ATLANTA, April 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Award-winning security professionals from coast to coast packed their bags last weekend to join fellow honorees in Stone Mountain, Georgia for U.S. Security Associates' 8th Annual Winner's Circle Awards Ceremony. Award winners and their spouses or guests were treated to an all-expense-paid weekend at Stone Mountain's AAA 4 diamond Evergreen Resort. Festivities kicked off with a formal black tie awards gala celebrating the individuals who made major contributions to the organization throughout the year.
With luxury accommodations, warm southern hospitality and a welcome basket of gifts upon arrival, company event planners ensured that, down to the last detail, the Winner's Circle experience fully reflected U.S. Security Associates' appreciation of its extraordinary employees. In addition to fine dining, championship golf, and tranquil spa treatments, this year's award winners enjoyed the picturesque scenery and recreational offerings of Stone Mountain Park, including 4D theater shows, hiking, Geyser Towers, the Summit Skyride and much more.
Chuck Schneider, President and CEO of U.S. Security Associates, commented, "We make Winner's Circle a very special event, in honor of employees who have gone above and beyond their normal responsibilities to afford the company outstanding success. These award recipients embody the company's core values, mission and vision, which makes them the best of the best."
The Winner's Circle Awards recognize employees for exceptional achievement in several categories, including security officers, supervisors, staff members, branch office performance, sales production and business unit performance.
The annual Winner's Circle event is key to U.S. Security Associates' success in setting benchmarks for employee longevity, quality and performance in an industry challenged by high turnover. Company-wide, U.S. Security Associates reports employee turnover that is a mere fraction of published industry rates.
According to President and CEO Chuck Schneider, "As a company, we differentiate ourselves from "low bid" security guard firms in part through our commitment to enabling employees to achieve their career goals through award-winning training and development, attractive compensation and benefits, and performance incentives that really motivate people, like Winner's Circle. The opportunity to earn an invitation to Winner's Circle keeps our employees at the top of their game all year long. It's the ultimate "hats off" to outstanding employees – a well-deserved salute to the individuals responsible for our reputation as the best security company in the industry."
