We are providing our employees with more than a simple paycheck.

How are we doing it?


We provide eligible full-time employees with more than a simple paycheck by offering ownership in the company as part of their wages. For employees, this means that they have an opportunity to share in the financial success of Intelligarde and build a future for themselves.

To use an example, we can think about the benefits ownership like a pie. All of the money made by Intelligarde represents the whole pie. At most other companies, the pie is owned by just a few people, meaning that when the company is successful, money goes to just those few people and not to the employees that actually helped to make the company successful.

At Intelligarde, we make small pieces of the pie, called shares, available to Intelligarde employees so that when the company is successful, employees can share in the financial success as well.

What can happen over time is that the pie itself can get larger, meaning that employees who once owned a small piece of a small pie, now own a small piece of a big pie. Then, when it comes time for a major life event like the purchase of a home, purchase of a car, retirement, or many other expensive situations, the employee can choose to cash in on their piece of pie and will be paid the amount of money that their slice of the pie represents.

This program is called the Intelligarde Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP), and Intelligarde is proud to be the only security company in the world to offer it.

What does it mean for our people and our clients?

  • A significant contribution to long term financial health
  • Increased pride of employment and improved day-to-day attitude
  • The ability to formally vote and have a say on important company issues

“For employees, this means that they have an opportunity to share in the financial success of Intelligarde and build a future for themselves.”
