Answer

Yes

Work Step by Step

Work involves a change in energy, but it does not always involve kinetic energy. If you lift an object three feet off of the ground, for instance, kinetic energy has not changed (it is still at rest), yet you have certainly done work since the gravitational potential energy of the object has increased.
