Securex Agencies (K) LTD has added 50 new motorbikes to its operational fleet in a bid to bolster its mobility and reach within Nairobi County and its environs.
The motorbikes, handed to employees at supervisory level, are part of a revolutionary motorbike loan scheme launched during the handing-over ceremony held at the Securex House earlier this month.
Securex is offering the bikes to all Supervisors, Field Officers, Technicians, Contract Managers and Back-up Response riders at a greatly subsidized cost which is to be repaid over a two-year period.
Speaking after the handing-over ceremony, Securex Group Managing Director Tony Sahni noted that the move was a mutually beneficial scheme for the firm and its employees, with clients also standing to gain from the increased mobility of the workforce.
“Operationally, it’s great because we get more boots on the ground ready to respond to any incidents. Increased mobility for our emergency back-up riders means an even faster response time for our clients as well. For our employees it’s a good motivational factor since they now own the motorbikes at a fraction of their actual cost. It’s a win-win scenario for the firm, our clients and employees.”
The second phase of the scheme, featuring the handing over of a further 50 motorbikes, will be rolled out in the coming weeks. Over 250 members of staff are expected to benefit from the loan scheme.
