With this in mind, let’s get to know Sheryl a little bit better, as she’s our March spotlight in the “People Who Delight” series. We’ll learn more about her role and how she continually helps the RJE team expand and grow. Learn more about Sheryl below!

What lead you to RJE?
I had the opportunity to learn about the company and culture through a former employee.
What’s your favorite thing about working at RJE?

Describe RJE in three words:
Hard working, caring, fun environment (okay, maybe five words)

Not to sound cliché but, “Do What We Say We Will Do.” We cannot control everything, but if we do that, in the end that is all that matters!
What does an inspiring space include in your eyes?
I think that is specific for each person, but for me it’s what speaks to the culture of a company. It should be fun and exciting so that employees are reminded of who and what they stand for.

That I am dependable and that they know they can count on me.
What is your current favorite product from Allsteel and its portfolio of brands?
Loving the Beyond Cabanas.
