Keller Schroeder has earned a stellar reputation for the quality of our work and the value of our contribution to the clients we serve. So what is “it” about us? What makes us stand out in a crowded marketplace of consultants, VARs, and systems integrators? If you will allow me a few lines here to shamelessly brag on our staff, I will offer three key characteristics, cutting across all of our diverse practice groups, which I believe contribute most to the positive impact we make for our clients.
Competency: Our 80+ employee-owners average 20 years of experience in the IT industry. We are an employer of choice who hires and retains really good people who love the field of IT and have been high performers in challenging environments. Our consultants must have strong communication skills and know how to navigate the complexities of large and small business environments.
Humility: As a regionally-focused firm, we cannot afford to approach our clients with a “my way or the highway” mentality. We listen and learn how best to add value for each unique client and project, and we “ask the extra question” to be sure we are not just doing things right, but also doing the right things. The employee-owners you get to know at Keller Schroeder are confident and capable, but not arrogant. We realize that while we have much to offer you, we are only succeeding when we are making you better. It’s about your business.
Ownership: Since 2004, we have been majority-owned (via an Employee Stock Ownership Plan) by all members of our core staff, not just senior management. When you engage a member of our team, you are dealing with an owner. There is a high degree of pride in what we do, and a high degree of accountability to do it well. Each employee-owner has the opportunity to increase the value of our firm by making your organization more successful. We believe this is the ideal model for a services firm.
As you strive to make 2014 your best year ever, I encourage you to include Keller Schroeder in your plans. Whether we come alongside you to augment your IT staff, or whether you need to outsource a project or service completely, you can rest assured that the employee-owners of Keller Schroeder will be highly motivated to make your experience with us a positive one.
