If everyone who contracts COVID-19 transmits it to – on average – less than one person, its spread will eventually peter out to manageable levels. This […]

Thank You to All Our Key Workers

COVID-19 continues to challenge life for all of us, but I am on the whole proud of the way people are reacting, supporting each other and coming together as communities. One such community is the private security sector. It was an incredibly important moment when the BSIA and SIA came together to lobby and ensure that security guards are recognised as key workers. They have stood up for us as an industry at a time when it truly matters Though […]

Never before have we seen anything like the current situation that we’re living through.

We’ll Do (Almost) Anything For You

“All Things for All People, Everywhere.” That’s the motto of Harrods, the department store that became famous for its ability to provide whatever its customers asked for, no matter how bizarre. The days of being able to buy baby elephants and lions from them may be long gone, but I still find their anything-for-the-customer attitude inspiring. That’s why at Magenta we’ll do (almost) anything for you. Magenta’s is not going to start selling perfumes and diamond encrusted dog jackets, but […]

Self-Employed Security Guards Are a Danger to Your Business

It’s frustrating when my potential clients don’t understand that when they hire self-employed guards, they put their business, their staff and the security guard themselves at great risk. Remember that all it takes to be a security guard is to pass training and receive a certificate. After that, any agency can scoop them up, advertise they have security officers available and then sell their services to you. You might think you’re getting a great deal as self-employed guards are usually […]
