JUPITER, Fla., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- During a Veterans Day ceremony at G4S' North America headquarters, Mr. Lenny Miller, Vice Chair for the Florida Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), presented the prestigious Seven Seals Award to G4S Secure Solutions North America President Drew Levine and G4S Director, Veterans Employment and Military Affairs Brian Reynolds.
ESGR's Seven Seals Award is the broadest and most inclusive award given by ESGR and is presented at the discretion of the State Chair or by ESGR senior leadership. The Seven Seals Award is presented in recognition of significant organizational achievement, initiative, or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission.
During the presentation of the award, Mr. Miller noted that, "G4S does such a fantastic job of offering jobs to members of the military. They've hired in excess of 25,000 service members over the past several years. We're very proud of them and for them. That's why I'm here to be part of this celebration and to be a part of this great event." (A video of the celebration is included here.)
G4S began actively recruiting military as part of its Custom Protection Officer program. Candidates can qualify to be a CPO with one of the following disciplines, including: military elite forces, military police or career military. Meeting these and other stringent experience and training requirements makes these security officers the best in the business.
While accepting the award, G4S' Reynolds noted: "When the White House started the Joining Forces campaign in 2011, we were one of the first companies to participate because we know it's a win-win proposition. Since then we've hired more than 24,000 veterans and we intend to continue our efforts with the military community."
While speaking during the Veterans Day ceremony, G4S' Levine agreed: "The experience and dedication of our service members is unparalleled. With 26% of our workforce made up of former and current military members, I feel strongly that our company's success is tied to our relationship with service members, and I welcome this opportunity to say thank you."
