Landscape Forms Earns Designation as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ Company
Landscape Forms, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-design LED lighting, site furniture, structure, and accessories, announces its designation as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ Company for 2020 – 2021.
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, with the most rigorous, databased model for quantifying employee experience. For certification in 2020, Great Place to Work required companies to demonstrate their commitment to employees, their community and the environment. “This is a proud moment and an important validation of everyone’s efforts,” says Landscape Forms Chief Executive Officer, Marjorie Simmons, of the designation. “Caring for our team members, our community, and our environment has history and depth at Landscape Forms going back to our founding over fifty years ago. It’s integral to our identity and purpose, and it’s wonderful to be recognized in this way.”
Landscape Forms’ Great Place to Work Certification comes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, an especially trying time for businesses and their communities. Landscape Forms weathered a mandated five-week shutdown with no layoffs or furloughs during that time. Later, as the nation faced protests over racial inequality, Landscape Forms renewed its commitment to maintaining an organization where all people feel welcome, respected and free from discrimination. The company introduced a listening campaign in which all employees are encouraged to voice their thoughts about its corporate culture today, and how to best care for team members and the community moving forward.
“Without a doubt, 2020 has been an unprecedented year for everyone,” adds Simmons. “We took it as a time to live out our values, rise to our challenges, and learn new ways of doing business. The Great Place to Work Certification is a wonderful recognition of our entire team’s commitment to each other, our community and the world around us.”
