Dennis primarily works in the main lobby area of a hospital in Eastern Ontario, and is known for his incredible dedication to the patients, staff and visitors. Additionally, every year at Christmas, he takes time off to dress up as Santa and visits the kids at another hospital in the area. He doesn’t advertise what he’s doing and never asks for or expects recognition. Dennis is one of the many silent heroes across Canada working to protect the public on behalf of G4S and its customers.
“The greatest strength of any organization lies in its people, and G4S Canada has some of the most outstanding people in the security industry,” the company noted in a statement. G4S employs over 10,000 people nationally, and throughout the year, G4S Canada recognizes employee achievements both formally and informally. “Every day we encounter stories of bravery; someone who went out of their way to help someone else in an emergency.”
In the past year, G4S employees have helped people after accidents, performed first aid for injured people, and even helped deliver babies while on duty. These acts are acknowledged and employees are recognized for their efforts made with respect to the preservation and promotion of a human life.
Recently, the 2013 Summit Awards celebrated the commitment to service and excellence of G4S’ staff. Each of the award winners has remarkable story to tell. In addition to Dennis’ Award, Awards were given in the following categories: Supervisor of the Year, Outstanding Customer Service, Health and Safety, Employee Relations, Administrator of the Year, Outstanding Operations, Screener of the Year, Service Delivery Manager of the Year, Extra Mile Awards (3), President’s Award for Business Development and President’s Award for Branch Operations.
Congratulations to everyone!
