You may find it hard to improve your company's performance and success if you don't also incorporate the mission. However, employee engagement will increase when you promote the mission in times of change.
Why is your mission important?
Your mission should be what drives your team on a daily basis. Your mission is all about business and it must be a reflection of your organization's strategy, reinforced by your value proposition, and
substantiated by hard facts and results.
You mission will attract talent. It should be easily articulated by all members of your team and should resonate with new hires that you recruit. When the mission is delivered correctly, a job seeker will easily understand how they can contribute to the organization and make an impact. In today's workplace, colleagues need to understand how they can make a difference.
While it might be general, the mission should be measurable and have enough specificity that you can identify progress over time.
