“ZIMS” as a brand name, built its reputation, primarily as a security consultant and security services provider. Major Zaffar Iqbal Mirza established ZIMS Security in 1992. Since then, the company has grown to become one of the largest security companies of Pakistan, with over 33 branches throughout the country.
Having thrived in the security industry for more than 19 years, the management of ZIMS acquired enormous amount of experience in human resource management. The company recruited thousands of employees, managed their records and payrolls, provided them with benefits, such as Social security and employee old age benefits, and complied with their tax obligations etc. The clientele of ZIMS, mainly multinationals recognized this overlap and started to outsource their employees to them. They appreciated the level of professionalism and commitment of the ZIMS had displayed whilst providing them with security services.
It would not be an exaggeration to state that ZIMS is a great success story by any measure. It started out as a security company, but after becoming a leader in the security industry, it has also ventured into providing innovative HR solutions to other companies, under the name of ZIMS HRS.
