G4S named a 'Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer'

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Nov. 11, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- G4S Secure Solutions (USA) has been named a Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer by G.I. Jobs magazine. The recognition is based on a survey which assesses the company's long-term commitment to hiring former military, recruiting and hiring efforts and results, policies for Reserve/Guard members called to active duty, and the presence of special recruitment military programs.

With more than 10,000 employees from every branch of service—including active duty, retired, National Guard, Reserve and former officers and their families—G4S Secure Solutions (USA) represents the interests of military officers at every stage of their careers.

As a part of the world's leading international security solutions group, G4S Secure Solutions (USA) offers a unique combination of security personnel, technology and innovation to provide clients with customized security solutions that are uniquely tailored to meet their needs.

Two decades ago, the company moved away from the old-fashioned concept of a "night watchman" and developed the G4S Custom Protection Officer® program. G4S recruits CPOs from a highly specialized talent pool; every candidate must have verifiable experience in the military, law enforcement or criminal justice field. These changes greatly narrow the field of acceptable candidates.

In fact, only one out of every 10 applicants qualifies to become a G4S Custom Protection Officer®. The result? An elite security force capable of serving clients with the most demanding security needs.

"Our commitment to veterans is unparalleled," said Drew Levine, G4S Secure Solutions President. "We are honored to receive this award recognizing our efforts with veterans. With more than one-quarter of G4S Secure Solutions employees possessing a military background, our company ties its success directly to the success of the veterans in its ranks."
