We are delighted to announce that the GSS Superstar of the Month Award for April 2018 goes to…our colleague, Protection Dog Handler – Christine Lawlor.

Christine, who was worked for GSS for a couple of years now as a Protection Dog Handler on some of our highest profile client sites in our southern region. With the receipt of this award, she becomes one of the very few to have won the GSS Superstar award on two occasions! We recognised Christine with this award for living our core value of Unity and Teamwork. As well as being regularly described by our clients and our management team as an ‘asset to our company’ Christine went ‘above and beyond’ recently in carrying out emergency first aid to a member of our client Facilities Team, which including administering butterfly stitches to a rather nasty wound and providing calm re-assurance to said member of staff.

Speaking of the award, Regional Operations Director, Kevin Wootton said ‘Christine is one of the safest pair of hands we possess within our field based team. I was involved in initially recruiting Christine but my new role brings me into very regular contact with her and I am seeing first hand the always excellent and always professional contribution she provides to our clients, on the sites she is most active”

The GSS Superstar Award has become an integral agenda item of our Monthly Senior Management Meetings, during which each member of our senior team puts forward a case for nomination. While the debate is constructive (and usually fun), the final selection is never easy, as there are always award-worthy examples given of our team members exceeding the standards expected of them. So, while we can only issue one award each month, we want to sincerely thank all members of our team for their continued support and hard work for our valued clients.
