“I’ve Never Woken up and not Wanted to Come to Work”: How KPA Keeps People Inspired Every Day

An Insider's view of KPA

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I have always loved going into the KPA HQ office. I love learning about all aspects of KPA through colleagues in other departments. With our office closed for COVID, we are still finding ways to collaborate and celebrate each other on a regular basis. It is through townhalls and virtual meetups. We need each other to get it done!


Human Resources Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The SDR team is at the center of outreach and client engagement in many cases. I personally love to collaborate with all teams when asked because in the end we all have the same vision. Stepping outside that comfy little box is the only way to successfully schedule appointments, create opportunities and close deals.


Sales Development Representative

What makes someone successful on your team?

Being in a client facing role, holding a professional & positive demeanor is crucial to one’s success. The ability to empathize with varying clients’ needs & changing communication styles are also essential. Most importantly though, is relationship building. It is our job to instill trust with our clients & once this happens, the rest is simple.

The Sales Development function at KPA is a trusted and well-respected voice.
