LBM119: New- Cultivating a Sustainable Business with More than just a Shovel
If all things are considered equal between you and your competition with regards to service offerings and price, how do you differentiate your company, so customers will give you their business, and recruits will want to work for you.
This seminar is designed to help owners and senior decision makers of landscape design, construction and maintenance companies, gain an overall understanding of how the following 6 INTANGIBLE business pillars impact the bottom line of any organization:
*Organizational Culture
*Productivity
*Employee Engagement
*Strategy
*Processes and Training
*Marketing

Just about anyone can buy a shovel and a truck, but that doesn't build a company that is sustainable. In 1973, 83 per cent of the value of a company was based on its tangible pillars (ex. shovels and trucks) Today, 82 per cent of the value of a company is based on its INTANGIBLE PILLARS. How do you want your company to be valued?
