Artemis Tree Services has scooped Arboriculture Contractor of the Year and Employer of the Year at the Horticulture Week Business Awards. Held at London Marriott Grosvenor Square last month, the ceremony is the biggest pan-industry awards celebration of the UK horticulture industry. Simon N’Jie, Artemis Managing Director, says: “We are delighted that our consistent striving to provide a service which makes us arboriculture company of choice, for both clients and employees, has been acknowledged within the industry with the two awards”.
“We are especially proud”, Simon continued, “as we originally only entered the Arboriculture Contractor of the Year category but Horticulture Week were so impressed with our personnel policies that they themselves put us forward for the Employer of the Year award”.
Artemis Tree Services was appointed as an Arboriculture Association approved contractor in 2013 and, since then, they have expanded from working for small domestic clients to large construction/facilities management projects. Artemis aspires to be associated with quality, professionalism and value for money, and places high importance on keeping clients happy and staff safe: “We are delighted that our industry innovation and staff development have been officially recognised”, stated Simon.
Placing employee retention and development at the heart of the business, Artemis had a 94 per cent staff retention rate last year. They support an arborist apprenticeship scheme and believe that investing in staff builds a happier workforce that can grow and progress within the company. Artemis strives to ensure employee well-being with benefits such as maternity/paternity leave, role diversification, sabbaticals, flexible working, internal awards schemes and corporate team-building days.
