Landscape Forms Celebrates Great Place to Work Certification™ Again for 2022-2023
Landscape Forms, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of premium site furniture, structure, LED lighting, and accessories, is proud to announce that the company has again earned a Great Place to Work Certification™, its fourth in a row.
Great Place to Work Certification™ is recognized worldwide by employees and employers alike and is the global benchmark for identifying outstanding employee experiences.
“For more than 50 years, Landscape Forms has remained extraordinarily committed to our team members, our communities, and the natural environment. This certification is a proud moment and validation of all of our efforts related to our people,” says Landscape Forms Chief Executive Officer, Margie Simmons. “Our commitment is integrated into our identity and purpose. Caring for team members and being good stewards of the environment makes sense for a business whose stated purpose is to enhance people’s experience in the outdoors.”
According to Jim Marshall, Landscape Forms Vice President of Culture, there are many aspects to the company’s culture that make it unique, but a commitment to a high level of participation and particularly developing a sense of autonomy through flexible scheduling are key drivers of the company’s workplace success.
“We have a longstanding commitment to participation and participative management,’” Marshall describes. “We’re always working to evolve our culture and our organization, and I think these efforts show. We want to empower people to make the decisions that are right for themselves and for their families. That’s how our founder, John Chipman Sr., led the company, and that continues to inspire us today.”
