NALP introduces a new event on how to recruit and retain employees

The National Association of Landscape Professionals has partnered with the Harvest Group to bring a new educational experience – The People Academy Live – to Orlando and Dallas this winter.

The People Academy Live – an NALP regional workshop experience – is a two-day intensive learning experience with landscape industry experts from The Harvest Group, who will share a comprehensive, step-by-step system, that will enable landscape industry professionals to recruit and retain the right people.

“We know that finding the right employees – and keeping them – is one of the biggest concerns that landscape and lawn care companies face,” said NALP CEO Sabeena Hickman, CAE. “We are committed to helping our members find solutions to the employee challenge.”

Company owners, managers, and HR professions can attend one of the two events, in:

Orlando, Jan. 31- Feb 2, 2017

Dallas, Feb. 21 – 23, 2017

Registration includes two full days of learning about hiring, training, and retaining quality people; a recruiting tool kit (a $497.00 value); course materials, workbooks and handouts; and an optional employee handbook consultation.


The People Academy Live is approved for Landscape Industry Certified recertification at 1 CEU per hour of instruction attended.

The events are sponsored by Bayer, Caterpillar, John Deere and Landscape Contractors Insurance Services, Inc.
