At the heart of Credo is a culture of community. Credo Software was founded as a flexible working environment for friends and family. 22 years later as we strive to build from the lifestyle to a legacy company, nurturing the growth of the community is important. Onboarding new hires through mentorship is vital, especially in the hybrid work environment.

CREDO MENTORSHIP REALIZES GREAT EXPECTATIONS:
Expectations can not be met if expectations are not set. The Credo CORE philosophy is designed to onboard new team members to what it means to be a Credo team member. Past and ongoing projects are used as guidelines for mentorship. Client needs and expectations are explained. Open points lists show newly assigned tasks. Through a successful mentorship, expectation of project ownership will be mirrored by mentor. With guided milestones, mentorship maps out actionable successes.
Open communication with mentor sets expectations. Defining technical standards in CORE mentorships is key. This trains new team members to the quality and best practices expected. Mentorship creates open dialogue to promote creative innovative solutions.
After onboarding, new Credo team members continue to work along side their mentors. The Credo community is strengthen by this collaboration. With CORE mentorship and new clients, Credo will sustainably and responsibly grow.
