The Importance of a Mission Statement

Team in a huddle

  • “Keep it short and concise. Sum up the company’s reason for being in just a few statements.

  • Think long-term. The mission statement is an investment in your company’s future, so keep it open enough to reflect your long-term goals.

  • Motivate and inspire employee commitment.

  • Make it realistic and clear.

  • Avoid making the mission too narrow or too broad.

  • Specific, short, sharply focused, and memorable.

  • Say what the company wants to be remembered for.”
