Our Culture

As a family business, we also treat our employees like family - the Karndean family. Our employees work towards our four company values:  

Karndean Values

  • People Matter – Empowered people are at the heart of Karndean. We trust each other and recognise achievement. Our employees go home at the end of day feeling that they have added true value, achieved something important and have been recognised.
  •  
  • Deliver the Promise - We behave with integrity and commit to our customers, our goals and the team. We each play a part in our shared success. We know what is expected of us. Teams are encouraged to accept responsibility and accountability. We always seek to do what we say are going to do.
  •  
  • Pioneering Spirit - We encourage bravery and creative thinking. It built Karndean and will define our future. New ideas from team members are very much welcomed. We are taught to challenge the status quo and think through the implications of the changes we put forward. We foster a “no blame” culture, to help the Company to move to a higher risk / higher reward culture.
  •  
  • Positive Energy - Our business is fuelled by dynamism, drive and an enthusiastic, with a strong ‘can-do’ attitude. We all lead by example, all “Living” the high-paced day and empowering our employees to show their own energy and to have fun.

 

We recognise those employees who work hard and excel in our company values via an employee of the month competition where employees can nominate their colleagues within the business. 

Karndean Culture

As well as rewarding our employees, we also work with local charities by hosting and taking part in multiple fundraising events.

 

Karndean Golf Day 2019

Our annual golf day raises thousands of pounds for good causes, and our latest trip round the course helped us support Maggie’s Cheltenham, Campden Home Nursing and Se7en Signs of Hope. The day proved to be a great success, and with the involvement of our auction and raffle, we managed to raise a total of £13,050 which has been split out and donated to our named charities.

Trek the Night

On 2nd June 2019, members of the team geared up to take part in 'Trek the Night' along the Cotswold Way in aid of Action Medical Research, a charity that transforms the lives of children with rare and incurable diseases. The Karndean members involved split off into two teams to hike a combined total of 252 miles.


Along with successfully complete the trek, the Karndean team raised a grand total of £2,765 for the charity, a huge achievement for everyone involved.
