Dardan launch new Employee Engagement Platform

The Dardan values of People, Services and Culture are at the very core of our DNA. It is important to us that we are seen as the employer of choice not just within Dardan, we want to attract new talent into the security industry as a whole. In order for us to do this, we must go beyond standard employee perks and provide a complete employee engagement platform.

We had previously utilised Centralus for our payroll administration and benefits services, and whilst this portal had been incredibly valuable to us all, we wanted to be able to offer more to our people, and so from Monday 1st November, MIT Ventures will be our new employee engagement platform.

Both Centralus and MIT operated under the same umbrella, so the look and feel of the new portal is similar, however we made the decision to transfer to MIT due to their ability to provide all of the current services as well as an exceptional online learning programme. Through this easy-to-use portal, our people will benefit from improvements to the following:

  • E-Payslips, P60s and Pension documentation access will remain in one place.
  • Auto enrolment pension access, with real time access to pensions with investment information, fund value, performance charts and news feeds
  • New portal interface with an easy-to-use friendly menu.
  • A ‘remember me’ facility for login details & password

Leading benefits that including an online discount portal with household names such as:

  • Sainsbury’s, Tesco’s & Asda 
  • River Island, New Look & Matalan,
  • Premier Inn, Hotels.com 
  • Pizza Hut, Toby Carvery & Miller and Carter 
  • Argos and many more.

Also, from a wellbeing perspective there is immediate access to

  • Discounted Gym memberships and joining fees.
  • 24-hour access to an online GP, for our people and their families, who can diagnose through phone, Skype, and Facetime, if necessary, prescriptions service also available when necessary.
  • Private Medical – estimations and access 
  • 24-hour Help lines 7 days a week confidential Emotional Counselling (EAP) and other support

The personal and professional development of our people is something that is hugely important to us, not only will our clients benefit from having highly skilled and knowledgeable individuals protecting their locations, but our people will benefit from investing in themselves in terms of learning.

Our new employee engagement platform comes with an online learning module which is available to every single Dardan employee. The platform currently contains over 130 accredited training courses ranging from Confidence Building Training through to Emergency First Aid at Work.

Each course is made up of videos, fact sheets and knowledge quizzes. Upon successful completion, our people will receive a certificate to confirm their qualification which will be added to their personnel file.

We believe that this further evidences our investment in our people as our greatest and most valuable asset.
