Green Lawn Fertilizing and Green Pest Solutions were featured on the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Best Places to Work list. This is the second year in a row the company has been featured on this prestigious list. The award goes to companies in the greater Philadelphia area who are dedicated to creating a positive work environment for their employees.
“When Green Lawn Fertilizing / Green Pest Solutions was named a Best Place to Work last year it immediately became the honor I was most proud of us achieving. To be named a Best Place to Work for the second year in a row is truly a testament that we are executing at a high level not only for our customers but for our team members as well. We take pride in creating a great environment where our team members can thrive," says President/Owner Matt Jesson.
After being named a Best Place to Work in 2019 the company doubled down on its efforts to enhance the team member experience. Despite rapidly increased healthcare costs across the US, there was a zero dollar increase in team member medical benefits. A new and improved paid time off policy was introduced as well as a new wellness program, enhanced dental plan and benefit communications portal. There was also more than a $1M capital investment made for HQ renovations, new branch buildings in Lindenwold, NJ and Hillsborough, NJ, over 15 new trucks and new equipment.
PBJ Best Place to Work winners were picked for four different staff sizes: 10-50 employees, 51-100 employees, 101-1000 employees and 1001+ employees. Green Lawn Fertilizing / Green Pest Solutions was one of the select 101-1000 employee winners!
The Philadelphia Business Journal’s Best Places to Work list recognizes the best workplace environment created by the very best employers in the Greater Philadelphia area. Driven by employee feedback and voting, the 2020 edition of this prestigious list featured over 80 organizations. In order to qualify for this list, Green Lawn and Green Pest needed over half its team members to complete a ten-minute survey. That quota was hit in a little over a week and by the end of the survey deadline over two thirds of company employees completed the survey. The survey results were completely anonymous, although suffice to say, the overall team member feedback and ratings must have been very positive to land Green Lawn Fertilizing / Green Pest Solutions on the Best Places to Work list for the second year in a row.
Philadelphia Business Journal is an award winning weekly paper and daily web site providing local business news to southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey since 1982. Philadelphia Business Journal is a division of American City Business Journals, the country’s largest publisher of business publications.
Each year Philadelphia Business Journal seeks out the top placed to work throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area. Businesses located in Philadelphia, Chester, Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties were all nominated for this year’s list. Each nominee had to have at least half of their workforce complete the survey to be eligible. Employees were asked to rate their company based on categories of work environment, professional growth, professional development, people and embracing change.
