  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) May 02, 2009 - Tree Service in Orlando is staffed by a work force largely devoid of middle class values, including that of putting aside a percentage of ongoing earnings for retirement. And given that most employment in this industry requires much physical stamina (including heavy lifting, the heat of the Orlando sun, long hours, the fatigue of climbing trees), many tree workers are forced to retire in their early fifties whether or not they've saved for it. So, as a means of caring for their employees and families, Tree Work Now is launching this program to assist in building nest eggs for the future.

    Tree Work Now's tree trimming and tree removal crews are already among the best from Daytona to Orlando, and this initiative only reinforces the security and extends the tenure of their employees. Building stable teams devoid of constant transition is important to the quality of the work that tree trimming and tree removal crews perform. Since the work is so dangerous and involves a high level of complexity to be performed safely, it is necessary to develop a deep level of trust among the crew members as they entrust their very lives to each other on a daily basis. Thus, benefits like the one described herein are important factors in improving job satisfaction, which in turn increases the likelihood of these highly skilled teams staying together longer and working together more smoothly as they develop systems and patterns of safe operation.

    Similar to retention is the issue of attracting quality talent. Like any company which is seeking to raise the standard in their industry, Tree Work Now seeks to be the tree service Orlando employer of choice. This company believes that it will be able to continue providing superior professionalism and customer service only as it continues to bring on exceptional talent. The maxim "you're only as good as your people" holds true. And, of course, the ownership of Tree Work Now understands that the end goal is to multiply its already impressive group of exceedingly happy and loyal customers.

    Returning to the details of this retirement savings plan, the custodial of this SIMPLE Plan (a 401k equivalent) is Vanguard, the world leader in low cost investing. Employees are able to set their salary deferrals at either a percentage or dollar amount of their choosing, then invest in a variety of Vanguard's excellent mutual fund offerings. The payroll company (Paychex) will make the salary deductions and Tree Work Now will make monthly matching contributions in order to encourage employee participation and bolster employee retirement savings.
