To “build strong relationships” with our partners and employees by providing a customer service rich environment and meeting the development needs of the markets in which we operate.
Aikens Group believes that our employees are the strength of our company’s foundation. Our founder believed in the Merit Shop philosophy where the “real net worth of a company is its employees: the efficiency, ambitions, attitudes, health, and stability.”
Aikens Group feels that an employee/employer connection is a relationship. It is both parties responsibility to watch out for what is best for each other to make the bond stronger and more successful. Every employee has the opportunity for continued education, development, and advancement within the company. It is important every employee feels engaged and are trained for their position. Internal promotions and transfers are a common practice for those interested in growing professionally and personally with the organization.
Being a family owned and operated business, we have a direct link to the communities in which we operate. Aikens Group’s officers and employees are active members of many non-profit organizations in order to give a little back to the community.
Our belief is that our community is only as strong and viable as its inhabitants. The Shenandoah Valley is a beautiful place to live, raise our children, and retire. The Aikens Group has been a company in the valley since 1931 and has benefited from the economic growth the valley has seen. We welcome the opportunity to give back!
