Halfway through the year already, how did that happen?!  We may only be 6 months in, but we already know that 2021 will be a year for to remember at MAN Commercial Protection…we are so pleased and proud to share that we have been named ‘Business of the Year’ at the 2021 British Security Awards! The awards, conducted by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) were held remotely on 30th June due to current restrictions. As well as our fantastic win, we also reached the national finalist shortlists in three further categories! 

We are extremely proud of every single member of the MAN Commercial team across the UK and thank them for the part they have played in making this achievement possible!

As if our BSIA Awards win wasn’t enough to make the year stand out in the MAN Commercial history books, we will also remember 2021 for the opening of our brand new Head Office space. As we’ve mentioned over the last few months, we have taken ownership of a second office in Highlands Court, where our current HO already operates. June saw renovations completed, right down to bespoke personal touches such as branded accessories, custom-made furniture and state-of-the-art tech equipment. 

With staff due to relocate into this space at the start of July, we make way for modifications on our Control Room to begin. We are planning a large expansion of 24-hour business hub, as well as our secure keyholding office. 

We will continue to post lots of updates on this exciting process on our social channels, give us a follow to keep updated!

June also saw the installation of our custom marble office ‘HQ’ sign that we commissioned at the start of the year. Structured overseas from Italian marble and completed in the UK, we are delighted with the result and it now sits proudly outside number 5 Highlands Court. It is a real ‘wow’ piece and has already proved a talking point with visitors. 

Our electric charging points installed in May are now up and running, with team members already impressed with the convenience and ease of charging their electric and hybrid vehicles while at work. Plans are underway to reap the benefits further and convert even more of our fleet vehicles to electric over the next 12 months. 

June has been an exciting time for our events teams, with some large-scale public events finally given the green light in the UK. We were very exciting to get back to what we know and love, with teams back at live boxing in Telford on the 5th, and up in Scotland at Hampden Park on the 29th for an exciting Euro 2020 last-16 clash. We look forward to more great assignments ahead, with many more events booked in over the Summer months.

Our annual ACS audit was completed 21st-25th June with a fantastic score attained. As always, our Compliance Team worked hard to make sure the audit went smoothly and successfully – we will be sharing this year’s score when it can be officially revealed! 

There were more updates and additions to our Recruitment Team in June, Chloe McCarthy being promoted to Recruitment Manager. Chloe started with the company a year ago has consistently grown and improved the company’s recruitment process and capacity; as a result she has now hired 2 new team members to work closely with her. 

Our Accounts Assistant Pheobe celebrated her 21st birthday at the end of the month. Pheobe has been with us for three years and has worked up through our apprenticeship scheme. We wanted to make her day special so we arranged a bbq lunch for her, enjoyed by the whole Head Office team.
