The G4S Training Top 125 award was determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs, and how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives.  This year included some of the toughest competition requirements seen by award participants since the program began.
