All Star Directories Code of Conduct
Guiding principles for what we expect of employees
As a general guideline, we treat others the way they want to be treated. Represent All Star well, whether you’re interacting with coworkers, clients, vendors, contractors, or our users.
- Be your authentic self
We encourage you to speak your mind and bring your unique perspective to solutions in your day-to-day work. What you bring to the table matters and contributes to the greater good.
- Be inclusive
Come to the table with an open mind, creative solutions, and an attitude that embraces our differences. Without bias, we welcome, value, and respect all people.
- Be understanding and kind
Empathize and demonstrate an acceptance of others. People may come to work with personal or other life circumstances we may not be aware of. Acknowledge people generally have the best intentions in their actions.
- Cooperate and collaborate
Remember that we’re all in this together. Your role is important, and others may be dependent on the work you do. Take time to share knowledge and support colleagues who may need a deeper understanding of your area of expertise.
- Respect others
Words are powerful so we request that you use them wisely. Be mindful of what you say, so your words don’t insult or minimize someone. Be aware of any unconscious bias or microaggressions you may bring into the workplace and avoid such behavior. Seek education or guidance if you are unsure.
- Disagree respectfully
Disagreements are inevitable, but we expect disputes to be worked through in a civil manner. Be empathetic as to where a person is coming from, and how their experiences led them to this point of thinking. Demonstrate patience to reach an optimal solution.
- Share your struggles
Please communicate roadblocks in a constructive manner. Don’t be afraid to talk about failures as well as wins—it’s all part of our commitment to continuous improvement and growth. Your colleagues may have helpful solutions and perspectives.
- Give credit where credit is due
Recognize team members when they do good work, even if it doesn’t directly affect you. Individual contributions make up the whole and inspire confidence, pride, increase motivation, encourage inclusion and create unity. We are each other’s biggest cheerleaders.
