Recruitment & Selection Standards

At Whelan, our people are our most valuable asset – so we have benchmarked our security personnel hiring process against the best in the security industry and identified rigorous screening and demanding selection criteria that we believe best allows us to provide superior security personnel to our clients. This screening and selection process exceeds the recommendations established in the Private Security Officer Selection and Training Guideline (ASIS GDL PSO – 2010) published by ASIS International, the preeminent organization within the security industry.

Beginning with our security personnel hiring efforts to attract employees who are seeking careers, all the way to the final background evaluation, our selection process goes well beyond technical requirements. In other words, from our initial aptitude testing to interviews to the background evaluations, our emphasis includes not only rigorous screening, but also a focus on the attributes, character traits, and values that incorporate the philosophies and expectations of Whelan and our clients.
