Arbor-Nomics Turf, a leading provider of residential lawn and ornamental tree and shrub care in Atlanta and surrounding areas, is very pleased to announce that it is among the 101 Best and Brightest™ Companies to Work for in Atlanta. The award goes to organizations that cultivate employee enrichment and satisfaction.
“When we started out 35 years ago,” says owner Richard Bare, “we were the David in the lawn care industry, competing against a huge, national Goliath. We had to create a culture that allowed our field people to take ownership of their routes and their customers, and where they could feel in control.”
The company, whose tagline is, “More than treatments, we apply knowledge,” invests in training, certification, and ongoing education for all of its service technicians who consistently serve the same customers on their dedicated routes. Currently, Arbor-Nomics Service technicians have an average of six years with the company.
“Today,” continues Bare, “the Goliath has been bought and sold a few times and has a high employee turnover rate, along with declining customer retention. Meanwhile, we are healthy and thriving. It goes to show the importance of finding great people, training them well, setting realistic goals, and then letting them do their jobs with minimal interference. We’re honored to be recognized as that kind of company.”
Best and Brightest award winners are selected based on an employee and company-HR survey. Each assessment tool measures variables such as:
- Compensation and benefits
- Work-life balance
- Employee development, engagement, and retention
- Recognition of individual and team achievements
- Strategic company performance
