An interesting thing about Apple is the company’s increasing need for security. Most Apple Stores were major launches are made, or in very popular areas often need some form of human protection in order to make sure that people do not bulge inside the store, or accidents happen. This is quite common over in the Silicon Valley, where Apple has quite a large number of private security contractors.
Now, a recent report shows that the company has decided to hire all of these private contractors full time and give them the full benefits. Like many other stories, this one also has two sides. One may be that Apple has a continuous need for security and finds it economically unfeasible to hire private contractors instead of employing some people full-time. The second idea may be that Apple has joined an interesting movement which is trying to create more jobs for people from all around the United States. Additionally, the company may also be aiming to prove to others that hiring someone full-time and granting them all of the benefits that come along with the position is both economically fulfilling for the company, but is also a practice that can ensure that more and more of those who are hired will actually go ahead and do their jobs right.
While Apple doesn’t currently have any form of security in its Apple Stores away from the United States, chances are that some stores will begin hiring private contractors to ensure security whenever an important event is due to happen. Countries where a practice like this may be recommended would be the Great Britain, China and probably Australia as well. While the company will continue to explore possibilities related to this practice, it si good to see that they are currently on the right track.
