We continue to invest in the training and development of our employees at all levels so that they can reach their full potential.

Inclusive Learning

At G4S we work hard to ensure everyone has access to learning and development opportunities. We strive to foster a culture of continuous development and encourage people at all levels and stages of their careers to develop the right skills so they can reach their full potential.

We do this in a number of ways. This year we have further invested in our learning platform and now have more than 5,000 learning resources. These include an extensive range of e-books, audiobooks, virtual live classrooms, interactive games and e-learning courses, many of which are available in multiple languages for employees to access at a time to suit their schedule and learning style preferences. The courses support orientation and onboarding programs for new employees, as well as the development of professional and operational skills for frontline team members. 

This year we have invested in technology to help increase the number of online learning programmes and resources we can offer in multiple languages.

Leadership Programme

The Next Level Leadership Programme (NLL) is our global leadership programme and is designed to prepare future leaders to fill key strategic roles across the company.

In 2022, we saw a cohort from our Africa region graduate and four new cohorts start their NLL journeys. In 2023, we will welcome a further 80+ delegates from across both G4S International and Allied Universal® to our NLL alumni.


This year, we have introduced ‘Perform’ as a performance management module within our learning platform. This technology has given us the ability to manage our performance management and objective-setting processes online. Moving forward, this new approach will provide better links between the learning needs identified and the digital learning resources available.

In addition to ‘Perform’ in May 2023, we launched a new social learning module within the learning platform called ‘Engage’. This module provides us with a new and exciting way of connecting with our colleagues across the world and sharing learning in a more informal and engaging way.

Our purpose

Our purpose, vision, mission and values are core to shaping the culture of our organisation, helping to guide, unite, differentiate and sustain us. They are integral to everything we do.
