[TULSA, OK] June 19 —Bartlesville Chamber member, LawnAmerica is proud to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious designation of Landscape Industry Accredited Company by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). This is the first such designation for any landscape company in Oklahoma, and only the seventh accreditation awarded in the nation.
While there are over 14,000 professionals who’ve earned the individual NALP certification, LawnAmerica became one of only seven professional organizations to earn the company accreditation designation by demonstrating their commitment to customer satisfaction through superior business, financial and ethical standards. They were also awarded the accreditation for employing Landscape Industry Certified staff who are known across the lawn care field for providing the best customer experience.
Landscape Industry Accredited Companies receive this special recognition for:
- Employing at least 10% Landscape Industry Certified staff including at least one person on staff who holds the designation Landscape Industry Certified Staff Manager,
- Participating in a national safety program,
- Conducting responsible and ethical business practices, and
- Demonstrating customer excellence.
“We are proud to be recognized for our efforts to continually improve not only our company but the lawn care industry in general,” says Benjamin Allen, Chief Operating Officer, and 17 year employee of LawnAmerica. “This designation from NALP is just another way that LawnAmerica is able to prove our commitment to training, education, ethical business practices, and superb customer service.”
