Our Employees

Walter Kenney believed that employees are fundamental to the success of business — and we continue to operate our business under this belief.

We provide all of our employees with the opportunity to participate in the business and enhance their professional talents and personal growth. All employees are extensively trained, including OSHA, Image/Pilot Program, and sensitivity training.

We also understand that employees have a unique perspective on our business, and employees are encouraged to share their ideas and suggestions about ways to improve the Company at any time.

This strategy has been successful, proven by how the Company has prospered in an uncertain economy, and because our clients recognize the superior work of our employees.
