Private security (PS) sector has become increasingly important element for safe society, and can be seen in businesses and residential homes, public places, schools, factories, airports etc. and is definitely with significant society importance. However, respectable studies indicate that the PS sector is struggling with human resource management issues, such as: lack of qualified employees to answer the market needs; high turnover rate of employees and lack of interest for the job. Moreover, there is evident lack of knowledge and practices of equality, diversity and inclusiveness in the sector. Inclusion and diversity are core values for the European Union, everybody should get a fair share of opportunities for employment, so socially marginalized individuals, persons with fewer opportunities, Roma minorities etc. are considered to be of great importance and interest of the private security as future employees. Base on the noted, the main objective of this project is to improve the inclusive human resource capacities (recruitment and selection) in the PS sector with respect of diversity and equality. Thus the project will target the PS sector, providing inclusive systematic approach in the field of improving and extending the high quality training opportunities and empowering people through the acquisition of new skills in the PS sector. European data show that there are around 2 million PS guards, employed in 45.000 companies, who manifest low employee diversification rates, no policy for inclusion and no evident practices for equal opportunities of different groups of individuals who face some employment barriers. Researches conducted by the Macedonian and Slovenian State employment agencies indicate major demand for PS workers, therefore these agencies are focused on directing the unemployed personnel to the PS industry, but again without clear inclusion and diversification principles. At the same time, the companies from PS sector have structural HR policy weaknesses and are lacking of inclusive HR qualification. Recruiters in the PS companies are mainly “security” managers (experts) that in real live are struggling to find their way through diversified recruiting scenery and inclusive HR management. Thus, this project will improve recruitment and selection capacities in the PS sector with respect to equality and diversification, and create positive climate for inclusive workforce. The project will create special training program and directly train selected staff from the PS companies in partner countries on how to become successful recruiters for inclusive labor force, educating the recruiters for the positive contribution that diversified and inclusive workforce and people with fewer opportunities may bring to the working climate in the companies and general progress. At the same time this project will address the needs of the National Agencies for Employment to identify diversified candidates and candidates with fewer opportunities for job in the PS sector (Roma, socially marginalized people, single-parenting families etc.) This project will provide open access to inclusive employment for around 400 people who face employment barriers due to education, geographical region, nationality etc. and will develop Strategic Framework that will provide clear guidance for inclusive and diversified workforce and fair employment in the PS companies for future use. Thus, the practice of employment of diversified workforce will become part of the organizational culture of the private security companies and will be practiced in future, after the end of this project, delivered by the trained personnel for inclusive and diversified recruitment and employment and additional adult (sector specific vocational) training for people with low level of skills and knowledge and competences.
The project will target the Private security (PS) sector, providing systematic approach in the field of improving and extending the high quality training opportunities and empowering people through the acquisition of new skills in the PS sector from the field of inclusive employment, diversified workforce and equal opportunities for work and training for people with barriers based on ethnicity, religion, education etc. The project will directly foster implementation of life-long learning principles in the field of recruitment and selection of diversified personnel, tailored to the needs of the PS sector answering the national priorities for inclusive workforce. This project will contribute for: (1) High learning opportunities for adults with new innovative training blended learning program with development of high-performing digital training system; (2) Promotion of new adult training opportunities for adults with a low level of skills, knowledge and competences (3) Equal opportunities and access, inclusive approach to training and employment, contribution for social inclusion of groups of people with fewer opportunities who face training and employment barriers due to ethnicity, social marginalization, education and other discrimination factors. Base on the above, the main objective of this project will be to improve recruitment and selection capacities in the PS sector with respect to equality and diversification, and create positive climate for inclusive workforce. The primal goal will be to educate selected staff from the PS companies in partner countries on how to become successful recruiters for inclusive labor force. Hence, this project will produce around 805 certified internal corporate level recruiters specialized for inclusive private security and 100 Sourcing specialists for diversified private security staffing. The second objective will be to improve the quality of the advisory process in National Agency for Employment to identify diversified candidates and candidates with fewer opportunities for job in the PS sector. The project will be to practically use the learned skills and recruit 400 candidates from groups of unemployed individuals with fewer opportunities (Roma, socially marginalized, single-parenting families etc.) for whom project partners will arrange employment in the PS companies, members in their organizations. Based on the noted, this project will advocate the need for inclusive, diversified human resources methodologies, tools and techniques, grounded on equal and fair opportunities for training and employment of all people. These practices will be adequate both for the PS companies and for the National Agencies for employment, with the overall goal to set clear practice of inclusive and diversified employment in the private security sector. Additionally, outlining the inability of PS companies to invest in in-house training for inclusive and diversified recruitment and employment, this project will overcome HR skills gap regarding the inclusive employment and will raise the awareness within the society for equal carrier opportunities in Private Security Sector with inclusive and diversified approach for all people.
