Beyond the Bottom Line: Why Investing in People Matters for Landscape Companies

This week on the Hardscape Growth podcast, we talk with Chad Kasten, a seasoned Senior Landscape Designer, as he shares his insights and experiences working with Weller Brothers.

Chad brings a wealth of knowledge to the table, having spent 14 years honing his craft and currently in his 8th season with the company. We delve into Weller Brothers’ journey, from its status as a top landscape company in Sioux Falls to its recent expansion into Rochester, MN.

We explore the empowering culture built on trust and empowerment right from the beginning, enabling team members to take ownership of their work and contribute to the company’s success.

Join us as we uncover the vibrant culture at Weller Brothers, where monthly breakfast celebrations, annual fiestas, golf outings, and Thunder Road adventures foster camaraderie and celebrate team achievements.

From career growth vision discussions to encouraging creativity and flexibility, Weller Brothers takes care of its people and seeks to uplift the entire industry. Chad recounts remarkable stories of team members who have embraced new roles and grown alongside the company, emphasizing the transformative impact of such opportunities.
