G4S is the world’s largest private military and security company, and the third-largerst private employer, trailing only Walmart and FoxConn. Over the last two decades, the industry has boomed as governments increasingly outsource core security and military tasks to private firms. The British company has received widespread condemnation from international humanitarian and labor groups for its recurrent negligence and record of human rights abuse. Through aggressive lobbying and a “revolving door” strategy of recruiting high profile politicians to fill advisory or board positions, G4S has entrenched itself in government, as well as boardrooms, as the go-to company for any military or security task.
