What Is "The KBS Way"?
Customer Service is rooted in our DNA. KBS was founded on the idea that our clients come first. That philosophy is truly at the foundation of who we are and how we operate. Each potential path connected to your insurance journey can very quickly become a commoditized decision. While economics are certainly a positive outcome of the work we do, we believe that the “how and why" drives the “what” in this equation. We are able to create cost-effective, sustainable, and efficient solutions by focusing on our process, our clients, and our shared values.
with a rigorous review of insurance options and risk management strategies to bring the best benefit to our clients.
suitable programs that allow our clients to prioritize resources to support organizational success.
strategic partnerships that provide value through additional insurance and benefit solutions.
legislative actions for any potential impact on our clients and implications for KBS products or services.
The KBS way is focused on your insurance journey. We have created easy-to-use solutions that put the power in your hands. Our promise is simple. KBS will provide you with consulting, insurance, and benefits solutions custom-built for public entities just like yours. Together, we will free up resources that help you better serve your communities.
Kansas Association of School Boards is our parent company. Your success is your community’s success, and our success is student success – that is a purpose we can all get behind.
