As one of the world’s largest employers, G4S was asked to participate in the development of the charter, aiming to encourage good recruitment practices covering flexible working, candidate experience and extending good practice equally to permanent, temporary, contract and part-time workers.

The REC Charter will give companies access to advice, guidance and research on the latest innovations in recruitment good practice, as well as self-assessment tools to evaluate recruitment processes and identify areas for development.

Recruiting over 200,000 people a year, G4S was able to offer best practice guidance from across the globe, covering over 120 countries.

Colin Minto, Group Head Resourcing and HR Systems at G4S plc, and member of the REC advisory panel, said: “G4S employs over 618,000 people in over 120 countries, so making sure we have the right people for the job is crucial to our success.

Attracting and retaining the top talent across our business starts with a best in class recruitment process, and the principles of the Good Recruitment Charter are a strong foundation on which to build better recruitment practices for all companies.

“We were pleased to be able to offer a broad range of examples and best practice from across the regions and territories in which we operate.”
