I’d like to provide a staffing update for all.

First, although bittersweet, our Shift Lead, Mr. Clay Streitenberger will be leaving us, but we wish him all the best in his future endeavours in his career path. We would also like to welcome aboard our newest member to the YSB team, Mr. Troy Felice!

Our Recruiting Department has been working tirelessly to support the labour demand. Stay tuned for further new team members to come!

Our Health & Safety Committee lead is now Mr. Simon Duchesne. Simon is one of our hard-working and dedicated guards; who I know will bring great feedback from the team to help grow and continue enhancing the health & safety measures at Sudbury Airport. We look forward to what he brings to the table.

As always, Site Supervisor, Michelle Rieux, has led the YSB site with passion and professionalism. I’d like to personally thank Michelle for all her endless efforts in supporting the YSB business!

Keep up the great work, YSB Team!!

We would like to welcome Rob Desjardins, who joined the A.S.P. security team at Calgary International Airport (YYC) on Feb 4, 2019 as the Operations manager for Calgary.

Rob comes to us with 40-plus years of experience in the Airline and Airport industry. He possesses an extensive knowledge of airport security policies, procedures and processes, which will be a great asset to the A.S.P. team. He has a very great reputation amongst YYC clients and other Airport parties.

We are confident that Rob will provide an expert-level of support to his team members, and we look forward to the wonderful contributions Rob will make to our A.S.P. family.

All strategies are important when training and developing a great Security Guard; the one that is often most forgotten is saying “Thank you”.

Saying thank you to a good security guard accomplishes two things. First, it shows that you have recognized the guard’s specific accomplishments, behaviors, or actions. Second, saying thank you also shows your appreciation for those same
accomplishments.

Benefits of Thanking a Good Security Guard

Outside of being the right thing to do, there
are many benefits to saying thank you. Here
are just a few:

  1. Higher morale. Being a security
    guard can be a thankless job
    sometimes. Recognizing and
    acknowledging a guard’s work will
    engage and motivate.
  2. Improved relationships.
    Improving relationships between a
    good security guard and clients, or
    your coworkers, is essential
    in providing great service. When
    there is a good relationship guards are
    more likely to go above and beyond
    the call of duty.
  3. Improved bottom line for all. By
    recognizing and showing appreciation
    to a good security guard, you are
    creating a win-win situation for all
    parties. Guards will become better
    ambassadors for employees and
    employers.
