Employees Who Inspire

Our marvelous employees really are our only secret ingredient. We only hire one in ten who apply, most of who are in high school and participate in extracurricular activities. We provide them a safe, friendly environment and encourage them to develop enduring life skills required to have successful, long-lasting careers. For many of our employees, Dion’s is their first job. Like it was for our CEO whom says he got a summer job at Dion’s when he was 16 and never left.

Every month we tell a story about an employee who inspires us both inside and outside of Dion’s.

When asked to think of an employee who is inspiring, Shari was quick to be nominated by her General and Assistant Managers. Shari exceeds expectations both at Dion’s, and other aspects of her life.

Shari works a full schedule at our Colorado Springs store, and is also enrolled as a full-time student. Shari maintains a GPA over 4.0, while also training other employees to make Great Food as a Dion’s Expert.

Many are inspired by Shari’s positive outlook. She has a quiet, yet strong presence and always goes above and beyond in what she does. Her General Manager, Randy, said “She always gives 120%. She is someone that can be depended on. She is always willing to hop in, and do what needs to be done”

Shari lives with intention, and her commitment to self-development makes her a great example of the Dion’s Leadership Cornerstone of Accountability. We are excited to recognize Shari as an “Employee Who Inspires” and have presented her with a $150 Visa Gift Card. Keep up the hard work, Shari.
