Africa Top Employer 2017

G4S is the only private security company in Africa that has ever been awarded Top Employer certification. This is a remarkable triumph, particularly as the company has been awarded 9 certifications in 2013, 11 certifications in 2014 and 2015, 13 certifications in 2016, 2017 and now again in 2018. Independent research by the Top Employers Institute shows the company looks after its people exceptionally well, offering employees an engaging and safe working environment where their contributions are valued.
I believe that G4S’s solid people practices, effective training programmes and strong drive towards up-skilling and developing its people, and the industry, have resulted in this international award and clearly set us apart from our competitors. Our business is defined by the high standards and expertise of our people, and our customers rely on us to provide high quality, screened, effective employees to secure their assets and business activities
Mel Brooks Regional President, G4S AFrica
The Top Employers endorsement recognises top employers through a stringent certification process evaluating internal HR policies and procedures and is awarded to companies that achieve the highest standards of excellence in employee conditions. The annual international research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, acknowledges leading employers around the world. This prestigious certification is rewarded to organisations that provide outstanding work environments, nurture talent throughout all levels of its operation and strive to continuously improve occupational practices. 

The Institute has just announced the overall results of this year’s research into the employee conditions of significant employers in the region. Only organisations that achieve certification in at least five countries within the region deserve the special Top Employers Africa 2018 recognition. G4S has been certified in 13 countries, including Botswana, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, DRC, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia - an accolade that makes G4S stand out in the exclusive and internationally renowned community of Top Employers in Africa.
