It takes strong relationships to build a home. To build a strong relationship it takes respect, integrity, and open and honest communication. Our employees are the heart and soul of KB, and that belief in relationships defines how we behave toward each other, how we treat our customers through every step of the process, and, how we work with our suppliers, trade, and municipality partners.
Innovative design and quality construction standards are the cornerstones of our brand. Behind our continuous drive to build exceptional homes is a passion for the wellbeing of those who live in them. From architecture to construction to customer service, we care about making our buyers’ lives more comfortable, convenient, and healthy. That’s how we lead the industry in customer satisfaction, and strive to keep it that way.
Our business model is built on a simple, yet radical idea: a house becomes your home when it’s an expression of who you are. That's why we give our customers the ability to choose - from homesite to elevation, from floor plan to design options - and a buying experience that's personalized from end-to-end.
We believe that every customer deserves a home that lives up to their dreams. That’s why it’s our shared responsibility to ensure that what we build delivers great value, so that every customer gets a home—and a homebuying experience— that can exceed their expectations without exceeding their budget. It’s a disciplined and responsible approach to homebuilding that’s good for our homebuyers and our business.
From individuals, to families, to whole communities, our collective actions can have a beneficial impact on the world. We believe that every decision we make, from how we manage our workplace, to how we run our operations, has the potential to advance environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
For KB, sustainability is built on one essential idea: balance. We strive to help today's homebuyers achieve the dream of homeownership while balancing that objective with mindfulness about the sustainability needs of future generations and our environment. Our longstanding commitment to sustainability encompasses our industry-leading environmental initiatives, design to help protect the environment and keep homeownership affordable for our customers; our evolving social programs, investing in the relationships we have with our employees and within our communities; and our strong governance standards and structure. We are pleased to have been recognized for our sustainability leadership by being the only homebuilder named to Newsweek®’s 2022 list of America's Most Responsible Companies.
At KB Home, everything we do is Built on Relationships. That’s why we believe that every action we take – from how we care for our communities to how we safeguard the planet – has the potential to make a positive impact for everyone. Our KB Cares program is one way we put that ideal into action in four key focus areas:
- Shelter: Helping find shelter for those in the most challenging circumstances.
- Community: Investing in the well-being of those who live in our communities.
- Sustainability & environment: Limiting our footprint on the planet and ensuring that our physical environment remains clean and beautiful.
- Construction skills & employment: Training future builders with the skills needed to build careers for themselves.
People are our foundation. And that defines how we work together as a team. In fact, feedback from our employees earned us a place of Forbes' 2022 list of America's Best Midsize Employers, the only national homebuilder to receive this distinction two years in a row. We're in the business of building communities, not just houses, and look for people who will come together and join us for a common purpose.
