Why Kyana, Bethlehem, and ASR?

Kyana is a family owned business and our employees are just like family and we mean that in a good way, not the weird uncle in the corner or the aunt who likes to pinch your cheeks kind of a way. Sure, we could have pictures of young hip people pointing at interesting things on a board (not real employees), or pictures of the food and fun we have around here (real food, real fun), and that might be enough to make you want to work here (Yes, we really do have food and fun around here and we like to think we are young and hip. Check out our Facebook page).

So why work here? Travis Bradberry captures it best:

"More than half of people who leave their jobs do so because of their relationship with their boss. Smart companies make certain their managers know how to balance being professional with being human. These are the bosses who celebrate an employee's success, empathize with those going through hard times, and challenge people, even when it hurts." -Travis Bradberry

We must be doing something right. The average tenure for our employees is double the national average and this includes all positions within Kyana. We are small enough to know everyone by first name, and large enough to pursue any business opportunity. In a world of apathy and declining customer satisfaction, Kyana still treats its customers and employees as if they are family. And it shows... we have many customers that have been with us for over 30 years.

You will grow and be challenged at Kyana. Are you ready to accept the challenge and become part of the family?
