Crestmark launched an employee education initiative with a nationwide Pep Rally on January 7 that was kicked off by Crestmark Chairman/CEO Dave Tull. All Crestmark employees (including TIP Capital) were enrolled into Crestmark University, an online dynamic learning portal.
Through this training platform, all Crestmark employees will have access to a library of more than 10,000 professional training videos and courses, including 300+ targeted videos on Crestmark’s policies and procedures. Courses are assigned throughout the year to employees and managers based on their roles and responsibilities within the company.
Some Crestmark University course examples include: Microsoft Office training in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint; compliance; business etiquette; supervision; teamwork; project and time management; and a full assortment of educational videos geared toward maintaining an effective and positive work environment.
“Crestmark University gives our employees the opportunity to learn more about their jobs as well as the jobs of others, and will lead to a broader understanding of how things work,” said Scot Lund, First Vice President, Director of Program Management, who leads the Crestmark University platform. “Over the next several years, we will be creating and adding to our internally prepared educational material. In addition to helping with training, recruiting, and retaining employees; this will set us apart from other lenders in our market, and we feel a more educated staff will further benefit our clients.”
