Our Values

our values

Our approach to both human resources (HR) and wider human rights matters is based upon accepted international standards, including the ILO Core Labour Conventions and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

We recognise the importance of our people to the company’s long-term success, and have a comprehensive HR strategy that is structured around six HR work streams.

In 2015, we commenced a review of our corporate values, recognising that they were originally developed in 2004, the year G4S was created.

While many elements of the values remain relevant to our business strategy today, we felt that they could better reflect the standards we expect from our staff and the commitments we make to our stakeholders. We have concluded our review and have launched a new set of values.

In 2016, we focused on embedding these values in our processes and practices across the group and building them into our management incentive programmes. Where incidents are reported or the conduct of our staff falls short of our values and standards, we always treat them with the utmost gravity.

We report any failures to the relevant authorities and conduct our own investigation or appoint an independent third party to carry out an investigation on our behalf. We learn from any breaches of policy or standards and adapt our practices to prevent them reoccurring in the future.

G4S values
