About Klick Inc.

Klick Inc. was a 2017 Best Managed Company for excellence in business performance for the ninth consecutive year.

In the words of Klick’s CEO , “Our commitment to put our people first, prioritize outcomes over optics, and inoculate ourselves against the status quo has not wavered.”

Klick invested in a number of initiatives over the last year:

  • The Klick Academy eLearning program.
  • Klick held its Conscious Leadership Summit to inspire Klicksters to lead with intention and purpose for greater engagement and innovation.
  • Philanthropic Leadership Pipeline trips to Kenya, Ecuador and Tanzania were organized, resulting in about 35 Klicksters helping build schools with WE Charity.

The company just held a 24-hour internal hackathon. Teams of Klickster intrapreneurs, designers, coders, inventors, creative team members, and project managers developed innovative hacks to make working at the culture-obsessed company even better.

Last month, Klick was also named a Great Place to Work for the 6th time, a Best Workplace for Women for the second consecutive year and turned International Women’s Day into a month-long celebration of diversity and inclusion.
