plants@work represents the Interior Landscaping Industry as a group, so our influence is greater.
Business Opportunities
New business development opportunities arise from being a member of plants@work. Enquiries from prospective clients come from the plants@work website under "Members Directory" and from plants@work continuously promoting the Benefits of Plants to specifiers. Being part of a network of members there are also opportunities from 'passed-on' jobs.
Training Programme 
plants@work has devised and continue to develop a comprehensive tailored Training Programme for Technicians, Supervisors and Managers to improve the overall standards within our industry. Courses leading to plants@work accreditation are held on a regional basis and have already proved extremely beneficial. Training is available to all, however, plants@work members receive priority booking and significant discounts.
DVD Library 
plants@work have invested in an extensive library of Training DVDs which are only available for members to borrow. Members can then schedule in-house training (to complement plants@work training) without having to purchase expensive Training DVDs. Members may borrow DVDs free of charge.
The plants@work web site represents the industry as a whole and is independent and unbiased. It is a useful source of information for specifiers and allows them to find a Contractor. All plants@work members have their own page on the website and the option of a direct link to their own website.
Annual Awards
plants@work acknowledge that to maintain high standards within our industry we need to recognise and reward quality and excellent workmanship. There are over 14 award categories representing all types of Interior Landscaping Awards which are presented at our Annual Gala Dinner and winners are widely publicised within the industry and the trade press.
New Business Opportunities
plants@work organises many networking opportunities for members to meet one another to discuss business and to socialise. Networking can also lead to new business opportunities and to better relationships between members and suppliers within the industry.
Media Collaboration
plants@work promotes the Interior Landscaping industry to specifiers (Facilities Mangers, Architects and Interior Designers) and the general public, by championing and promoting the use of plants in trade press and other media.
Digital Marketing
plants@work dedicate time to promote the organisation on a number of social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest to spread information about the industry and the benefits of plants. We accept guest blogs from members and other organisations as reciprocal deals.
National Plants at Work Week
This plants@work initiative started in 2013 and is used to publicise the benefits of plants in the workplace. The annual selection of plants@work Office Plant of the Year is announced during this week.
plants@work also uses other 'special days' to our advantage and any other occasions and opportunities as they occur.
