FALCON FOCUS – SHERRI RUSSELL
by: Joseph Rodriguez
Before coming to InterConnect Wiring, I did not know what a Corporate Culture Coordinator was. But since then, I have learned how Sherri Russell and her role at the company has helped to improve the lives of everyone at InterConnect. Sherri’s main job is to help our team to love coming to work. Why? Because Connections Matter!
Could you tell me a bit about your role?
A Corporate Culture Coordinator is someone who wants to let others feel excited, entertained, and enthusiastic about work. I hope to create camaraderie between employees and make them
excited to come to work. We also make sure to recognize employees on a regular basis for their milestone achievements and recognize a Fantastic Falcon each day.
How do you accomplish all that your role entails?
We celebrate events such as Easter, the Kentucky Derby, and Cinco de Mayo. We also have family-oriented company picnics and Christmas parties. We also have some games, competitions, and tournaments that we host. The winners of those contests win a picnic in our Falcon picnic area.
How do you think your role helps others?
I hope that my role helps others be happy and happy for other Falcons. They’re happy that their fellow employee wins or does well. And they are willing to help ach other out if they are having a problem or issue with something. For me, it is an incredible feeling. I love my job because it makes me happy making other people happy.
What is your favorite thing about working at InterConnect?
The events. My favorite event is Halloween. We have big contests where we give prizes for the best costume, scariest costume, and best pumpkin designs. It’s great because it gives people a
chance to step out of your comfort zone, and I like seeing what everyone dresses up as. I also love dressing up our President, John, for the various holidays. I’ve dressed him up as a
leprechaun and as a dalmatian while I was Cruella de Vil. People will come up to me and ask what I am going to do next when dressing up John. It is good because it puts John out of his
norm and makes him more regular to employees.
Sherri was born and raised in Mesquite, TX. She attended Northern Mesquite High School before graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington with a degree in Real Estate Finance and
an undergrad in Architecture. She is a real estate agent. She enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren and likes to travel. Her favorite trip ever was to Fiji. She has been
working at InterConnect for two and a half years.
