Program Overview

Recruiting KitWhat You Missed

The war for people is on. Surveys show that finding and keeping good people is one of the top challenges for landscape and lawn care companies and the challenge is now nearing crisis levels as fewer people are making the landscape business a career choice and legislative and regulatory restraints put additional pressures on our industry. Landscape businesses must be equipped with the right tools, systems, processes and practices in order to grow their businesses and fill needed positions within their companies with the best possible talent.

NALP, in conjunction with renowned landscape industry experts from The Harvest Group, dove into a comprehensive overview of the people challenge in our industry and taught the step-by-step system that will enable landscape industry professionals to recruit and retain the right people to achieve sustainable success for their business.
