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 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, “SSI truly is guided by the core values and that shows from the top down. Family is #1 and outside of our biological family, we have a work family. I very much feel that it is an important core value that SSI stresses and I LOVE that about this company.”

Here are just a few more comments from SSI employees describing “what we are doing great here”,
