The SheerGenius Award recognizes a team member who has gone above and beyond on behalf of Sheer clients, partners and team members.
The winner of Sheer’s 2018 Q3 SheerGenius award was nominated by three of his peers, who describe him as a quick learner, a team player and a strong communicator. Fairly new to Sheer, Stephen Ladd has also impressed one account manager in particular, who refers to our winner as “invaluable”, especially during busy times for taking the initiative to cover loads and schedule pick-up and delivery appointments. Another colleague says Stephen “dominates every day” by using a combination of skill and attitude that Stephen attributes to growing up playing sports. “I don’t want to be someone who lets the team down by slacking off,” he says. ‘I will continue to work hard and set Sheer up for success.”
