Family, Trust, Team, Serve - Core Values that Make SSI a Great Place to Work
28 Apr 2023
One of our favorite questions to ask employees during a satisfaction survey is: What are some things we are doing great here? We are proud of the responses that show we have selected the right people to work here at SSI. Our carefully selected staff are experts in their fields and want to learn more to serve our customers better.
As all good business managers know, what really makes a company succeed are the people that believe and honor the values of your company every day. Just like our agribusiness customers, we are producing and selling a quality product and it takes the right team to make that happen.
SSI embraces four Core Values: Family, Trust, Team, and Serve. Dave Craft, VP of Sales and Marketing says “Our Core Values make up our company culture. Our Core Values make us who we are.” And, according to one employee, "The importance of family actually shines through at SSI. Almost every company tries to use it as a selling point to bring people in, but SSI actually embodies it. My family is the most important thing to me, and SSI actively participates in showing that is what they want as well."
Here are some of the responses from SSI employees when asked,
