The American Public Gardens Association Garden Benchmarking platform is now open for data entry for the most recent fiscal year. In order to make the results as useful as possible for you and your fellow garden professionals, we need all of our members to participate.
"The power of numbers is dramatic. You can talk to someone for two hours when one number can tell the whole story." - Jane O. MacLeod, President and CEO, Cheekwood Estate and Gardens
Join Association Executive Director Casey Sclar for a Garden Benchmarking "How To" webinar on Friday, July 13 at 1:30 EDT.
Learn how to not just enter data but use it to benefit your garden.
Webinar will cover Garden Benchmarking and Compensation & Benefits.
ENTER YOUR DATA
"Benchmarking shows not only what we're best at, but also where there's room for improvement to help the bottom line... Without Benchmarking, it's a lot more work for a lot more people." - Stephanie Jutila, President and CEO, Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden
Compensation and Benefits Benchmarking
Compare your employees' compensation and benefits packages to your peer gardens
Please note that due to the sensitive nature of the results, only Garden Leaders (CEOs, Executive Directors, Presidents, etc.) and their designees will have access to this data.
Your garden's specific data is private and confidential -
it is never shared with anyone. All shared results are shown as aggregate data and a minimum of five gardens are needed for any aggregate.
