Poll: Company mission statement, part II — adherence


BIRMINGHAM — In the last Cleanfax poll, we asked whether your company had a mission statement; in the newest poll, we ask how closely you stick to your company’s mission statement.

Mission statements — the written statement of a company’s purpose — are usually established early in a company’s creation and updated occasionally to evolve with changes within the company over time while still adhering to the same principals.

Sometimes confused with vision statements, mission statements lay out how you will meet goals and what sets the company and its team apart from others, whereas vision statements look to the future, aim to inspire and should not change.

Often mission statements are “out of sight, out of mind” once the business really gets rolling, but it is important to the image your company portrays to customers that it reflects its mission statement in its actions.

Take part in our mission statement adherence poll here:

How much does your company live by its mission statement?

  • Everything we do is a reflection of it. (55%, 12 Votes)
  • We don't have a mission statement. (27%, 6 Votes)
  • We try to reflect it in our actions when possible. (14%, 3 Votes)
  • We don’t often think of how our actions reflect upon it. (5%, 1 Votes)
  • Other. (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 22
