Squire’s employees make a difference

Martin comes out top as garden centre group recognise outstanding staff


MAKING a difference counts at Squire’s Garden Centres and the winners of their monthly employee recognition scheme have just been rewarded by the company.

The 2018 winners were thanked by the management team at a special lunch held at Squire’s Badshot Lea outlet in Surrey, where they were each presented with a gift and the overall champion named as Martin Relf, nursery manager at the West Horsley garden centre.
Each month team members at Squire’s 15 centres in Surrey, West Sussex, and Middlesex are nominated by peers or customers for coming up with a great idea, offering outstanding customer service, going over and above normal duties, or thinking of an initiative that has grown or inspired the company, with an individual or group selected by a panel for making a difference to the business.

Squire’s chairman Sarah Squire said: “Martin was chosen as the overall winner of our Made A Difference scheme as he always goes above and beyond the call of duty.
“He ensures our plant show in West Horsley runs smoothly by clearing all the space in the large glasshouse, arranging delivery times with suppliers, and helping them set up on the day.
“He has come in on his day off and comes in extra early to make sure that everything goes to plan – he does an amazing job, not just for the centre, but he also gives professional and efficient service to our suppliers, who always comment on how well the day is run and how welcoming Squire’s are.
“All our 2018 winners are great ambassadors for the company and I’d like to thank them for their commitment, hard work and enthusiasm.”
