Education and Training
Sharpe is dedicated to giving all employees the opportunity and the tools to succeed in their careers and in life. All aspects of our company are designed with employees success in mind. Every year, as part of our strategic plan, we create a theme with a specific focus. Last year it was health and wellness. This year's theme was education. The Sharpe 2020 calendar was filled with programs and events specifically focused on education. We want to commend our workforce for their dedication to personal development and the completion of certifications during these challenging times.
Sharpe + Red Cross
Sharpe Interior Systems, Inc. and the American Red Cross remain steadfast in our mission to prevent and alleviate suffering in the face of emergencies. Last year, Sharpe launched a campaign, "Sharpe SleevesUp", to support the American Red Cross with blood and cash donations. We have asked our employees, family members, friends, industry partners, and community to consider volunteering to make two blood donations. In turn, Sharpe will donate $100 to The American Red Cross for every pint of blood collected. We are hoping to reach a target of 800 blood donations and $80,000 in company contributions.

We continue to evolve the possibilities of our trade. We have made technological leaps forward that enable creative visions to come to life like never before, while also considering how we can implement processes to reduce our waste footprint.

CommandReady MLM Wolfpack
The CommandReady wolf encounter was the conclusion event after eight modules on leadership development for select Sharpe Foremen. Attendees met biweekly over a four-month period to empower the new and high potential leaders on the Sharpe team. These meetings help Sharpe Foremen understand the monumental difference their leadership can make on their job to ensure success for not only them, but the entire organization. Leaders making decisions that act in the best interest of the build, with the confidence that they understand how their input can accelerate and grow their entire team. The Apex Protection Project rescues wolves and brings awareness to the community about the value of the wolf pack. Humans have been partnering with wolves for 35,000 years and we continue to learn from them, including the benefit of healthy conflict, working toward a common good and roles of different people on a team.
Several of the Sharpe employees took part in a "Build A Bike" event which is a part of a leadership program focused on growing leaders, engaging teams, and overcoming challenges. Each class comes with challenges to encourage the teams to try new ideas. One of the team challenges is working together, blindfolded, to assemble children’s bikes. This 40-minute event represents the stress and challenges of the job site where depending on teammates for information and collaboration is paramount. Stress brings out different things in everyone, but leaders have to understand that the product matters even when you are frustrated. Someone is going to receive your work so your attitude matters, a lot. The people that benefit from the challenge are young children recovering from cancer, and children who have never owned a bike. Driving home the lesson that everything Sharpe employees do, matters. At Sharpe Interior Systems, Inc., we do more than just Drywall.
Watch us at Work Waldorf Astoria
A building only goes up once. You've got one shot to get it right. A nice clean smooth wall doesn't start with the taping. It starts with getting the drawings and opening them up from the very first day. It's not just our finishers, it's not just our builders, it's our entire team. How we collaborate on what needs to happen. Everything has to be perfect and coordinated. It is important because it creates a habit - a culture. It's the way Sharpe operates - it's the way we do things. We look at our work, even though it's just drywall, as art. At the end of the day, we want our walls to look like art. When you hire Sharpe, you are going to get that attention to detail and we are very proud of that.
