CLA Guest Post- 5 Mistakes Organizations Make When Establishing Core Values

Today, we build on the two previous posts, on creating Mission and Vision Statements by discussing Core Values and creating your organization’s Value Statement, which completes the triad.

• Mission Statement

• Vision Statement

• Core Values Statement

Core Values focus on how you run your organization and interact with customers and suppliers. Not everyone possesses the same core values, so it’s important for an organization to stress what theirs are to employees, vendors, and customers at the onset of hiring, doing business, or providing a service.

As discussed in the last postOrganizations wanting to perform at the highest level do so by working to leverage 3 commitments. These commitments set the stage for overall efficiency, growth, and prosperity.

Great leaders vision-cast for their organization.

They have an idea of where they want their organization to be down the road. They chart their desired course ahead of time. The best leaders will map out their Vision, put this Vision on paper, and share their Vision with the entire crew. However, too many leaders fail to be precise—they don’t follow a top-notch process to ensure their Vision truly comes to fruition.

High employee turnover, expensive recruiting and hiring processes, and workplace inefficiency are common problems that make growth and prosperity difficult to achieve.

Founder and President of In HIS Name HR Mark Griffin says the key to overcoming these hurdles is knowledgeable leadership.

“Adopting the practices, programs, and techniques of some of the world’s biggest and most successful organizations will transform your company into a lean and efficient powerhouse,” Mr. Griffin says. “All this can be done in-house, potentially saving you thousands of dollars.”

Mr. Griffin explains that HR issues can cause irreparable damage, and it is imperative for the success of any business to address these problems in an effective way. The Human Resources Mastery Toolkit offers in-depth, step-by-step training that equips the user with the resources and tools to expertly correct operational problems and boost organizational performance.
