As a leader in the security and related services industry, our clients place in our care their most valuable assets and it is imperative we protect these assets with due diligence, while taking into consideration ethics and cultural values. In achieving this, our approach to sustainability places focus on inclusion and service to the community.
Premised on feedback from surveys carried out by a wide range of stakeholders on the best way of achieving our social responsibility of inclusion, service to community and ethical business sustainability, our core areas for CSR are:
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
HOGAN GUARDS LIMITED (HGL) has been in the private guard and security solutions service for over four decades. Our sustenance has been fueled by our desire to ensure protection of lives and property, by way of providing various security solutions while keeping ethics and best practices in mind.
WELFARE OF EMPLOYEES
As an employer of thousands of field operatives, the welfare and satisfaction of our workers is of great importance to us. To this effect, we endeavor to negotiate the best price obtainable (taking into consideration statutory deductibles) before taking on contracts and this is to ensure our field operatives are adequately compensated and taken care of.
CORE AREAS OF CSR
- Security: Security is one of the major challenges faced by every class in Nigerian society and its effects are more far-reaching than anticipated. Thus, as a security company, partnership with the police and other law enforcement agencies is important. Also, as part of our social responsibility, we provide regular tips and articles on security awareness via the Hogan Guards blog and our various social media platforms. We also encourage regular visits to the site, for updates on the happenings in the wake of terrorism, incessant rape, and other security threats.
- Sport: The total wellbeing of the populace is of great importance to us at HGL and therefore, we thrive to ensure this by providing sports facilities and funding competitions among members of staff, intercompany games, and among schools around the nation.
- Community: We are concerned about the community at large and we always seek ways or means of intervention to make life easier for the citizens. For this reason, we put in our weight when needed for the grading, elevation, and construction of access roads. This eventually serves the greater good of the Nigerian road user.
- Environment: We believe in a green society and we therefore always look for ways of ethically disposing of waste, recycling, and ensuring there aren’t unnecessary emissions to the atmosphere. At HGL, we thrive to use energy minimally, by introducing energy-saving bulbs and appliances, inverters, and solar lights.
To promote deforestation and reforestation, we ensure the use of less paper, by communication via online means and promoting tree planting.
We are committed to having a safer atmosphere for humans, plants and animals to thrive.
