G4S Will Take £57m Management Fee Despite Olympics Security Fiasco

The boss of G4S, the firm at the centre of the Olympics security fiasco, has admitted that not paying staff for training coupled with a failure of his company to keep workers properly informed may have contributed to many staff not bothering to turn up for work.

Nick Buckles has been speaking before MPs on the Commons Home Affairs Committee, where he acknowledged that some staff who had undertaken initial training had been unable to get any answers from G4S about what would happen next. It can only be surmised that such people looked elsewhere for work and failed to tell G4S they wouldn't be working at the Olympics.
