Taking Recognition by Storm With Longacres

Longacres spans six centres in the UK, offering first-class customer service and a wide range of products and services. From plants, flowers, and pots to furniture, gifts, and food, Longacres provides high-quality items across the board as well as services such as floristry and a plant finder. Opening in 1979, the leading garden centres have expanded from a small nursery into a widely favoured choice in communities across the UK.

Wendy Menking, says, “Showing our people that they are valued is incredibly important, not just in terms of recognising their hard work but also through supporting their wellbeing outside of work. We care about the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of our people, and Each Person gives us the opportunity to look out for all elements of our employees’ lives. Recognising people in multiple ways means they can come into work feeling positive, ready, and supported.”

Matt Norbury, CEO and Founder of Each Person said, “The importance of building a positive work environment supported by recognition is often overlooked, resulting in high turnover rates and unhappy employees.We are over the moon to be supporting Longacres in taking their leap into effectively recognising employees. I hope they will appreciate the ‘Donate a Tree’ feature on the Dashboard and feel the benefits of knowing they are doing their bit to help the planet while building each other up through recognition.”
