A vision is a mental picture or representation of where you want to be in the future. A mission statement is a clear, concise statement of what you want to achieve in your business. A company’s vision and mission statement are important because they provide a framework for all the activities that take place within the organization. It helps everyone understand how they can contribute to the success of the company. In order to create and maintain a positive work environment, companies need to implement positive behaviors such as teamwork, quality, customer first, safety and integrity into their daily operations.
