The Why, The Where, and The How We Get There
We have finally reached the end of our road trip, and what a journey it has been! We presented our Mission, Vision, and Values, and how we exemplify them each and every day.
Our journey began with our Mission Statement. Mission statements show the heart of the company and why it exists. Our Mission Statement is “to equip and encourage leaders to make smart people decisions.” This defines why we exist and our Reason for Being. It’s not about the HOW, it’s about the WHY.
Next, we defined our Vision Statement. A vision statement is a company’s road map, indicating what the company wants to become by setting a defined direction for the company’s growth. At Achilles Group, we think of it as the pathways that lead us to where we are aiming to go. Our pathway to growth is “Giving HR a new name through a Professionally Human approach.”
The last stop on our trip was defining and determining our Core Values. Core values are the fundamental beliefs upon which your business and its behavior are based. They are the guiding principles that your business uses to manage its internal affairs as well as its relationship with customers. At Achilles Group, we think of core values as the way we behave on the trip. We believe that the core values we have listed below will help us in our journey.
Our 1st Core Value - Extending Grace
We believe in adding compassion back into business, regardless of your situation, while balancing accountability and business expectations.
Our 2nd Core Value - Genuinely Interested
We want to know the ins-and-outs of your story, how you operate your business, the successes you celebrate and the stresses that keep you up at night. We appreciate being part of your journey.
Our 3rd Core Value - Navigating The Gray
We recognize there is no one-size-fits-all approach to HR, only tailored solutions. Our Professionally Human approach acts as a guiding light through the gray, often murky waters of HR.
Our 4th Core Value - Diversity of Thought
We move beyond our individual filters to see the value in every person’s experiences, perspectives, and ideas. Together, we are Stronger, Smarter and Faster, providing our clients the fuel needed to drive smart people decisions and profitable business outcomes.
Thank you for following along with us on this road trip through what makes us, us. Our Mission Statement, Vision Statement and Core Values guide our thoughts and actions daily. They help us navigate through relationships, obstacles, and every part of what we do. No matter what kind of business you are in, Achilles Group has the skills and ambition to support you.
