A Message from Stephan Crétier, Founder, Chairman, President and CEO of GardaWorld
Today and always, the safety and security of our employees, clients and general public is what is most important to GardaWorld. We recognize the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic and are taking the right measures to ensure everyone’s health and well-being. For weeks to come, we will remain focused on our clients’ needs as we know that they are counting on our organization to support them through this challenging and rapidly evolving situation.
Whether we are providing physical security in oil fields in the Middle East, supporting the cash activities of financial institutions and retailers or providing critical security information and crisis risk management counsel, our teams are trained and ready to deliver regular client services and emerging needs when and where needed.
Whatever comes, we are prepared, and we are ready:
- We have implemented precautionary measures to safeguard our security professionals and clients across all our businesses.
- We have readied our business continuity and pandemic plans, including protocols and operating procedures to ensure critical service continuity and rapid recovery in the event of disruption in all affected regions.
- From our Global Operation Center, our Crisis24 team of analysts is on high alert and providing verified and real-time worldwide updates, accessible to all, regarding COVID-19 at https://www.garda.com/crisis24/coronavirus-updates
We take great pride in the role that we play to keep our clients and their assets safe, and it is in times like these that our mission and values truly find their meaning. I am equally proud of our team of 102,000 professionals around the world, living our values of integrity, trust, vigilance and respect in all that they do, all of whom are rising to this unique complex situation.
As the situation unfolds, we will keep an open dialog with our employees, making sure that everyone takes precautionary measures while ensuring service delivery.
