At Kleiner Services Inc. (KSI), we have four core values: Professionalism, Leadership, Education, and Community. These four core values help guide us to make small and big decisions in our daily lives at work.  We are so proud and happy to be able to start our #KleinerGives initiative as part of the #GivingTuesday community.

Being a small business, it is important for us to connect with other small businesses in the community to ensure we are all thriving in the industry.

Through the #KleinerGives initiative, we will be donating to local charities and fundraisers every Tuesday as part of our #Project52weeks.  We hope that we can encourage other companies small or large to join us in this weekly project to help make a difference in our Small Business BC community.

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” ― Coretta Scott King

Professionalism: Our goal at KSI is to provide consistent quality of work. Our higher quality of work equates to a level of professionalism that gives us the opportunity to give back to our community and be philanthropic.

Leadership: Our value is to lead by example and work as a team. Our goal is to encourage others to get involved in the charities we feature with #KleinerGives, or provide a platform for supporting other organizations that you believe in. Lead with us and share what causes you are passionate about.

Education: We believe in empowering our employees and clients through education and support. We are not just movers but important individuals in the community that are compassionate and show empathy to our clients while they embark on a journey to a new beginning.

Community: Our final core value is to be trustworthy and respectful to everyone and the environment. To do this we must be professional leaders by educating ourselves to be accountable in our world. Through this education, we are to understand the needs of our community and be able to support everyone better.

“There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.” ― Franklin D. Roosevelt
