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!
