At RGG, we think true style is about more than what we sell. (Although we can't get enough of that either.) Our day-to-day style? Just as important. Whether we're in our Boston, Kentucky, or New York office, we lead by example. We strive to be tenacious, empowering, passionate, collaborative, innovative, and kind. Every day.
We grab coffee and brainstorm new ways to delight our Members. Volunteer on- and off-hours together. And plan some serious birthday surprises for our coworkers, because nothing sparks creativity like a breakfast granola buffet or an afternoon slice of cake.
And this style of work? It inspires confidence in our Members and confidence in ourselves to think, create, innovate, and make our 9-to-5 more than what happens between weekends.
