The award recognizes G4S' sustained support of National Guard and Reserve service. James Dicks, the ESGR State Chairman for Florida, presented the company with the award.
"Our commitment to the ESGR mission of supportive work environments for service members is strong and we are honored to accept this award," said Drew Levine, President, G4S Secure Solutions in North America. "We do this because it's the right thing to do and because we recognize that no group has contributed to our company's success quite as much as our service members."
Also during the ceremony, Levine recognized Brian Reynolds, G4S Director Veterans Employment and Military Affairs. Levine added: "Brian -- our 'Marine for Life' -- has devoted his career to G4S and his heart and passion to telling veterans and Guard and Reserve members about the amazing career opportunities they will find at G4S."
