G4S one of the top employers in Africa 2018

November 2017 News

For the sixth consecutive year, G4S has been certified by the Top Employer Institute as a Top Employer Africa 2018, solidifying the company’s commitment to be a responsible and sustainable employer that empowers and develops its employees to contribute towards G4S’s overall achievements.

G4S is the only private security company in Africa that has ever been awarded Top Employer certification. This is a remarkable triumph, particularly as the company has been awarded 9 certifications in 2013, 11 certifications in 2014 and 2015, 13 certifications in 2016, 2017 and now again in 2018. Independent research by the Top Employers Institute shows the company looks after its people exceptionally well, offering employees an engaging and safe working environment where their contributions are valued.

The Top Employers endorsement recognises top employers through a stringent certification process evaluating internal HR policies and procedures and is awarded to companies that achieve the highest standards of excellence in employee conditions. The annual international research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, acknowledges leading employers around the world.

Only organisations that achieve certification in at least five countries within the region deserve the special Top Employers Africa 2018 recognition. G4S has been certified in 13 countries, including Botswana, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, DRC, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia – an accolade that makes G4S stand out in the exclusive and internationally renowned community of Top Employers in Africa.

Stanley Blyth, regional HR director, G4S Africa says: “With a staff complement of over 111 000 people in Africa, we are the largest private security employer on the continent. G4S therefore takes great pride in the creativity and diversity of our talented people and strives to create a safe and value-driven environment that provides opportunities for growth, innovation and a sustainable future for all.”

Crucial to the Top Employers process is that participating companies must meet the required high standard in the research in order to achieve the certification. The Top Employers Institute assessed G4S’s people practices on the following criteria: Talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits, and culture. The independent research has verified G4S’s outstanding employee conditions in all certified countries. This earned G4S Africa a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers.
