Richmond, VA – June 16, 2022 – Keeping Current Matters is thrilled to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work for the 7th consecutive year. The Great Place to Work Certification recognizes employers who create an outstanding employee experience. This prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at KCM.
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Keeping Current Matters is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
This year, 95% of KCM employees said it’s a great place to work—compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company. Based on employee comments from the Great Place to Work Trust Index™, the top reasons employees love working at KCM are the culture, people, and company values.
“At KCM, everything starts with our for-people culture. I’m elated to see this reflected throughout the organization and echoed through this feedback,” says Bill Harney, CEO. “Spend any time at KCM, and you’ll see that this team truly cares about each other. The energy and momentum this creates every day is palpable. I don’t think there’s a more dedicated and talented team out there. I’m just humbled to get to work with this amazing group of people.”
Since 2020, KCM has grown from 21 to 40 employees while expanding company operations, new product development, customer success, and marketing. With aggressive growth goals over the next 5 years, KCM is continuing to grow its Richmond-based team to continue serving the national housing industry. Harney credits KCM’s empowering and trusting culture as the differentiator in attracting amazing talent in this competitive labor market.
“KCM understands that in today’s world, the term “work-life balance” is antiquated and needs to be simply “balance.” We not only ask but expect our employees (aka the Crew) to bring their whole selves to work.” says Beth Frank, KCM’s Strategic Culture Advisor, “In return, the leadership at KCM must be trusting, flexible and caring. I have a tremendous amount of pride to be working with a group of humans who live our core values, dedicate themselves to our Vision, and demonstrate what a positive organizational culture can cultivate for people’s lives.”
KCM believes that finding the right people, not just the right resumes, is the key to building a strong, aligned team. As a result, many of KCM’s employees have started in one role, and built upon their skills to take on other opportunities as the business has grown.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified Great Workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.
