One of GEL’s core values is to be genuine & authentic, especially with their own people.  Nowhere could this have been demonstrated more visibly than ‘GELFest’. Held on the 6th July in Gloucestershire, GEL wanted to find a unique way of bringing together all GEL employees and their families who,  have ultimately supported GEL indirectly over the years,especially during the last 18 months of  growth – thus the idea of ‘GELFest’ was born.

Funded entirely by GEL, everyone came together (including some clients) in a beautiful location for a day of relaxation, great live music from five different bands (imagine a mini Glastonbury complete with camping facilities!); great food and of course one or two cocktails from the cocktail bar! Children had a great time running around and could have their faces painted, make balloon animals and play on the bouncy castle – all in a safe environment, whilst their parents relaxed and had some well-deserved fun too!

The atmosphere can only be described as joyous and everywhere you looked people were smiling and genuinely enjoying themselves.  The evening culminated in a super fireworks display with taxis provided to ferry people back to their respective hotels (safety & well-being also a core value!).

Investing in our people is vital and saying thank you and creating an opportunities to celebrate success is a huge part of that.  We value every single member of our GEL family and the contribution they make and are proud of their achievements

 Roll on GELFest 2020!
