By Courtney Emra, Lead Customer Service/Sales Assistant at Kenton Brothers
At Kenton Brothers, we take pride in being customer focused as well as employee focused. Both of these are key Core Values. We use the acronym “SPICED ICE” to identify our values. The C and E in “ICE” stand for Customer Focus and Employee Focus.
One of the ways we focus on our employees is creating opportunities to get together outside of work. We provide lots of team-oriented activities; including happy hours, hot dog crawls, Pickleball tournaments and more. And the cherry on top is when we get to celebrate tiny new additions to our extended KB Family.
Recently, we organized a company-wide family picnic!
We decided to go to Longview Lake and reserved Shelter #11. Longview Lake is just minutes from south Kansas City and has almost 1,000 beautiful acres of wide open spaces that are perfect for gatherings. They also have 14 shelters you can reserve and tons of amenities.
Gene Ross grilled up hotdogs and burgers, and staff members brought side dishes/desserts in true potluck form. Michelle Fenton brought some fun yard games and many others brought their furry family members. Everyone had a great time!
