We are excited to announce Kennards Self Storage will soon open its 85th location, expanding our footprint into busy South East Brisbane.

Located at 801 Lytton Road, Murarrie, this busy road is the main arterial travelling east to west south side of Brisbane River. The location is highly visible and very convenient for customers in the surrounding areas of Cannon Hill, Hemmant, Tingalpa, from east Brisbane through to Wynnum.

Our new self-storage centre is a real statement standing five levels high over 11,000 square metres, a true Orange Beacon of Freedom as we like to call them.

The centre will offer over 600 storage spaces in various sizes, meeting the storage needs for both personal and business storage customers. The sizes range from one cubic metre lockers to larger enterprise spaces over forty square metres, perfect for that small to medium business and everything in between.

Annual Health Check Up, What’s Your Culture?

Kennards Self Storage started measuring culture back in 1998, using the OCI Circumplex culture assessment tool from Human Synergistics who provide and consult on the Circumplex testing model. Our commitment and investment into measuring culture continues to this day with the results of our 2015 Culture Survey now in.

This year our culture survey results show we remain a predominately constructive organisation. This is represented by the intensity of the blue colour under the constructive thinking styles and shows Kennards is an organisation that values the contribution and efforts of its Team Members; encouraging and supporting its Team Members to grow, develop and make decisions. Where mistakes are celebrated and people are more important than things.

Why do we continue to measure culture?

A strong constructive culture creates an environment that inspires Team members and directs energy into effective modes of thinking and behaviour. A business that achieves results and provides a fun and happy work environment that attracts and retains great talent, which in return creates success.

Our results this year have only shown minor changes on the previous year. Both results are pleasing with the Blue Constructive Styles dominating the Red and Green ineffective Defensive Styles.
