One of Britain’s best-loved luxury hospitality chains, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts have adopted Skyguard personal alarms to offer protection for its lone workers.
The company employs over 4,000 staff at hotels and resorts across the UK and in Europe, with the safety and wellbeing of those employees being a key priority.
Shift workers, including receptionists, night porters and cleaners often find themselves working alone late at night and are therefore more vulnerable to risk. Being a safety conscious employer, the group have put in place measures to allow staff to get help discreetly if they encounter situations where they feel uncomfortable or threatened.
Macdonald choose Skyguard as the leading supplier of lone worker safety solutions to equip their night porters with MySOS personal alarms. Michael Careless, Cluster Night Manager, explains just how crucial the devices are:
“I have night porters relying on the assurance of an activation, these devices make them feel safe at night. Without this piece of technology, we would not function properly.”
