A small business in Christchurch has been given a very large award.
Beaver Trees and landscaping has been judged one of the best small businesses in the world.
Hanging from trees wielding sharp tools is dangerous work but the fact these guys get so much enjoyment from it is one of the reasons they havve been judged the best small business under fifty employees in the world.
Bryce Robb has grown Beaver Trees over more than a decade and two years ago branched out into landscaping. He says the key to success is investing in staff.
“We set goals for them every six months and not just goals within the company, it’s also goals in their own personal lives.”
The tree maintenance company even bloomed during the recession.
“The key things are we have a lot of fun, we base our business around having a strong culture, we don’t employ people that don’t fit into the culture.”
US-based business mentors, Action Business Coaching ran the awards, their trophies are created by the same company that makes the Oscars.
Beaver Trees stood out for its fiscal achievements, customer service and culture.
And the team hopes there are more awards in their future. They are beavering away on plans for the biggest garden of next year’s Ellerslie Garden Show.
