The human resources team at Richmond Steel Recycling is always looking for news ways to engage the various members of our team. We’ve come up with the bi-monthly employee spotlight, which gives members of staff the opportunity to share a little bit about their experience with us.

The Edmonton team is fun and approachable; they are always willing to help each other and customers. The environment at the Edmonton yard makes coming to work enjoyable

I have learned so many things at Richmond Steel but what I have enjoyed the most is learning how to operate the many different types of equipment we have on site.

4. Who do you think is your biggest inspiration in our company?

My biggest inspiration at Richmond Steel is Beverly Cowan. Her vast knowledge and willingness to help is very inspiring. When I have questions – she always has the answer.

5. How have you grown professionally after joining our team?

I believe the knowledge I have gained while working at Richmond Steel has helped me grow professionally which has allowed me to build more confidence in pushing my own limits to take on bigger challenges.
