WOMEN IN SECURITY: KST CONTINUES TO LEVEL OUT THE PLAYING FIELD

Monday 01 March 2021 - Kings Secure Technologies

 

PRESS RELEASE

 

01 March 2021: The Security industry is often considered stereotypically male, and this outdated image may be off-putting to many women who would otherwise thrive in a security role. Kings Secure Technologies (KST), a market leader in security services in the UK, is looking to change the landscape of the industry to better facilitate female workers.

There has been much written about gender pay gaps over the years, but there are other issues that affect women's role in the workplace.  Gender equality and women’s empowerment are essential for achieving an inclusive and sustainable workforce, along with economic growth.  It has been an uneven playing field that KST endeavours to change.

With International Women’s Day (March 8th) fast approaching, The Kings Secure Technologies group of companies is committed to take action against inequality in the workforce and celebrate women’s achievements.  We pledge to:

Build a gender-balanced organisation with a focus on management

Promote safety for women in the areas where we operate

Enhance access to training and promote skills for women across our value chain

Continue the dialogue around empowering women within our workforce

Follow-up on our commitments to women

Bob Forsyth, CEO of the Kings Secure Technologies group of companies said: "We are proud to make this pledge to women's empowerment and corporate responsibility.  This commitment will help us make a lasting impact on the Security sector and build a sustainable company that takes diversity, equality and inclusion seriously."
