Test It

If you're revamping your statement, don't blindside your employees with the new message; test it out on them first. Distribute drafts of the mission statement to every employee, and ask them what, if anything, should be added or changed. Not only will you get a better, more comprehensive statement, but your employees will be more invested in it because they helped form it. Your mission statement needs to accurately reflect your company, and being transparent with your employees will help create a great message.
