We are excited to announce the 2021 CEA Awards presented by Artemis. The past year has reaffirmed what we at Artemis have always known: not only is the Agricultural Industry essential from the grower to the grocery store, but farmers are strong and resourceful. We are taking the time to recognize those in the industry who have shown innovation, entrepreneurship and those committed to sustainability, energy efficiency and community outreach.
Top Employer Award This award will honor an employer who has created a great workplace environment. The nominee may be a company or an individual who has created initiatives that lead to happier employees and long-term growth retention.
