To be considered for this award was a great honor and privilege.
Kennedy’s were recognised for our reinvestment of a minimum of 1.5% of our turnover into staff training.
Twice as profitable as other similar companies within the industry, Kennedy’s Timbers now has 600% lower staff turnover, three times lower staff absenteeism, fewer lost time injury days and one of the lowest Work Cover premiums in the Queensland manufacturing sector. The average length of service of staff has substantially increased from 1 to 6.7 years.
“One thing that we believe in is training people.
The future represents the best opportunity for everyone and if you invest in your people in training the sky is the limit.” Founder, Michael Kennedy
