GUEST SPEAKER TODD PUGH, CEO and Founder Enviroscapes
At fourteen, owner Todd E. Pugh began mowing lawns to earn spending money and begin saving for college. After graduating from The Ohio State University, he incorporated his growing business and he renamed it Enviroscapes. Strong business values and ethics have enabled Enviroscapes to grow from its first $5.00 per week mowing client into a multi-million dollar landscape company that ranks in the top 2% of all landscape companies nationwide. Enviroscapes is known nationwide by its peers for award winning landscapes and being a trend setter in LEAN business practices.
Sponsorship Opportunities are now available for the 2019/2020 Meeting Schedule. For more information, call the OLA Offices at 440.717.0002, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOUT ENVIROSCAPES Enviroscapes mission is to build a World Class Organization by creating a culture that fosters growth for landscape professionals, stimulates innovation and, as a result, delivers World Class Landscape Services. Their team consists of passionate people who love working outdoors and love the Landscape & Snow Business. Enviroscapes performs work out of 6 Service Locations (Akron, Austintown, Boardman, Canton, Louisville and Columbus), employing 250 team members in peak season and 150 year round. They have a diverse book of business with revenues coming from 70% Commercial Maintenance and Snow and Ice Removal, 20% Design/Bid Build and 10% Utility Service Work. The company’s focus is to have fewer clients, with higher revenue from each, so a better level of service can be provided.
Onboarding: A Key to Employee Attraction & Retention Enviroscapes hit a wall 3 years ago. They struggled to recruit and retain the front-line employees necessary to operate. The results were slowed growth, smaller profits, and most importantly an over-worked, over-whelmed, burnt-out management staff. With the future growth of a good business in jeapardy, they recognized the need to change.
At that moment, Enviroscapes began focusing on the personnel side of the business, visualizing what they wanted their team and culture to look like. They changed thier philosophy to “Team first - Client second,” knowing that if they built a great team, they would undoubtably be able to take care of their clients. 3 years later, through dedication and discipline, Enviroscapes - for the first time - had a waiting list of new hires.
CEO and Founder, Todd Pugh, will share some of the tools that were developed throughout this process, including specifics related to their onboarding process. You will be able to take away strategies and tools that you can put to work in your company.
