Let’s Advance

If you’re not advancing, you’re retreating.

At Corios, one of our core values is “Sharpen the Saw.” This means that we believe in a constant pursuit of knowledge and excellence – and that our team never rests on our laurels or passes up an opportunity to grow and improve.

Corios Advance

To that end, we’re excited to report that we just wrapped up our annual company event in the wild. While some other companies might refer to this outing as a “retreat,” we decided to do something a little bit different.

Rather than taking a retreat – or step back – we sought to get everyone together to talk about how we can advance our work. The new name for our event, the Advance, reflects this aim of advancing our team bonds, our company strategies, and our ideas about what makes Corios great!

“I have an athletic background, so I’ve learned to seek out a team environment,” says Austin. “I really appreciate being a part of a cohesive team.

What is the most important thing people should know about working at Corios?

For Corios’ Vice President of Operations John Willey, it’s that you should learn to expect (and embrace) challenge.

“What we’re doing isn’t easy – but easy paths tend to not be the most rewarding,” says John. “We get to provide our clients with more than just a report – we’re building frameworks and software that they actually use every day. It’s challenging, but it’s fulfilling. And luckily, we have a great group of people who are willing to help out and collaborate along the way.”
