We are proud to share the news and announce that Ground Control has been shortlisted for Employer of the Year at the Pro Landscaper Business Awards.

Set to take place in Old Billingsgate in London on 21st April 2023, the awards aim to “highlight how well businesses operate their processes, staff training, health and safety records and consistently achieve positive customer feedback.”

    As part of our Ground Control culture, we communicate with, develop, and recognise the achievements of our people, all with the purpose of enabling great personnel at every level.

Jason Knights, Managing Director, added:

As an employer, we aim to harness the enthusiasm of our employees, support their development, and enable a work-life balance for them to succeed personally and professionally. We have taken initiatives to provide a base of financial and well-being support so our people know that should the worst happen, we are here for them, and we are proud to see this reconigised by the Pro Landscaper Business Awards.
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 his shortlisting has come on the back of our ‘world-class’ status for employee engagement in the 2022 Best Companies results.

In 2022, Ground Control was certified B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, as having met rigorous social and environmental standards which represent its commitment to sustainable goals ahead of profit. This demonstrates how Ground Control has adopted the B Corp ethos of using “business as a force for good” for everyone.
