What Employee Ownership Means for our Customers
By Jason Mortvedt, Kinzler Construction Services Marketing Director
Years ago, I had a terrible experience with movers wreaking havok on my furniture while moving it out of my house. As they tossed around my personal belongings, I wondered how these “paid professionals” could care so little in their handling of my stuff. The answer is simple: ownership.
When you own something, you treat it differently. You form a psychological connection that creates a feeling of responsibility. My movers didn’t have any attachment to the objects they were moving, they were just executing the task of moving objects.
You may have heard that Kinzler Construction Services recently became an employee-owned company. We think that makes a difference to our customers and prospective customers in several very important ways.
- Empowered Employees: Employee ownership empowers employees. Our employee-owners know that their actions affect their customers, and ultimately, the success of our company, and they take ownership of their decisions. In short, your success is their success.
- Creative Problem-Solving: Empowered employee-owners are motivated to pursue creative ideas that streamline processes, improve service and reduce costs.
- Preservation of Company Culture: Employee ownership gives us the opportunity to reward our employees for their commitment and hard work and helps us to attract and retain talented people. It also ensures that Kinzler Construction Services retains its independence in the future and preserves the culture that has made us so successful for more than three decades.
- Increased Investment: The Employee Stock Ownership structure allows us to re-invest in leading-edge technology and huge operational capacity so we have the capability to partner on your project large or small. We also invest in our employees and the local communities where they live and work.
Our employee-owners have skin in the game which translates to industry-leading customer service. We hope you’ll contact us about partnering on your next project.
