G4S Welfare to Work believes the Work Programme represents an extraordinary opportunity to increase the effectiveness of welfare-to-work programmes in the UK. The size and scale of these contracts offers successful prime contractors the opportunity to link up existing provision across sectors to provide a more holistic service to jobseekers. For this to be fully realised, G4S are committed to working closely with our stakeholders to build on and develop existing strategic partnerships. G4S values input from strategic organisations at each stage of our delivery model, which is why we regularly invite our strategic partners to work with G4S and help us provide high-quality services to jobseekers.
Engagement with stakeholders needs to happen at different levels from national to community based organisations. G4S has been building stakeholder relationships in the industry for three years and is accelerating this work through our regional teams. Our Work Programme solutions in each area are heavily influenced by the stakeholders that we are talking to, which ensures alignments with existing policy and provision.
Prime contractors on the Work Programme should share the responsibility of driving the economic recovery with regional stakeholders, and this is best achieved if we have close working relationships.
The Work Programme presents an opportunity to link in with other services including health, skills, housing and childcare. G4S work with stakeholders to create diverse supply chains containing organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors.
