Engaged Employees

Employee Attraction & Retention

As a provider of environmental services, attracting and retaining top talent is critical to our success. We actively recruit candidates who share our commitment to advance the green industry. While our industry faces challenges of seasonal employment and high average turnover, our structure as an employee-owned company enables our talented employees to invest in us as we invest in them.

Management Approach

103-1, 103-2, 103-3

Our people are the key to our success and sustainability as a company. We aim to engage and inspire our employees every day, providing them education and development opportunities to help them grow personally and professionally. Employee ownership has differentiated Davey in our industry and enables us to provide superior tree, landscape, and environmental service to our clients.

To sustain our growth, we must invest in our employees’ personal and professional development. For nearly 140 years, employee education has been foundational to our success, equipping each employee with the tools he or she needs to deliver the best possible care to our clients.

As part of the company’s work to become more inclusive, live out our values, and achieve long-term recruitment and retention goals, Davey chose to put an additional emphasis on justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) in 2021.
