Haygrove SA 2021
It is amazing how quickly 2021 has flown by! They say the harder you work the quicker time goes. This year was all about our business successfully navigating around all the challenges that were thrown at us. It was about our fantastic team and our good systems being tested to the limit. It was about Haygrove coming out on top. Yes, we could have done some things better. And yes, we made mistakes. But we now have a team that uses those mistakes to improve.
Haygrove is very fortunate to be supplying the high value horticultural sector that is thriving. As a result we are fortunate to have had a good year and the company is growing. This means there are opportunities for our over 120 permanent staff to be assured of personal growth within Haygrove. This, after all, is why we are in business. One of this year’s success stories is about the numerous internal promotions of fantastic staff. Well done to all those who were promoted, but also, to those leaders that trained them, gave them the correct skills to develop, and most importantly of all, identified the potential in those individuals.
In 2021 I have received many messages from satisfied customers thanking Haygrove for good service and staff that have impressed them by going beyond their expectations. It seems we are really living up to our motto of “The Complete Customer Experience”!
This year we democratically elected the employee of the year and team of the year. We asked all staff to nominate colleagues who stood out, went beyond what was expected of them, and represented our company’s ethos. The results demonstrated how well our Haygrove team is coming together and how leadership skills are developing in our company. There were a lot of cross departmental nominations indicating respect for the part others play in creating a successful product. There were also a few instances where a manager was nominating someone in their team and that same nominated person was nominating their manager! An example of a phenomenal team!
Here are a few fun facts from Haygrove’s last 12 months:

I wish all our staff, all our suppliers and all our customers a wonderful Christmas. I hope you all have a fantastic time with friends and family and enjoy a well-deserved break.
I am sure Haygrove will have a fantastic year next year in 2022 and therefore make a positive impact on all of you!
