As one of the premier awards in the landscaping industry, the Pro Landscaper Business Awards aim to ‘recognise and celebrate the greatest companies’ across 17 award categories. At the annual event, on Friday 21st April, Ground Control was awarded ‘Employer of the Year’.

Awards are open to employers in the horticulture sector of any size who have achieved excellence in providing an environment where employees can develop their full potential.

This year, the Employer of the Year award focused on training and development opportunities, and employee retention. Over the last year, as a company certified by B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, Ground Control has been able to showcase a commitment to using “business as a force for good” for everyone, which was further exemplified by the ‘World Class’ status awarded for employee engagement in the 2022 Best Companies results.

On the back of the shortlist announcement, Jason Knights, Managing Director, commented:

Our business is driven to showcase Human Nature At Its Best. We know that our people are imperative to driving this forward through their hard work and specialist knowledge, and are especially proud that this shortlisting has come on the back of our ‘world-class’ status for employee engagement in the 2022 Best Companies results
After the awards ceremony, Jason added:
I’d like to extend a huge congratulations to everyone at Ground Control who make the company a great community to be a part of. I know our talent and HR teams work hard to train, develop and support everyone, and this award is a credit to their hard work.
