MISSION AND PURPOSE NOT ONLY NECESSARY FOR COMPANY MISSION STATEMENTS
Larger employers today often have mission statements. At the same time, in today’s tight labor market, anything that will improve hiring and retention is considered important. One approach is to encourage employees to have a mission and purpose within the company.
Experts tell us that the more passion and purpose an employee brings to the job, the higher the performance level is. One of the best ways to bring passion and purpose is to help employees feel that they are helping other people, that other people need them and depend on their contributions. If an employer can create this attitude, the employee is happier on the job, more likely to stay, and more likely to do good work. It also makes the performance of the job more pleasant for the employee, and brings the employee more energy.
While this is a challenge for employers, many have found ways to show employees they are needed, they are helping other people, and the company depends on their contributions. The good news is that surveys found that this encouragement works in almost every industry or occupation.
