About Us

Social Engagement

The partners and administrators of Flower Village deeply believe in the wellbeing of our employees. Our roses are the result of amazing teamwork, knowledge, training and commitment. To meet this objective, our personnel must be motivated, happy, without concern and joyful at work.

We have facilities that offer services geared toward the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of basic illnesses. We offer medical, dental and pediatric care free of charge for our work team. Additionally, we have free pediatric services for the children of our workers who are under 15 years of age.

We also support the surrounding community, and as such medical and dental services are available to children and adults from the communities of Itulcachi and Cocha for a small fee of three dollars per visit. Additionally, the company pays for a large part of the balanced meals of our employees during work hours. Transportation is also provided for workers when required.

Our personnel are constantly undergoing training at the “Flower Village School.” Our continuous training model is headed up by the human resources department.
