A key contributor to our success is our people. They include more than 700 direct employees, and scores of small business owners and their employees who sub-contract to Active Tree Services.
Many of these people have developed long and successful careers as the company has expanded and gained a presence in all states and territories.
People at Active participate in a range of programs and initiatives to ensure we maintain our pre-eminent position in the industry. Careful recruitment and selection plus comprehensive training from entry level through to supervisory and management levels ensures that our employees are equipped to meet the challenges of their roles and work efficiently and safely.
Excellence in operational performance is acknowledged through reward and recognition systems. High potential employees are identified and prepared for future opportunities. Large numbers of operational employees are sponsored by the company to undertake formal qualifications in Certificate III Horticulture/Arboriculture through leading training organisations such as TAFE. An Employee Assistance Program is available to support employees or their immediate families who require counselling for personal issues that may be impacting on their work.
This investment in our people will continue into the future, along with strong support for those who wish to show initiative and contribute to business and productivity improvements. We have a friendly and inclusive culture where people work hard, achieve plenty and have fun along the way.
