CONGRATS / G4S Secure Solutions Named as a Top Veteran-Friendly Company

Got a resume? Send it to us.

JUPITER, Florida /PRNewswire/ — G4S, America’s leading security company, has been named by U.S. Veterans Magazine as a 2014 Top Veteran-Friendly Company. It is the fourth time this year that G4S has been recognized for its focus on veterans’ employment.

Earlier, G4S was named a G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer and a CivilianJobs.com Most Valuable Employer (MVE) for Military. The U.S. Department of Defense has also presented G4S with its Patriot award.

Twenty-five percent of G4S employees are veterans, working in all sections of the company from entry level roles to senior management.

"Today’s announcement goes beyond reporting employment numbers," said Drew Levine, President of G4S, North America. "It speaks to our focus on providing the best-trained security officers and creating a culture of employees who are highly dedicated to our clients’ safety and security."

In 2013, G4S achieved its goal of hiring more than 6,000 returning veterans and their family members, as part of its ongoing commitment to the White House’s ‘Joining Forces’ Program.

"G4S is proud our employment programs are built upon the superior skills and training of our veterans," said Geoff Gerks, G4S Senior Vice President Corporate Human Resources. "But hiring veterans is only part of the picture. Strong employee retention and promotion programs mean our customers benefit from consistent G4S service."

G4S also supports veterans who need flexible employment opportunities because they are part of the National Guard or Military Reserves. Earlier this year, G4S was recognized by the Department of Defense and its Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Program.

Arrgh!! Top 20 MOST ANNOYING Buzzwords and Phrases in the Workplace

"Dynamic," "Deep Dive" and "Leverage" Among Most Overused Buzzwords

MENLO PARK, California /PRNewswire/ — While today’s workplace is awash with buzzwords and cliches, certain terms and phrases are more common ~ and grating ~ than others, according to an Accountemps survey of human resources (HR) managers. "Dynamic," "deep dive" and "leverage" were among the most overused and annoying business buzzwords cited by those polled.

The survey was developed by Accountemps, the world’s first and largest specialized staffing service for temporary accounting, finance and bookkeeping professionals. It was conducted by an independent research firm and is based on interviews with more than 600 HR managers at U.S. and Canadian companies with 20 or more employees.

"Clarity is still king when communicating in the workplace," said Bill Driscoll, New England district president of Accountemps. "Jargon tends to confuse, not clarify. It’s generally best to avoid the tired cliches and trendy buzzwords in favor of clear, straightforward language."

Managers were asked, "What is the most annoying or overused phrase or buzzword in the workplace today?" Their responses included:

++ "Out of pocket"
++ "Deep dive"
++ "Forward-thinking"
++ "Dynamic"
++ "Let me get back to you."
++ "Pick your brain"
++ "Employee engagement"
++ "LOL"

In what may be a sign of both employee burnout and improved job prospects, some of the phrases suggest workers now feel more comfortable venting about their workloads and salaries:

++ "It’s not my job."
++ "It’s above my pay grade."
++ "When am I going to get a raise?"
++ "I am overwhelmed."
++ "Crunch time"

Some buzzwords simply refuse to go away. These well-worn words and sayings also were cited in similar Accountemps surveys conducted in 2004 and 2009:

++ "Win-win"
++ "Value-added"
++ "Think outside the box."
++ "Leverage"
++ "At the end of the day"
++ "Circle back"
++ "Synergy"

About Accountemps

Accountemps, a Robert Half company, is the world’s first and largest specialized staffing service for temporary accounting, finance and bookkeeping professionals. The staffing firm has more than 340 offices worldwide. More resources, including online job search services and the Accountemps blog, can be found at accountemps.com.
