Caught Living the Values Winner: Shannon Herr, Persona Buyer

Our Caught Living the Values winner for June is Shannon Herr. She was nominated by an employee who remains anonymous. They nominated Shannon under the categories of “Wow-ing the Customer”, “Doing the Right Thing”, “Our People Come First” and “Being the Best.” The nominator wrote, “Shannon is the first from her team in and the last to leave. Her laugh can be heard by everyone around her, and she is always willing to step up and help and answer every question that comes her way. She is very knowledgeable in her job. You can just see her passion for the job as well through her work.”

Shannon’s position at Persona is a Buyer/Material Manager. She is responsible for buying a large portion of the raw materials that Persona uses to build signs. Materials include steel, aluminum, laser cut parts, ink, paint, etc. She also manages inventory, which includes managing obsolete materials, processing cycle counts, and making inventory adjustments.

 “Persona is a great company to work for! I enjoy the atmosphere the most. It has an environment similar to a small company, but the workload is that of a large company. So, it challenges me while allowing me to have fun,” Shannon said.

Out of our wide selection of submissions, we also award a winner chosen at random. This month, Samantha Fieber was nominated by Kelsey O’Farrell.

 “Samantha has always stepped in to help when I wasn’t receiving answers from others. She helped me find the answers I needed! I really appreciate her help and she deserves more recognition,” said Kelsey. Sam was nominated under the Teamwork and Mastery categories.

She continues, “My advice for other employees to be Caught Living the Values is just to do the right thing! We all have the ability to do the right thing every day and the Persona values all fall into this category.”
