Being An Owner

As you no doubt have already noticed, Kennedy/Jenks is an employee-owned firm. We’re proud of that so we mention it as often as we can. But what does that mean to you, as a future owner of Kennedy/Jenks?

First and foremost, it entails responsibility. This firm succeeds — or fails — with the success of failure of each of its many owners. As an owner, you must make every decision as though your career and your company depended on it; spend every dollar as though it was your own; and listen to and collaborate with all of your fellow owners.

It also means that you have a voice, and that you will be listened to.  This is what an employee-owned firm is all about.

As owners, we share a pact to do everything in our power to meet our commitments and goals to ensure our firm’s success. We trust our colleagues to do their part and together, we share the results of financially good and not so good years. We reap our rewards through spot bonuses, training, incentive compensation, salary increases and generous benefits.

Equally important to most of us are the people we work with and knowing that our contributions, whether as an individual or as a team, matter and make a difference to the firm, clients, and communities. This is what an employee-owned firm is all about.
