Securing our Community

Securing our community

We seek to make a positive social and economic impact on the communities in which our employees, customers and suppliers live and work around the world

As one of the world’s largest private employers, G4S already makes an important contribution to the communities in which we live and work through our payment of tax and the employment of over 610,000* people across six continents.

G4S believes the company and its employees have a duty to assist people who are less fortunate. This is embodied in our corporate responsibility philosophy of ‘giving back to the community’.
