“We have the opportunity to better ourselves in so many areas,” said Marissa Romano, Campaign Strategist at Leverage, “This place really sets us up for success no matter what path we’re on.”
In 2013, the Corridor Business Journal (CBJ) unveiled a new way to recognize businesses for their culture. Throughout the Eastern Iowa Corridor, companies of all sizes compete for the prize of “Coolest Place to Work.” Winners are recognized within small (1-20 employees), medium (21-99 employees) and large (100 or more employees) businesses. The crown jewel comes with the unveiling of the overall winner who can officially declare that they are the “Coolest Place to Work.”

But, this isn’t what makes Leverage so cool.
What’s So Cool About Leverage?
Leverage is not a consulting firm or run-of-the-mill marketing agency.
Each day, our sole purpose is to help other businesses achieve at a sustainably high level. Whether it’s creating a visually captivating video for an award nomination, or implementing an organizational health action plan that leads to a nomination in the first place– Leverage supports you in crafting a meaningful strategy, and also provides the tools, resources, expertise, and elbow grease to bring that strategy to life.
What makes Leverage so cool is the fact that we weren’t formed with hopes of being successful. We were formed because of success.
It’s our mission to work with humble intensity to be our best – seeking perfection and achieving excellence in our journey. And while we’re good at doing great things, we’re also great at doing hard things. Our continued streak of nominations as the “Coolest Place to Work” is a prime example of this.
It’s the reason we offer Leadership Development Workshops to businesses externally and why the Talent Enrichment piece of Leverage exists. We know that the way we work is as important as the work that we do.
“Clickstop and Leverage as an employer really care about their people,” Marissa explained. “And as their employees, we really care about our clients. We’re not in the business of doing the same as everyone else, we’re in the business of engaging, partnering, and investing in the success of our clients.”
When you work with Leverage, your business essentially becomes a part of Clickstop. And that’s a pretty cool opportunity for all.
