The last 18 months have been difficult for everyone and it is important that all Integrity staff get the support they need in this turbulent climate.
When a vacancy opened on our West Midlands-based mobile patrol team Saleem put himself forward for the role. Having already demonstrated the key attributes of responsibility and reliability during his time at Integrity he would make an ideal candidate.
Due to the continued expansion of our security guarding division Integrity has taken on a Junior Contracts Manager. Chris Barton has joined the team and will get to know everyone over the coming weeks. He’ll be out and about visiting all the sites and getting an understanding of the Integrity operation! Integrity now has over 110 active employees across the country and it’s great that we’re continually adding to our growing operation.
We would like to congratulate Ian Brough and Howard Morris for receiving their 10 Years Long Service Awards and thank them for their commitment and hard work since joining the Company. Their loyal and dependable service has helped the Business and contributed towards its’ success with both the Sandwell BID and Liberty Performance Steels contracts. Both Ian and Howard joined us from G4S in 2011 and we hope there are many more years to come, well done guys.
Our In-house COVID Testing at our Solihull Office is proving very successful and gratefully to date we have not had any more staff test positive. The lateral flow testing is a fast and simple way to test employees who do not have symptoms of COVID-19, but who may still be potentially spreading the virus without being aware. The tests are easy to use and give results in less than 30 minutes. We have provided a dedicated COVID testing room at our Head Office which is secure, private and sanitised for our employees to use. We are really pleased it is making staff feel safe when coming to work, knowing that we are doing all we can to reduce the risk of COVID in the workplace.

Integrity have been awarded a new CCTV installation contract for a large Industrial Estate and offices in Coseley. Our Security Systems Team are upgrading the CCTV and infrastructure on-site and are also complementing the provision with maintenance and remote support.
