The Company

Since its founding in 1959 in Hampton, Iowa, Kum & Go has grown into the fifth largest privately held, company-operated convenience store chain in the United States.

With more than 4,700 associates spread among 430 stores, the convenience store chain serves over 480,000 customers each day. In an industry where competitors are a dime a dozen, Kum & Go has survived by not being a “typical” convenience store – set apart by focusing on the customer. Their dedication to putting the customer first is shown in their commitment to engaging associates, who fuel a positive customer experience.

The Challenge

With the need to constantly differentiate itself from the many competitors it faces, Kum & Go decided to put a focus on “making lives better," starting with its own associates.

Company leaders know that if their associates aren’t happy, their customers won’t be either. And as a company whose defining feature is the passion it has for providing a great experience to customers, disengaged associates weren’t an option. Kum & Go needed survey technology that could hone in on insights from their retail and hourly associates – so they could be better equipped to increase engagement, and in turn, increase the experience of the customers they work with each and every day.

The Solution

Quantum Workplace's intuitive employee engagement software that made collecting feedback practical and easy, offering:
  • A quick rollout of the survey and results
  • A view into the feedback of hourly field employees for the first time
  • The ability to slice data to view unique perspectives of field versus corporate employees
  • Personalized reports and suggestions on how to improve the employee experience
  • No-hassle technology that resulted in a nearly perfect response rate
