Details About Episode – How to Attract and Retain Top Talent in Landscaping

When we work with landscaping companies, the single biggest challenge we hear from business owners apart from getting the right target customer inquiries for their services and locations is always about recruitment and staffing.

Landscaping in Canada is seasonal. This seasonality brings inherent challenges with staffing. Your team could be anywhere from 10-50% of its peak numbers in the off-season. During the busy late spring, summer and early fall months, you might be hiring constantly to keep up with demand. If you have a lot of churn in your staff, this creates more work, more onboarding, and more lost hours of time and investment if they leave.

If you do snow and ice management, this may be a big earner for you in the winter months and a way to keep some of your staff on the books, however, the unpredictability and intense nature of the Canadian winter brings high staff demands.
So, what is the answer to making all these challenges become less stressful or more manageable?
