“Most of my days are spent introducing new employees to our company, culture, and products. As a corporate trainer, I train new employees on Breeze, accounting, residential, commercial, and system administration training on Yardi’s flagship program Voyager,” said Rutherford.

When Rutherford is not training new employees, he is training himself on topics, working on various candidate certification programs, and reviewing Aspire courses as a subject matter expert before they are released.

Foundation development

Rutherford enjoys being one of the first people new employees meet during new employee training.

“I pride myself in being a model employee and strive to give every new employee a great foundation to grow from within their new job role at Yardi,” shared Rutherford.

Teamwork collaboration is something that Rutherford appreciates that Yardi strongly promotes. The corporate training team achieves so much working as a team rather than individually. “As Gestalt would say, ‘The sum of the whole is greater than its individual parts,’” he quoted.

Rutherford also enjoys being invited to present at industry conferences.

“My last presentation was for the IRO Summit, where I presented basic accounting for property managers. The recording made it to Yardi’s YouTube channel and has 13,000 views and counting!”

For a new hire seeking employment at Yardi, Rutherford describes Yardi as a great organization to join.

“Yardi is a place where you are rewarded for sharing your knowledge with others around you. When in need, a coworker is one call or message away to assist. If you’re a person who thrives on learning something new daily, Yardi is the place for you! Eight years later, I’m still learning daily,” enthused Rutherford.
