Investing In Employee's Dreams with the KDM Dream Makers Program

At KDM, we understand that employees have lives outside of the plant and the office. We know that what happens – or doesn't happen – in their personal lives affects their productivity and overall happiness. Every day, people defer their dreams or decide they are too far beyond their reach.
At KDM, we have a Full Time Dream Manager to help our employees fulfill their dreams. These individuals meet confidentially with employees who request this service to help them identify and then fulfill their dreams. They have partnered with banking and mortgage companies, financial planners, real estate companies, and many others, to assist employees in their quest for their personal goals. Sending a child to college, owning a first home, finishing a degree, eliminating debt – KDM's employees have used the KDM Dream Makers program to do the things they never thought would be possible.
