|Keyways has grown into one of the country's major independent companies as a result of the hard work and commitment of the company's employees, many of whom have been with the company all their working lives. Employees who served their apprenticeships with other companies have found in Keyways an employer who is "committed to their security" and as such have joined in a partnership with the company for benefit of the Company and the employee alike.
It is part of the philosophy of Keyways to ensure that the work - life balance is taken into consideration and as such Keyways is a versatile and sympathetic employer. To confirm our commitment to our staff we applied for, and were accredited as an "Investor in People". This accreditation is a mark of a company that considers its position within its market, strategically plans for the future and evaluates the outcome of actions placed. A significant part of the planning and appraisal process is a commitment to training and employee development. Keyways is one of the few companies that can boast that all of its technical managers have been promoted from technicians. This means that they are aware of the needs of their staff and as part of the Company's appraisal process will have an annual meeting on a one to one basis to discuss the employee's development. This is in addition the team briefings that are held for all departments where ideas and suggestions can be discussed and implemented.
Keyways is a privately owned family business that has traded for over 50 years. The Company employs just fewer than 80 staff at its two locations, one in Altrincham in Cheshire and the other in Kendal in Cumbria. Keyways is an NSI Gold approved company for intruder alarms, access control and CCTV which also incorporates the international quality standard ISO 9001 2000.
