AmericanHort Seeks Labor Insight

AmericanHort is looking for industry members to take a Nursery and Greenhouse Employment Survey, in partnership with the the University of California-Davis and Arizona State University.

Craig Regelbrugge, executive vice president, advocacy, research, and industry relations, and Sara Neagu-Reed, director, advocacy and government affairs, said that the purpose of this survey is to collect information about how growers are adapting to ongoing labor challenges. The data and insights from the study will be used to inform participants, leaders and policymakers about how workforce challenges are affecting nursery and greenhouse operations throughout the country.

Survey results will be an important tool for AmericanHort’s industry advocacy efforts. The findings will help AmericanHort educate key decision influencers in Congress and the administration on our industry’s ongoing workforce challenges, like employee shortages, turnover and gaps in access to worker visa programs. The goal? Solutions to help address these challenges.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete, and all responses will remain anonymous and confidential. The data will be reported in aggregate.

The survey will be open until Friday, Aug. 19.
