The Clickstop Code

The Clickstop Code is a series of behaviors that we believe can be seen in our people as a result of living out our core values.  These behaviors are what drive great outcomes at Clickstop.

Make progress towards your dreams and goals every day.

Pursue perfection, acknowledging that it can’t be attained, but that along the way you will achieve excellence. Be courageous and accept that it won’t be easy; great achievements never are.
Be your best self – never settle. Prepare for what’s next, even if it’s not yet on the horizon; your preparation might be the reason it becomes possible. Be strong. Embrace feedback as it will only make you better. Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Do the hard things. Speak the truth. Be wise and compassionate. Make time to think beyond limits. Don’t make excuses. Encourage others and compliment generously. Be humble. Be honest. Forgive. Learn new skills. Laugh. Have fun. Have a positive outlook. Be grateful.
