Our ability to provide the most professional, and efficient service possible to our clients is largely attributed to the efforts of our supervisory field personnel. A supervisor’s role is to exhibit leadership and ensure that the job gets done. At the Alante Security Group Inc. training facility our supervisors are trained to be truly effective, using the most modern methods of instruction to enhance professionalism. They lead by example, are thoroughly familiar with the tasks and responsibilities of the various assignments personnel are assigned to, understand human nature and its effect on learning and retention, and they maintain a high level of integrity. Our training staff are truly professionals in their own right.
This perpetuates a professional attitude and demeanor that will gain and reinforce a positive image of security personnel and the industry itself. In so far as accessibility and response time are concerned, Alante Security Group Inc. possesses a fleet of hybrid and ultra-fuel efficient vehicles equipped with GPS systems.
This mobile availability allows for a faster response time by our supervisors to emergencies and incidents should they arise. It also increases the frequency with which we can personally correspond and interact with our guards and clients. It enables us to cover a larger geographical area in a shorter period of time. All our clients are provided with contact numbers that can be used to reach key administrators and personnel of Alante Security Group Inc. regardless of time or day.
Alante Security Group Inc. is an equal opportunity employment firm and as such we do not discriminate in our hiring practices. We stress the importance of professionalism and encourage all Alante Security Group Inc. personnel to strive for excellence in all that they do. Success comes from working together as a dedicated group of professionals with a common objective, and our objective here at Alante Security Group Inc. is to provide our customers with the highest quality service possible.
Security Guards on post are provided with a cellular Phone in order to report emergencies without delay. Our personnel are trained to contact the local authorities in cases of accident, theft or injury promptly. They will also document any unusual occurrences on our incident form. A copy of the incident form will be provided to you for review and filing, in the event it is ever necessary for production during any legal proceedings. In the event of an emergency, Alante’s Mobile Supervision Team and a member of Alante’s administrative staff will respond to the facility.
Alante avoids scheduling different guards to a specific location. Instead, our intention is to develop a core crew of personnel who become intimately knowledgeable of the staff, conditions and requirements of a specific job site. We then have one or two guards or more, depending on the needs of the location, on standby for call outs, sickness, vacations or requests for extra coverage. In this manner we tailor the coverage to the needs of the specific client.
Our Valiant© time keeping system alerts Alante’s management team of lateness or open posts in real time. In the event that a guard is running late or unable to cover his/her shift, our Supervisor will utilize our reserve force. In the rare instance a replacement is unavailable our Supervisor will respond to the location in order to assume the post.
Schedules are prepared a week in advance. Schedules are available for review upon request. Modifications are made as needed. This ensures proper coverage for our clients sites.
