A Message from Drew Levine
As 2020 comes to a close, I reflect on what a challenging and difficult year it has been. We’ve seen civil unrest, wildfires, hurricanes and the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s been a challenge personally as we’ve been advised to stay-at-home, wear masks and not see loved ones. We’ve become experts in video calls and spent more time online to communicate with family and friends, rather than gather in homes and public places to celebrate and connect.
Despite the challenges you have shown up to support our customers who rely on your expertise and willingness to help as each day brings new changes and they are forced to adapt. Our customers have appreciated all you have done to keep them safe and are thankful for you. You wear many hats: protector, nurse, assistant, and often a friend who listens. The compassion, grace and positive attitude you bring to your role makes a difference to our customers and a huge impact on the people you are protecting. It also reflects the values of G4S.
Most recently there have been announcements about Allied Universal's cash offer for G4S which has caused some uncertainty about whether we will continue to operate independently or as a part of a larger organization. Please rest assured that we remain focused on supporting you through this and we will share further information as it becomes available.
As we prepare to celebrate the holidays and close out the year, please continue to take the necessary precautions to stay safe and slow the spread of COVID-19. Wear a mask, practice social distancing, wash your hands often, avoid individuals who have symptoms and quarantine if you are sick to help keep our teams, customers and our communities healthy. As I’ve said before, the safety of our employees and customers is our top priority and will continue to guide our actions.
Please continue our journey to positively impact our employees, customers and our company. I wish you and your family the happiest of holidays and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do to keep our customers and the public safe.
President, G4S Secure Solutions
