Bank Security In a Post Covid-19 World
Recently when Covid-19 became a reality it was natural, almost oddly comfortable for STS Group to shift gears and begin adapting.
STS Group was founded in 2007, at the beginning of the worst economic downturn, most of us have ever experienced. In many ways this was a blessing. We had to adapt or fail and the lessons learned along the way are only taught by experiencing tough times.
“I learned during that experience that hard times can build character and fuel ingenuity.” – Scott Couch
Because of this, we were ready to adapt and take on the challenges of COVID-19. Our Executive Leadership Team met off-site and began preparing for the impact of being forced to close our offices. We created a daily scorecard so that productivity could be monitored and began a daily “huddle” conference call with the leadership team. Through this experience, we learned our staff is even more productive working from home.
Community banks and other financial institutions will also need to adapt in this post-COVID-19 world. Need an example?
“I’ve been a financial institution security professional my entire career and until now it has been unacceptable to enter a branch with your face covered.” – Scott Couch
In this new age of social distancing and virtual banking, STS Group is leading the way to safer financial institutions. We will continue to adapt together with financial institutions with the help of branch technology and security solutions.
