Henry Kravis discusses company culture

3 May

Just what does it take to make a business successful? Is it a mission?  Having an idea about what kind of environment you want to work in every day?  A direction to steer you and your business?

Well, it certainly helps. But that’s a difficult decision in itself.  What kind of environment do you want?

Henry Kravis of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) knows the answer to that question, at least for himself.  When he started the firm with George Roberts they decided that everyone was going to be able to participate in everything they did.

“We wanted to build a firm where people helped each other.  And that’s exactly the kind of firm that we developed,” Henry Kravis explained in a recent video.  “The thing that people learn over time about KKR is that we really believe in the values that we set for the firm and we hope that everyone will abide by those values and live in the culture that we set here and I can’t emphasis how important that is for everyone who works at KKR.”
