By: Naftali Garber 08/06/2015
One of the most important aspects of any business is how you position your mission statement, which is how your company conveys what they are passionate about and what they wish to achieve. Additionally, mission statements are frequently used to brand your company, further separating it from its competitors. That being said, taking the time to create an incredible mission statement is essential for your company to see further success. Here are a few companies that are succeeding by using and sticking to their mission statement:

Herag Haleblian, Founder and Managing Partner of KRE says their mission is focused on “the business aspect of project management and distinguishing ourselves from those that just get things done.

They offer a diverse platform of technology and methodology-based principles that enable intelligent communication, dialogue and relationships – all of which lead to real results.

Vayomar’s mission is “to help people deliver better messages so that they may achieve their specific goals,” says Gur Braslavi, Founder & Co-Owner. “We all have to communicate no matter where we live, but most of us do not possess the tools to clearly articulate want we want to say, we help people to clearly deliver their message and empower them to be heard.” Gur continues that “we live in a dynamic world that moves faster than ever, so don’t waste time building a 10 year plan--even conglomerates cannot build a strategy that extends further than 5 years. Focus your strategy on your mission and build actionable and concrete goals while focusing on solutions rather than problems.”

Tony Tregurtha, Co-CEO, Founder & President, says, “we don’t just sell software, we help companies achieve operational excellence. We believe that the process of planning is more important than the plan itself. As our market is evolving quickly, if we plan for years down the road, we will miss the opportunities available to us right now. Ultimately, we look to supply management with operational information about how well the company is performing on a day to day basis. From this, they can reduce costs and have the ability to understand and manage performance, this subsequently will boost employee engagement and happiness.”
