This ‘annual review’ contained a wide range of information about how G4S Welfare to Work supported jobseekers in the South East, Yorkshire and Humber and the North West through the Work Programme – the Government’s flagship scheme for helping long-term unemployed people into employment. The review included case studies of the jobseekers that G4S helped into sustainable employment, the results of the supply chain survey, examples of G4S’s work with local and national employers and feedback from key stakeholders in their three contract areas.
Here are some of the key achievements over the first 12 months of the G4S Work Programme from June 2011 to June 2012:
- G4S and their supply chain worked together to help over 9,000 people into employment, with 82% sustaining that employment
- G4S invested £3.6 million in voluntary sector partners throughout their supply chain
- The work of G4S generated an estimated annualised saving of £54 million to the taxpayer through helping people off benefits and into employment
- G4S supported over 5,000 employers across three contract areas to take on a jobseeker through the Work Programme
