Reading Plant Employee Wins Summer Photo Contest

WBrady_photo contest winnerWhether it was fun on the job, cooling off during a hot summer day, or catching co-workers doing what they do best, the Russell Standard Employee Summer Photo Contest was a success. During the month of August, Russell Standard encouraged employees to post a photo on the Russell Standard Facebook page for the chance to win a $50 gift card. The picture could be anything related to their job, including shots on the job site, in the office, with customers, etc. Whitney Brady, our sales and technical support manager at the Reading Plant, posted the winning image of a Russell Standard hard hat doubling as a hydration bowl on hot summer day.

The contest originated during a team meeting and was intended to bring our employees from all over the east coast closer together. “This was the first time we conducted a contest like this to help our employees see our nine plants and four offices, across four states as one large family,” said Matt Johnson, president of Russell Standard Corporation.

According to John Shutsa, Jr., vice president of sales and marketing, the contest interjected a little fun and reinforced a sense of community during the company’s busy season. “It’s refreshing to see our employees take time to appreciate all great things we’re doing and how lucky we are all able to be a part of it.”

Here is a sampling of the other images submitted.
