ARMX celebrates International Security Officers’ Day for first time in Sri Lanka
ARMX Security Solutions Private Limited celebrated International Security Officers’ Day on 24 July, for the first time in the history of Sri Lanka’s security industry.
An initiative that all partnering clients took to heart, involved a series of attempts to appreciate and recognise the 24/7 service of security officers attached to a variety of businesses. This celebration followed the precedent of the celebration of International Security Officers’ Day, across the world and was introduced by ARMX to Sri Lanka.
An occupation that demands extensive hours, long nights and most often times living away from their families, these security officers are underappreciated. In worse cases, they deal with severe verbal, mental and emotional abuse while on the job. Trained to quickly adjust and provide service with a smile, they lack the recognition they deserve for their service.
Following in the footsteps of the global celebration of International Security Officers’ Day, AMRX decided to initiate the celebration in Sri Lanka hoping that it will make a difference, opening the eyes of Sri Lankans and people around the world to the importance of treating security officers with kindness and respect.
The feelings of fulfilment that come from being appreciated and valued for their services are sure to further motivate these hardworking individuals. A trusted security solutions provider partnering with Sri Lankan businesses that seek to compete in a global dynamic, ARMX strives to change the perception of security officers by giving unskilled people the training required to enter the workforce as skilled security officers. By instilling a mindset of respect and pride in work, ARMX aims to be the undisputed leader in the Commercial Security Industry of Sri Lanka. With a motto of, “We succeed, when you succeed”, this organisation perseveres towards excellence in service and prioritised their customers.
Founder of ARMX Sri Lanka, Janaka Batawalage commented on the celebration, “You could be a CEO of a company or a security officer but it’s important to remember that both are trying to put food on the table for their families. We understood that treating security personnel with the respect they deserve, increased the loyalty and commitment towards the client. We are fortunate that our clients have recognised this value and have taken the steps necessary to make this day a success.
We hope too that this day, which is celebrated throughout the world, will take flight and that all businesses across the island will celebrate this day on the 24th of July in the years to come.”
