I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

HawkSoft’s actions are governed by a set of six (6) core values established by our executive leadership team and developed from their collective years of life and business experience. These core values are used as the checks and balances for all decisions made at HawkSoft. If a decision won’t uphold the standards we have set for ourselves, it isn’t a decision we will accept. HawkSoft’s core values ensure we don’t lose our way even as we continue to see growth and success as a -year-old company.

HawkSoft’s Core Values are written in our employee handbook, and on walls on both the first and second floor of HawkSoft’s office in Canby, OR. Every new hire with our company meets our board of directors to review the purpose behind our values and why it’s critical to our company’s future. These are not just flowery words to us, they’re important beliefs woven into the fabric of our company and every employee.


Sense of Community

Here at HawkSoft we value family – not only our individual families, but also the HawkSoft family. That family includes co-workers, customers, vendors, and our surrounding communities. Because we recognize that customers and vendors have a hand in our success as much as we have in theirs, we want all our communities to feel the positive impact of being associated with HawkSoft.

We strive to make the work environment a place where groups of people work together to reach shared goals, and our families are valued and celebrated. Simply put, our most valuable assets are the people we surround ourselves with.

Deliver an Exceptional Experience

We seek to deliver a positive experience to our customers, co-workers, and business partners by focusing on our relationships. Our goal is to provide accurate, timely, and knowledgeable support with empathy, humility, and a focus on empowering the individual. We take the initiative to make things better by taking ownership of our work. HawkSoft has grown by word of mouth because we strive to make every experience an exceptional one.


For the Good of All

Decisions that balance everyone’s needs will lead to greater benefit for all in the long run. These decisions can only be made through an effective exchange of ideas in an environment of mutual trust, respect, and empathy, which amplifies and transfers our strengths. Through open communication and teamwork we can take advantage of our strengths, overcome limitations, and find solutions for the good of all.

Do the Right Thing

We conduct ourselves fairly and honestly. We honor our commitments with integrity and respect. Here at HawkSoft, we play by the rules, applying them consistently to ourselves and to others. We hold ourselves accountable, taking responsibility for our actions and decisions.

Ultimately, we do our best to do the right thing. By living this core value, we build positive relationships of trust which are vital to our success.


Work to Live, Don't Live to Work

HawkSoft measures itself by the success of its employees as well as that of its customers. Recognizing the value of family and the importance of a balanced life, we implement plans and strategies to balance the needs of employees and customers by setting realistic goals and expectations.

We encourage our employees to follow their work schedule, to strengthen their knowledge through education, and to be involved in activities outside of the work place. Happy employees result in happy customers.

Focus on the Solution

There will always be new needs to be met, technologies to be used, and opportunities for growth. Our eagerness to welcome and even to seek out change allows us to grow, improve, and stay ahead of our competition.

Our openness to change comes from an optimism that is infectious and fuels others. A positive, enthusiastic, and realistic attitude toward change and improvement will lead us to superior solutions. There are solutions for every problem, and focusing on the solution moves us to the future. By listening to our stakeholders’ real needs and encouraging an exchange of ideas, we find new solutions. Then we will do it all over again when change brings us new challenges.

The real magic is recognizing the possibilities and turning a challenge into an opportunity by focusing on the solution.
