Oak View Landscapes has received recognition twice in the last week for its employer excellence. Both the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) and Investors in People have awarded the Colchester-based company for its efforts with its employees.
Oak View has received a BALI National Landscape Award 2020 in the category of Employer Excellence – turnover over £2.5m, sponsored by Fresh Horticultural Careers. It has also been announced as a finalist for the Investors in People Awards 2020 in the Employer of the Year Gold 2-49 employees category. Like so many other events, both award events will be going digital this year.
Jakki Jenner, operations director, says: “It’s been a challenging and unsettling year for us all and it is refreshing to receive some upbeat news and recognition for continuous improvements in making the working environment better for our people. We’ll certainly be participating in the digital award ceremonies to celebrate this recognition with other like minded companies.”
Managing director Paul Downer comments: “As a market leading company who always puts its staff first and foremost at the front of our business, I am delighted to receive these acknowledgements of employer excellence on behalf of the whole team. The way each member of staff has responded to the challenges of working through the pandemic makes me incredibly proud to be leading such a loyal dedicated and talented team.”
