Core Values & Merit Shop Philosophy

DECCO Core Values

Developed over the past 87 years, our core values have stood the test of time and remain integral to how we do business.   In 2020 our core values were put to the test during a pandemic.  Our Core Values guided us through some of the most uncertain times in our Country’s history.   During this time, it became evident that we would formally adopt a fifth Core Value “Servant Leadership: In Order to Lead, We Must First Serve”.   

Partnership: We Trust and Respect Each Other

Our employees are our “partners”; we are humbled that they have entrusted their careers with us. DECCO clients are our lifeblood, we exist to help them succeed in their endeavors. 

Excellence: We Take Pride in Our Work

We are personally invested in the work we execute.  We will continuously strive to exceed client expectations for quality, safety and value.

Commitment: We Honor Them, Always

We do what we say, always.  Our partners are empowered to make decisions that reflect their unique perspective and experiences.

Ethics: Uncompromising Integrity & Honesty in Everything We Do

We will earn trust and our actions will always align with our commitments.  Our word is our bond.

Servant Leadership: In Order to Lead, We Must First Serve

We are empathetic listeners, dedicated to helping each other succeed.

Merit Shop Philosophy

We believe the merit shop movement is a movement for the betterment of the individual, the construction industry, and the nation. We will defend the system of free enterprise where employees and employers have a shared concern for the general welfare of the employee and the organization.

The partners that choose a merit-shop career at DECCO seek the opportunity to provide for their families in a safe working environment that rewards strong work ethic and exceptional work.

We support our employees’ aspirations with a federally-approved apprentice program that has produced national gold-medal winning apprentices in the ABC Craft Olympics. Training is a lifelong commitment and DECCO is proud to operate our Craft Training and Weld School facility in Chelmsford Massachusetts.

In addition, we are proud of our industry leading safety programs that focus on communication, planning, and investment. We are fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters and we go home to our families after every day’s work.
