Overview Oak View Landscapes is growing as a business within a sector where there is an acute skills shortage and it has become even more important to invest in, retain and develop all staff for the future. The firm believes staff are its greatest asset and rewards and recognises them wherever possible. Oak View says that without its staff, and their dedication and loyalty, it would not be one of the most respected landscape contractors in its region. It supports all employees in their career development, with more than 75% of staff holding formal qualifications in landscaping and amenity horticulture. The firm has its own apprenticeship scheme, which is most rewarding as it introduces, trains and develops young people who will be its future stars. Oak View does not believe in working to minimums and has ensured that it has an employee benefits package in place that, together with the company culture and remuneration, helps it to recruit, engage, develop and retain the best candidates throughout the industry.
