Are Mission Statements Still Relevant?

Are Mission Statements Still Relevant?

  • Meg Georkas

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.

The Ultimate Professional

Peter showed the utmost integrity, courtesy and professionalism in the selling of our home. He was never too busy to answer any question we had and kept us informed of all developments. We wouldn’t choose anyone else to look after our sale.

Exceptional advice, professional seller of our home

We have bought many houses, and sold many houses, but we could never imagine our home would sell so quickly. Peter reassured us from first inspection that he would find us the right buyer, the buyer who would love our home as much as we love it. Our home sold phenomenally quickly, the suited buyer was just around the corner! Peter was flexible with showing people through, and we really appreciated him touching base with us every step of the way. Thank you Peter, we couldn’t have asked for a better agent to work with us!
