Venture Security accredited by Good Business Charter

Hampshire security specialist, Venture Security, has further bolstered its commitment to ‘raising the bar’ on quality business practices, after signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC).

The Good Business Charter recognises organisations which prioritise and care for their employees, the environment, customers and suppliers, whilst also paying their taxes according to the spirit of the law.  It was introduced by the Good Business Foundation and has the support of both the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the Trade Unions Congress (TUC), as well as key partners including the Living Wage Foundation and Prompt Payment Code.  

Chairman of the GBC board, Simon Fox, explains: “The Good Business Charter brings together 10 standards, most of which already exist, but in separate places. We have brought them together to give a coherent overall position for businesses to aspire to. We believe that the GBC has enormous potential to change business practice for good.  We hope that because of its simplicity and cost effectiveness, it will quickly gain support.”

Venture Security was founded in 2006 and provides a range of professional security services for customers across Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and Surrey. The company employs more than 100 security officers and support personnel and is ranked in the top 1% of UK providers by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).

Paul Howe, MD, Venture Security, commented: “We have always prided ourselves on being a company who do things properly and are absolutely delighted to have been recognised by the Good Business Charter for our approach to business.

“We appreciate that it can be challenging for procurers of security services to understand which supplier to work with and we feel that this accreditation goes some way to show end users that Venture Security is indeed the trustworthy choice.”

Paul continued: “One thing that really sets Venture apart from others within our industry, is our commitment to excellence. It’s the reason we invest so heavily in our recruitment and training processes, as well as cutting-edge systems and technology that supports service delivery and transparency. Alongside this, we continually strive to achieve quality standards and accreditations that demonstrate our commitment to raising the bar.”

Venture works with both private and public sector organisations, ranging from large businesses to event organisers, including Stannah Group, Simplyhealth, Stonehenge, Salisbury Racecourse and the London Marathon. Venture’s officers can also be spotted in action in towns and city centres across the region where they support local councils and Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), to help tackle anti-social behaviour.

Key services include mobile security patrols, manned guarding, premises locks and unlocks, alarm response and event security.
