Drake Software is proud to announce the launch of a new employee mentorship program as part of its Building a Strong Workforce initiative. The program will invest in employees’ futures by equipping them with the support they need to succeed.

What will the mentorship program do?

The Drake Software employee mentorship program will foster a learning culture by pairing experienced mentors with new hires and interested current employees. As part of this new team, Drake mentors will provide guidance that:

  • Promotes personal and professional development
  • Increases job satisfaction
  • Improves employee retention 

The program will also help mentors deepen their extensive company knowledge by contributing to colleagues’ success. 

Who will be part of the mentorship team?

The mentorship program will initially be composed of Support veterans and alumni. These employees gain diverse, comprehensive knowledge of Drake Software products, customers, and internal processes, making them the ideal group to promote into other areas of the company.

Support alumni have more than 100 years of combined experience with Drake, and they have long served as a pillar of the company’s success. Alumni now provide their expertise in diverse areas of Drake, including sales, information security, software development, government relations, customer education, and customer onboarding.
