Why are Vision & Values still important?

Why are Vision & Values still important?


As an expert working with Small – Medium businesses I am constantly banging the drum to encourage business owners to actually take the time to establish their Vision, Mission and Values as this forms such an important foundation to build their whole people strategy on.

Much as trends come and go, this isn’t one of them – why?

  • Your Vision is where the business is heading, what do you want to be famous for in your world. If this isn’t a message shared with your team then how on earth can you move towards achieving this?
  • Your mission is how you intend to get there – what is important to you in how you do business and how your customers really feel about your company?
  • Your values are the standard you want to hold dear. This is something every single member of your team should understand and be held accountable to.

When I deal with the frustrations Business Owners have with their staff, it is often because their teams do not share the same drive, passion and direction but perhaps this is because they have never been told what the big picture is and how they fit into this.

Once you have a clearly defined Vision and work through to establish your values then this should cascade in every aspect of your business.

If you are not sure how to start the journey to establish your own Vision and Values, then talk to us about our People Plan Programme which is designed to help you with just that and more.

Sarah and the team at Quest have provided us HR support since January 2013.

Quest Consulting Services provided us with a comprehensive employment structure with contacts and a handbook and have been on hand to help me deal with the occasional issue I have faced with team members through their telephone support service.

As our personal Consultant, Sarah provides a quality, professional and complete service which is great value for money.

Sarah has transformed our HR and has introduced systems that have taken lots of hassle away from staffing issues within our company.

We have worked with Sarah and her team for 5 years and in this time our business has grown considerably. With telephone support available for all our Managers as they need it plus Sarah and her team proactively keeping us updated on changes in legislation we are reassured that we are in safe hands.

The HR software that Quest implemented also helps us keep on top of the routine aspects of HR such as holiday bookings, recording absence, holding personnel records which then allows Sarah and her team easy access to give us relevant advice.

Our Managers have also benefited from workshops run by Sarah to help develop their skills on handling issues such as disciplinary, appraisals, recruitment etc….

The support of Quest is invaluable and provides a much more cost effective solution than employing a HR Manager in house.

Why would anybody NOT have Sarah working 'alongside' their business?

I've known Sarah for many years and she's always been there for me and the business when her wealth of knowledge has been called upon.

We have used Sarah and her team to handle our contracts, handbook and Health & Safety and they are readily available on the telephone when needed or on site at our premises.

Highly recommended.
