March 16, 2011 – What are more than 7,000 independent garden centre employees doing this
month? Most likely they’re watching the Proven Winners® Certified
iGarden Training video and then taking the online test. March 1st marked
the 10th year that Proven Winners has offered an employee training
program exclusive to independent garden centres with more than 7,000
employees completing the program last year.

The process is simple. Garden centre owners and managers log into the
Proven Winners® site (pwcertified.com) using their Brand Champion id#
and password while indicating how many employees they will have
completing the program. Retailers and their employees can watch the
video as a group, or individually, and then each completes an online
questionnaire. Once everyone has finished the process, the employees
will each receive a free Proven Winners® iGarden t-shirt, and the garden
centre can print out their iGarden Certificate along with a press
release for use with their local media. DVD’s are also available for
large groups, as well as paper copies for those without Internet access
by contacting our main office at 877-865-5818.

Garden centres benefit by having employees who are up-to-date on
industry trends and new plant varieties, while garden centre managers
and owners come away with different merchandising ideas from Judy
Sharpton. Best of all, retailers who complete the iGarden certification
process will find their names listed first on the Proven Winners
retailer locator site, a definite benefit when it is considered how last
year over 600,000 gardeners referred to this resource when looking for
the Proven Winners brand.
