GMS Employee of the Year awarded to unsuspecting apprentice

GMS Employee AwardGMS Group of Companies have announced the winner of their prestigious Employee of the Year award. Out of a possible 20 employees at GMS headquarters in Bromsgrove, 17 year old apprentice Megan Winup has taken home the prize.

Megan started the apprenticeship at GMS in July 2015, two weeks after finishing her GCSEs where she was awarded B-C grades in 10 subjects. She is currently completing the 2 year apprenticeship at Dudley College, whilst also gaining Level’s 2 and 3 NVQ in Business Administration.

Despite being well qualified, Megan could not believe it when she handed the award: “When I was awarded Employee of the Year, I was so shocked. I did not expect it at all!” But GMS owner Neil Male noted that her hard working attitude and determination, teamed with an ability to complete tasks quickly and to a high standard, made the decision easy. “Megan is a wonderful person to have on our team. She has a positive impact on everything she works on and is always willing to take on new tasks,” Neil explains.

As an apprentice, Megan has had the opportunity to work across the HR, Legal, Property and Operations departments. “I would say I most enjoy working in HR as I like the daily challenges the department faces. I also hope to be exposed to Sales and Marketing in the future, as this is an area of great interest to me. GMS encourage me to carve my own path by gaining experience across the board and then honing the skills I excel in.”

GMS Group of Companies provide services across a wide range of sectors including utilities, financial, automotive, commercial, industrial, education and public. For more information, contact can be made by calling 01527 889180 or visiting their website at
