We pride ourselves on our quality of work, relationship-oriented service (both internal and external), and our commitment to create a work environment that fosters trust, encouragement, respect, and continuous improvement.

We could tell you things like historically we have had very low turnover. In addition, we have had multi generations of the same families work here many times (to the 3rd generations in a couple of occasions).

But this is why we think our employees WANT to work here, and why we are not your average employer:

  • We are committed to introducing new people to the industry.
  • We believe in the development of staff. We have a responsibility to provide training and staff development in both technical and interpersonal skills. But the employee also has a responsibility to ongoing learning, so we look for those kinds of people who understand this mutual responsibility.
  • We are committed to promoting from within. All of our executive leadership team has been a long term, promoted Speer person. It has been a long time since we recruited a high-level manager.
  • We work hard to live day by day to our core values.
  • We do what is right, by our people, and by our customers.
  • We are an employee-owned company. Our ESOP is one of the oldest and most established in central Ohio.
  • We are committed to industry and community affairs. We believe that we have a responsibility to make our industry and community better, and our people are encouraged to be part of this, and they do participate.
  • We set high standards of performance, but we also work to help people reach those standards.
  • We are clearly perceived to be an industry leader.
