Kuney Construction has a history of employee retention. We maintain an average tenure of over 10 years. We believe our retention is as high as it has become, because we operate more like a small business than a large company. Every permanent employee at Kuney Construction from New Grad to tenured Superintendent is known to ownership by both face and name. This gives every person in our organization a voice and a sense of ownership in both the jobs they are assigned and the company success as a whole.

Kuney Construction has an annual review program. The goal of this program is to increase the frequency a manager speaks with employees about training, interests, advancement opportunities and expectations.

If it’s decided a person requires an increase or a decrease in frequency of contact concerning feedback managers adapt the fit the needs of the individual while doing our best to ensure the needs of both the company and the employee are met.

Here at Kuney we have a path for field supervision and project management. Both new grads and trade workers can qualify for field supervision by becoming a Area Superintendent and then superintendent of jobs. For those with Engineering or Construction Management degrees we offer advancement opportunities into project management and company leadership.
