At SRC, our most powerful asset is our people – whether you’re an employee-owner or a customer – you’ll be surrounded by energized, engaged and empowered entrepreneurs. Our open-book culture has created a team environment that cannot be matched. Because our employees are invested in our ownership culture, our people take work seriously. Each employee-owner at SRC receives business and financial literacy training to continue our journey of building a business of business people who think, act and feel like owners—a practice started by our CEO, Jack Stack, renowned author, speaker and founder of "The Great Game of Business™." The Game is all about creating a business of business people, and it impacts our culture every day.
SRC isn't just another company. It's a company of owners--individuals who are taught about running a business with financial and business literacy training, individuals who want to make a difference, individuals who care. Our philosophy is called Open Book Management. Open Book Management is about creating visibility and transparency throughout the organization on the financial health of the company, harnessing the wisdom of the crowd and making decisions collectively to move the business forward. It's about knowing and teaching the rules, following the action and keeping score and about providing a stake in the outcome. Our employee-owners are about winning. Our employee-owners are about growing. Our employee-owners are just like you. Take your career to the next level: Own It!
Our philosophy is to take care of our owners. It’s as simple as that. We do this through a number of ways:
We offer a comprehensive benefits package to all of our employee-owners that includes medical, dental, long and short term disability coverage and all at a very low cost to our owners. In fact, we’ve gone over 10 years with no major price increase to our owners!
Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP).
Every employee from the custodial staff to the CEO of SRC is an owner and is provided stock into the company on an annual basis at a percentage of their annual income. This program is what makes us owners.
In addition to the ESOP, we offer a 401(k) plan for our employees in which we match dollar for dollar up to 5% of the employee-owners annual income.
On-Site Fitness Center.
Our commitment to taking care of our owners doesn’t stop at the pocketbook. We believe in helping our owners to build a healthy life—financial and physical. We offer access to an on-site fitness center to our Springfield employee-owners complete with free weights, elliptical and treadmill machines.
Advancement and Growth Opportunities.
All of our employee-owners are offered ways to grow from professional to educational growth. SRC Automotive®, Inc. offers a Tuition Reimbursement Program to all of our employee-owners who want to progress in their educational pursuits from Associates to Doctorate degrees and Professional Certification Programs. At SRC, we also believe in growing our owners. We strive to promote from within and pride ourselves on the opportunities, and successes, we’ve created for our owners.
Holiday and Vacation Schedules.
We understand everyone deserves to spend time with their friends and family. We offer all of our employee-owners paid vacation as well as many paid Holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.
