BrightView Launches Landscape Career Development Program
Go behind the scenes of our crew development program
You’re probably quite familiar with our crew members; in fact, you may even be on a first name basis. Day in and day out, we count on them to deliver dependable, proactive service and consistent quality to help you meet your goals. In appreciation of all they do to grow your success, we want to grow theirs too. With that in mind, we’ve developed BrightPath.
BrightPath is a landscaper development program designed to give our team members opportunities for advancement in their career at BrightView. The program, which is being deployed in a phased approach, provides comprehensive training, coaching, and support, beginning with orientation and onboarding and continuing through promotion to successive levels. The first level of the BrightPath program, Level 1, is currently available to all our new team members. BrightPath’s Level 4 training for Crew Leaders will roll out this winter, with the additional levels to follow.
More than just a career development tool, BrightPath is also an important retention tool — both for our crews and for our relationship with you, the client. Part of providing the best possible service is cultivating the best possible team to serve you. BrightPath recruits top talent and enhances team satisfaction by investing in training our teams and demonstrating that this is more than an hourly job — this is a career.
Among the key program focus areas are:
- Safety: BrightPath demonstrates proper technique, safety best practices, and the importance of personal protective equipment to keep our crews, your property, and everyone who enjoys it safe.
- Client Focus: BrightPath training teaches each team member our quality standards and the importance of delivering consistently excellent service.
- Critical Skills: BrightPath teaches and reinforces key horticultural skills so you can be confident the crew that serves you is knowledgeable in their craft and trained to a consistent standard.
- Productivity: Team members are introduced to our industry-leading production planning principles, ensuring every minute on your property is used with the utmost efficiency.
We consider BrightPath to be an investment that benefits everyone. Engaged team members with a clear path for advancement deliver top notch service and operate conscientiously, which in turn, results in greater satisfaction for you. When you and our team members feel happy and cared for, it makes us happy, too. That’s what we call a win-win-win.
