Securitas Security Services USA, Inc. Selects Deploy Solutions to Secure its Leading Position in Developing the Industry's Best Officer Force

With approximately 100,000 employees in North America, Securitas USA selected the Deploy Enterprise Talent SuiteTM to hire and develop the best available workforce in the industry.

Newton, MA (PRWEB) July 31, 2006 -- For most companies, their products define the value they deliver to their customers. But for Securitas Security Services USA, the largest provider of contract security officers in the United States, their employees define the value they provide to their customers, so hiring the right people is critical to their success.

With approximately 100,000 employees in North America, Securitas USA selected the Deploy Enterprise Talent SuiteTM to hire and develop the best available workforce in the industry. With Deploy, Securitas USA has the ability to source and prescreen candidates, administer Deploy Assessments to select the best available security officers, and conduct background and drug checks before a hire is made. The system will also automate onboarding, performance management, and offboarding once employees are hired. Moreover, the Deploy application will provide rich analytics and reporting capabilities to gain visibility into critical talent acquisition and development metrics.

"Concern about crime, vandalism, and terrorism continues to increase the need for security. This drives a greater demand for security officers, which in turn, drives our search for best available employees that share three core values we offer our customers: Integrity, Vigilance, and Helpfulness," said Rocco DeFelice, Executive Vice President of Human Resources & Legal for Securitas USA. He continued, "We have turned to Deploy Solutions to help us increase our applicant flow, automate and enhance our hiring processes, and manage the performance and development of our employees."

Securitas USA selected Deploy for three critical reasons: (1) a deeper and broader product suite with greater capabilities for fully automating onboarding, performance management, and other critical employee lifecycle functions; (2) proven assessment capability to help select the best officers; and, (3) flexibility in both the solution as well as in their partnership approach. Managing almost 100,000 employees over distributed locations nationwide and adhering to the various state laws governing employment practices, the need to partner with a company that evolved with Securitas USA´s business needs was essential. The Deploy Enterprise Talent Suite will allow Securitas USA to also integrate background checks, drug testing, and tax credit qualification processes to improve compliance, reduce liability, increase efficiency, and lower costs.

"We are looking forward to helping Securitas USA achieve its strategic workforce goals and to a long term and mutually beneficial partnership with our newest partner," said Nicole Stata, President and CEO of Deploy.

Deploy´s experience with hourly hiring was also a contributing factor to Securitas USA´s decision to use the Deploy Enterprise Talent Suite. Hourly hiring is a high-volume, application-driven process and a continuous process for field managers who are always taking new applications. Securitas USA wanted to implement a paperless application process that eliminated the need for error-prone handwriting interpretation and resource-intensive retyping. The Deploy solution does this and also increases the capture of tax credits while reducing turnover, no-shows, violations of company policy, and other negative behaviors often prevalent in hourly workforces. Most importantly, the Deploy solution supports a decentralized hiring process, making it the ideal solution for Securitas USA´s hiring needs.

"Securitas USA´s purchase of the Deploy solution represents the market´s largest implementation of an hourly-focused hiring solution this year," said Deirdre Aubuchon, Chief Operating Officer at Deploy. "We look forward to demonstrating our proven ability to successfully deliver such a large-scale implementation in a timely and highly collaborative manner."
