COMMITMENT TO OUR EMPLOYEES
SOLID FOUNDATION OF GIVING
My impression of Kodiak is unwavering, this is a great company. The fact that they care enough to help the struggles of employees from all branches is inspiring.
“I applaud Kodiak’s thoughtfulness in trying to make a difference for their employees during a tough time.”
”I decided to donate to help out other members of the Kodiak family.”
Receiving assistance from the Employee Assistance Fund made me feel appreciated and cared for by a company that employs so many. I was surprised at the quick response from the company to offer support during this time. The gesture to offer help to the employees meant more to me than the amount of assistance. You can’t put a price tag on caring and support although the assistance was a great help. Just knowing it was employees helping employees makes me feel great about the people I work with everyday. I initially thought coming under the umbrella of a larger company would make us at my job seem like little people. But by Kodiak doing this I see they are committed to Barnsco core values just as much. One big extended family that sees people and families, not just employees. I am grateful and happy to be a part of the Kodiak family and I love what I do at Barnsco, Dallas.
To enable and motivate the greater Kodiak family to improve the communities we serve and the lives of our employees in times of need.
Commitment to our Employees
Kodiak, from the beginning, rooted its culture in helping and serving others in our communities. Along with that, we also believe in helping one other.
We want to be prepared to help our employees in times of hardships, natural disasters, and unforeseen events. Our employees across the United States are our greatest asset, and we truly are one big family. We encourage serving the communities we live in, and we also want to create and build a culture of giving, when one of our own is in need.
The Kodiak Building Partners Foundation was established to have available monies in place, in times of need, for our communities and employees. The Foundation facilitates individual operating units collect donations for the charities they support, as well as for Kodiak to solicit donations to help our employees during unforeseen events.
We are family, we are Kodiak Strong!
Kodiak Building Partners Foundation, Employee Assistance Fund
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
At Kodiak Building Partners, we truly believe our employees across the United States are our greatest asset. One of our takeaways from COVID-19 is that we want to be prepared to help our employees not only during unforeseen events, but also in times of hardships or natural disasters. For this reason, the Employee Assistance Fund through the Kodiak Building Partners Foundation was established earlier this year in direct response to COVID-19.
Employee Automatic Payroll Deduction:
As we look to the future, our goal is to continue building the Employee Assistance Fund so we will be prepared to help our fellow employees in times of need. To simplify the donation process for our employees, we have set up Automatic Payroll Deductions. Tax deductible contributions to the Employee Assistance Fund may now be automatically deducted from your paychecks and will be used to help fellow employees when extraordinary needs arise. Additionally, Kodiak will match 50% of all employee donations!
You may have heard the expression that “charity begins at home”. Well, Kodiak is our second home and our second family. While we encourage supporting needs outside of our organization, we also are excited to help our fellow employees in their time of need.

Giving is good for your health.

- While contributions to the KBPF will be deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes, neither the Foundation nor Kodiak will provide income tax advice or guarantee an income tax result.
- Contributions to the KBPF cannot and will not be considered in any way when evaluating an employee or his/her future opportunities within Kodiak.
