Companies create mission statements as a sort of company definition. Mission statements describe why an organization exists, its overall goal, who its primary markets are and where they service.
Below, we’ve collected answers from 14 professionals who have shared their organizations’ mission statements and what it means for them.

“To drive integrity by being honest and transparent in every interaction.”
Our mission statement has guided our business from the very beginning.

At Spear, our mission is to help dentists and their teams pursue and achieve “Great Dentistry.” We do this by helping our doctors to do three things—achieve the clinical excellence they desire, achieve economic success in order to provide them with the flexibility to spend time on the highest level of patient care and to simply have more fun in practice. Our vision, “To be the market leader in clinical and practice growth technology solutions that help dentists and their teams deliver superior care to their patients,” fully supports this mission and our values, “Service-Oriented, Trustworthy, Responsible, Innovative, Vested and Empowering” dictates how we achieve our mission. All three aspects together form the core of who we are and why we exist.

Farmers Insurance’s ambition statement: We’re proud of more than 90 years of serving our customers and are excited about the future. Our ambition is to be the leader in delivering peace of mind, innovating for customers whenever and wherever they need us.
Amy Hart, Farmers Insurance
Our mission is to connect small businesses with customers, and to have a good time doing it. The statement is inspired by two statistics. The first stat is that about half of small businesses go out of business within their first five years. That’s what inspires us to connect small businesses to customers, because if they do a better job connecting, then there’s less business failure. The second stat from Gallup is that 52% of workers are “not engaged” with their work (another 13% are actively disengaged). We believe that if we can create a great workplace (have a good time connecting small businesses with customers), then we do our part of addressing workplace dissatisfaction.
Brett Farmiloe, Markitors
