values that help to shape a long­term, financially successful enterprise by creating value for customers, employees and shareholders. They are summarized in three words: Integrity, Vigilance and Helpfulness. A Securitas employee is honest and therefore trusted to work unsupervised on the customer’s premises and with valuables. Securitas never compromises in its demand for integrity. Integrity also includes openly expressing one’s opinion, reporting improprieties and not withhold- ing information. The main purpose of our corporate culture is to devel- op competent, specialized employees and qualified professionals, whose role is to make society safer for everyone. Securitas’ success is ultimately measured by the trust we earn in our communities. 08 | Stay Ahead with Securitas Ireland - April 2019
