You may be a business owner commanding the helm of your ship. You may have visions of businesses dancing in your head.
That's all well and good, and very entrepreneurial. Do you have a mission statement, and if so, what is it? If you don't have one, why not.
The mission statement is very important as it attracts your client base, and tells them what your company stands for. Almost like your "story".
Studies show that employees who know, and most importantly understand the mission and goals of their firm are more in tune. Meaning, everyone is on the same page and the company reaps a great return on investment - its people.
Putting together a mission statement is not as difficult as one would think. Ask yourself these simple questions:
- What do we do? Very important because if you don't know what your company does, well..........
- How do we do it?
- Who are we doing it for?
Set aside some time to really focus on the questions. Bring a team together to collaborate.
Who knows, your company mission statement may inspire an up and coming business owner. What's your mission?
