Resource Strategy

MASG will ensure we have trained more than adequate number of staff required at each site in order to accommodate relief, ad-hoc and last minute requests. MASG ensures abundant levels of trained personnel are maintained throughout the duration of the contract so that client stakeholders can always rely on MASG to have the capacity for surge, adhoc events and any other requirements.

For large scale events, this strategy will be used together with our Stand-by Replacement Guards tactic to guarantee sufficient guards to commence and complete the assignment.

Roster Management

Our online employee database and rostering system provides our management with complete visibility of personnel capability and experience.

Our rostering system houses all information regarding site specifications and employee qualifications, inductions and personnel experience making the process of employee shift selection quick and efficient. MASG management have confidence in the data and are therefore able to select the right people for each job every time.

Rapid Response

As Australia’s premium event provider we have a competitive advantage in providing additional staff at short notice. We will select any additional staff that are site trained. Our online roster system will support our ability to dispatch the right personnel service deliverables.

Cross Training

MASG has identified that rather than continuing the traditional method within the security industry of ‘back filling’ vacant positions or shifts, MASG has undertaken a program of cross-training security officers throughout different corporate sites. This has already allowed us to provide sufficient numbers of manpower to many clients within our corporate & retail portfolio.

After being let down by another Security Provider we decided to investigate other companies within the market place. We chose M.A. Security and have been using their services since 2014. Over this period of time M.A. Security have provided us with a very high standard of service…
