Everyday Rock Stars: Des Moines

Nov 21, 2019

In 2019 Per Mar launched its Everyday Rock Star Program. This program is a way for the company to acknowledge “Rock Star” employees throughout the Security Officer Division. These employees continually go above and beyond. They are leaders in their workplace and truly carryout the mission and values of Per Mar.

This blog highlights the Rock Stars from our Des Moines Branch. We asked each Rock Star a few questions to get to know them personally. Take a moment to learn about the person behind the Security Guard uniform!
