As an employee of Clickstop, you work hard to achieve great things for Clickstop, beginning with alignment through the Values and working hard at the things you’ve been given to do through your role. In turn, Clickstop managers work hard to achieve great things for the employee; namely, the opportunity to move towards the things that matter most to the employee.
A unique outcome to this relationship is the commitment that each party has to making time for fun and family. Clickstop managers and employees are committed to achieving great business results without sacrificing the things that matter to us most. At times, the business results require extra attention. When this occurs, the business notices. The added investment from the employee is appreciated and recognized, not simply expected and consumed. The recognition is evidenced through flexibility with time off, an improved campus experience, opportunities for learning and development and greater alignment between an individual’s strengths and his role.
As this process repeats itself, trust grows. As trust grows, so does the freedom and autonomy to move towards the things that matter most; family, hobbies, friends, community, new role, etc.
Matt Bruckman is a firm believer in always doing the right thing, regardless of who’s watching.

What is your role at Clickstop?
Sales Specialist on the CAT Team
How long have you worked at Clickstop?
Four and half years.
How did you feel upon being recognized for this award?
What do you believe has led up to this recognition?
I am a firm believer in doing the right thing when nobody is looking, do your best everyday and try to be better today than you were yesterday.
Have you had struggles within this Core Value? If so, what have they been and how did you overcome them?
Fun can be a challenge for me, I am wound a little tight and put a lot of responsibility on myself and the team to hold ourselves to high standards.
Why is this Core Value important to the success of Clickstop?
Keeps things in perspective, we must be able to laugh at ourselves or situations and appreciate why we work so hard to provide for our family.
What can we find you doing when you’re not at work?
Either with my family or in the woods or by the water. I enjoy hunting and fishing, more fishing as I have gotten older. I had the joy of taking the Mrs., our youngest daughter and her boyfriend to Canada last year. They can’t wait until this year to go again.
What brought you to Clickstop?
I was referred by Tim Sanders and Ben Rechkemmer (used to work with Tim Sanders).
What keeps you at Clickstop?
The quality of the work we do and the people. I love how our culture and work keep getting better by the people we hire. It seems the bar rises with every new team member we welcome.
If you could live in any period of history when would it be and why?
The 50’s. It was a simpler time with less distractions. Kindness was expected, we knew our neighbors, looked out for everyone’s best interest and we were dressed much better. The cars were way better as well.
Tell us about your first cell phone? What were the features?
I remember getting a bag phone in 1991 when they became available. Its feature was that we call from our phone while driving, WHAT?!?
What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
I’ve done woodworking my entire life, so I have a two-fold answer. I would love to have a shop set up with distinct stations for each tool and the appropriate space. I would build furniture all the time if I had this. The second would be to restore old cars, I have no metal or mechanical knowledge, so I would love the challenge of learning new things.
