Are Mission Statements Still Relevant?

Are Mission Statements Still Relevant?

I recently read an article about Mission / Vision Statements and whether they’re still relevant to modern business. The article discussed whether your company’s mission, vision and values influence how you actually do your work every day? It got me thinking that I haven’t read my company statement lately and when I did read it, I was pleased to see it’s still very relevant to the way we “do” business.

It’s easy to dismiss the real value of mission statements. After all, most companies have one, and they all say the right things about management’s concern for customers and employees etc. But in the daily grind to meet business targets and respond to competitors within our industry, it’s easy to get bogged down and forget to check in with what we do best.

I’ve included the HH Real Estate statement below. It was written about 18 years ago when Peter first came into the company. When we became a part of this business and then sole owners, of course one of our main goals was to have a successful business. But, we also understood that we wanted to be completely immersed in our town; after all we were raising our kids here and we wanted to be a part of this fabulous community. It was important that we could operate within an emotional industry with integrity. I’m proud to say our statements are is still relevant today.

Absolutely Brilliant!

Peter comes as a highly recommended and well regarded sales agent. The first time you meet Peter you get a sense of professionalism and honestly that is invaluable when buying or selling a home. Peter's vast knowledge of the local area is clear from the onset, leaving you with no doubt that Peter is well versed in all the properties he sells. What we liked most about Peter was his honest and upfront approach; there are no surprises here, Peter is as he is described; personable, reliable, true to his word and extremely trustworthy. Thank you so much Peter for guiding us through our first home purchase.

My experience with Peter as sales agent was as good as I expected!

Peter was very clear in what I could expect from the sale of my property. He explained any difficulties which might occur, as well as all possibilities. His knowledge and handling of all matters involved was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other clients.

Excellent sales experience

Clear communication, helpful and always professional.
During the process of selling our home we felt supported.
The sale occurred more quickly and for the asking price so the presale assessment was very accurate.
Will be recommending Peter and his team to other people.
