SRC Holdings Corporation is a 100% Employee-Owned Company employing over 1,200 people, with sales of over $450,000,000 located in Springfield, Missouri. While SRC`s chief business is remanufacturing, the company is best known for being the birthplace of open-book management. Once a failing division of International Harvester, SRC made national headlines when CEO, Jack Stack, used unconventional measures to turn the company around.
Under Stack`s leadership, employees started playing "The Great Game of Business". The Game was a way to teach employees how business worked in a way that was unintimidating and would make sense to everyone: using the analogy of a game. Using this method, SRC became one of the biggest turn-around stories of its time.
Thirty years later, SRC Holdings Corporation operates 31 business units including joint ventures with John Deere, Case New Holland and Navistar, and maintains two venture capital incubator funds. SRC Holdings Corporation has received international recognition because of its success, including the Top 100 Companies to Work for in America, WorldBlu Most Democratic Workplaces, the National Business Ethics Award and the Business Enterprise Trust Award.
