Recruiting and Retaining Employees

The staffing on a property can make or break operations. A talented team, working together, can accomplish all the goals of the property. On the flip side, if there is a weak link or one team member that is not performing, the performance of the property will suffer. Our HR team at Keener Management recruits and hires the best onsite employees and retains team members by providing comprehensive benefit packages, ongoing training, and staff development. We subscribe to the philosophy of promoting from within whenever possible and ensure that our properties comply with state and federal employment law.

We believe in fostering open lines of communication, autonomy, respect, and growth from within. Keener is proud to be nationally recognized for four consecutive years as one of the “Best Places to Work Multifamily®.
