G4S Secure Solutions – Why Work For Us?


G4S secures people, property and assets by understanding and mitigating security risk

G4S secures your people, property and assets by understanding and mitigating security risk. We offer a suite of products and services — including risk consulting and investigations, systems integration, security software and technology, and security professionals — that align to deliver innovative, essential and scalable solutions that span your entire operation.

Although each G4S solution is market leading on its own, we can combine our offerings to provide a comprehensive customer experience that delivers real, sustained and measurable value.

Drawing on more than 100 years of history, G4S is proud of its distinct culture and strong values

These values – listed below – guide how we conduct our business and develop positive relationships with all our stakeholders, including customers, employees, investors and the communities in which we work.

Each value has a senior executive ‘champion’ within the Group who is responsible for ensuring that it is embedded into the way G4S conducts its business throughout the world.

Our values

  • Customer Focus – we have close, open relationships with our customers that generate trust and we work in partnership for the mutual benefit of our organizations
  • Expertise – we develop and demonstrate our expertise through our innovative and leading-edge approach to creating and delivering the right solution
  • Performance – we challenge ourselves to improve performance year-on-year and to create long-term sustainability
  • Best People – we always take care to employ the best people, develop their competence, provide opportunities and inspire them to live our values
  • Integrity – we can always be trusted to do the right thing
  • Teamwork & Collaboration – we collaborate for the benefit of G4S as a whole
  • Safety — the health and safety of our employees is of paramount importance

We have a duty and desire to ensure the influence we have makes a positive impact on the people and communities in which we work

Being a sustainable, ethical business is key to the ongoing success of G4S. We are trusted by customers and other stakeholders to safeguard their most precious assets and we strive to place that responsibility at the center of everything we do.

Integrity is one our core values and is an integral part of our strategy on which we carry out our business. Ethical business is not simply a solution to legal compliance. It is a means of doing business that provides customers the peace of mind that G4S will not compromise its integrity.

At G4S, we seek to make a positive impact on local communities wherever our staff, customers and suppliers live and work. In 2016, G4S offices across North America contributed more than $522,000 to various charities, employees volunteered 3,288 hours, and the company matched more than $9,000 in employee fundraising for good causes.

We are committed to responsibly managing and minimizing the direct and indirect impacts our business activities have on the environment. At G4S, we endeavor to be industry leaders in measuring, reporting and reducing the intensity of our greenhouse gas emissions. We are setting ourselves a challenging target for carbon reduction and implementing a number of programs that will drive us toward our goal.

    I have been working at G4S Secure Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at G4S are just fantastic - polite, accommodating ~ these folks actually ASK if you would like a post - they don't shove it down your throat - they treat you with respect and do not skimp on benefits - training is A+ - just the whole nine yards more than you could ask for if you want to work in the security industry. I've worked for the "other."

    Cons

    None ~ I just can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
