CULTURE

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

BUILDING EACH OTHER

This is Us!

At KL&A, we are designers passionate about what we build. We build trust, partnerships, careers, families, and communities by being integrated in all we do. Our strength is connecting people and making ideas a reality. Our success is hiring great people and allowing them to do great things – together.

Carbondale office, I

                                   get to ride my bike to work and trail run out the door in the summer and then ski at world-class resorts in the winter.  All while working on fascinating projects and with the resources of a large firm at my disposal.  Plus, there’s no traffic!

                                   I enjoy having the

                                   freedom to implement

                                        change in the organization

and see others at all levels making similar impacts on the way we do things. It’s also great to see some of my best friends at work every day, not many people can say that about their job.

                                                            Buffalo is great 

                                                       because we get to

                                                   work on diverse and

                             interesting projects like the other KL&A offices, and we get to live in a wonderful small town with the Big Horn Mountains less than 10 minutes from town.

DIVERSITY EQUITY

INCLUSION

At KL&A, we are working hard to go beyond good intentions and be a part of change. By bringing together a team of employees and hiring a diversity consultant, we are focused on making sure we have a place of inclusion that allows everyone to be their best selves, bring unique ideas and individual perspectives, and flourish. It is the diversity of thought and experiences that make up our whole.

FAMILY ORIENTED

 The KL&A family is our employees and their spouses, partners, children, dogs, cats – you get it! We understand life happens outside office walls. There are school plays to attend, bikes to ride, and doctors to visit. Families are our backbone and our priority, we support and celebrate each other at work and after hours!

COACHING

At KL&A, we have developed a feedback system that goes beyond employee reviews. We think feedback needs to happen often and from multiple sources. Along with a supervisor and project managers, everyone has a coach to help set goals and navigate their career. Aligning people with their strengths and talents is critical for job satisfaction and success.

 

We use the DiSC and Strengthsfinder assessments to assist coaching our employees and assemble teams. Introspection is a corporate value and we spend a lot of energy pondering who we are, what we are doing, and why we are doing it!

We PlAY HARD

Being a part of KL&A is not only work, it's a lifestyle, one that we are determined to make fun. We have weekly game nights, and trivia, we also have bar cart fridays, which introduces everyone to their new favorite drink. We have an annual ski day, and so much more to make KL&A a place we all look forward to going to every day.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

We nurture our team members' spirit of service and giving through our community outreach programs. Whether it's volunteering our time in our communities, our services through Habitat for Humanity, or our knowledge to future generations through Box City events; KL&A is working to make our world a brighter and better place starting first with our own communities.
