KB Truman: City Map

Check out what’s new for KB in 2019: Online Chat, Customer Portal, Monthly Events and More!

By Kristen Harper, Controller and HR Manager at Kenton Brothers

Customer AppreciationOne of our most important core values as Kenton Brothers is Customer Focus. We recognize without our customers, there is no KB. We’re taking an aggressive approach to improving our customer service style, implantation and approach in 2019.

Online Chat Feature

One of the ways we have made a new change is through our online chat feature. This allows a customer to provide comments, feedback and ask questions all via live chat at www.kentonbrothers.com. Check it out next time you are on our website!

Customer Portal

We now have a feature where customers can create a log in and get their statements, invoices, receipts, and even pay invoices without having to pick up the phone.

Events

KB is hosting monthly events (see upcoming events on our the KB Events page.) Our goal is to educate, get to know and personally thank our customers. Some of our events provide an opportunity for continuing education credits in our industry. And you can register using EventBrite for any of our upcoming events.

Customer Feedback

We’re now sending out assessments when jobs are completed to get feedback directly from customers so we know where we are getting it right… and what we need to improve.

Employee Training

We’re also going to be providing detailed training over the next year for all employees helping them to see their strengths and weaknesses and helping them to improve in areas of need.

Here at Kenton Brothers, our customers are so important to us. We don’t want to miss a single opportunity to give them the best experience and service possible!

Dance of the Dumpsters

By Kristen Harper, Controller and HR Manager at Kenton Brothers

One chilly, rainy morning I was walking through our beautiful new KB Truman facilities to take out a bag of trash. I made my way to our dock, opened the door to toss the bag in the dumpster and what to my wondering eyes did appear? Our dumpster was gone and our recycling dumpster was knocked over with recyclables scattered amiss….

My first thought… Why in the world would someone steel a trash dumpster? My second thought… Surely no one would take a trash dumpster. Maybe our waste services company took it for some reason. I decided to call them and check this theory out. Well, it was a poor theory. They didn’t come and take it, so who took our dumpster! It was the mystery to be solved.

Thank goodness we’re a top notch security company with only the best security cameras placed strategically “EVERYWHERE” I knew I would have my answer soon. Several people on our staff huddled around a monitor to watch surveillance videos. What we saw was magical.

Due to an unusually high amount of precipitation, the drains behind our facility had backed up. This created a three foot deep lake behind our building. Our two dumpsters performed the most glorious synchronized dance I’ve ever witnessed. It was like a real life version of Fantasia. We were mesmerized and just couldn’t look away.

The answer to where our dumpster went? It was behind the building the entire time… just a little further back than usual. The KB Missing Dumpster mystery has been solved. Please enjoy the amazing “Dance of the Dumpsters”.

 

The KB Family

By Kristen Harper & Kassie Lyons

Here at Kenton Brothers, our coworkers are more than just people we work with.

We’re a family.

The KB FamilyA few months ago, we sent Jeremy Shinneman, one of our technicians, to Colorado for a job. It just so happened that at the same time another technician, Chris Skinner, was in Colorado visiting family. Chris’s family was having a BBQ, and invited Jeremy to join them. Here’s what Jeremy wrote about his experience:

“When you’re sent out of town states away for work, and a fellow co-worker just so happens to be on vacation seeing the in-laws, you go on ahead and invite yourself over to the BBQ! Shake the man of the house’s hand, hug mom, and don’t leave any left overs! Thanks for letting me crash the party brother!!”

This pretty much sums it up that at Kenton Brothers, we value our culture above all else. We spend as much time with each other as we do our own families so we truly work to build and maintain those internal team relationships. We’re not your traditional corporate business… we take the time to get to know each other’s families, hobbies, and share in the ups and downs as a team. We believe this makes us a stronger team!

Just another day, living the KB way. #KBWAY
