It Looks Good On Paper

Many companies greet new employees with a binder containing rules, regulations, and expectations the new associate should adhere to. Typically, on the first few pages, a company mission statement is displayed outlining the reason for the company's existence, and will almost always boast the corporation's dedication to the consumer. At first glance, this impressive arrangement of words and promises causes the reader to feel proud of being a team player in such an organized and focused firm. In reality, I'll bet nobody actually remembers the mission statement of their employer, or even a small portion of it, off the top of their head ... so what's the point? Many Americans don't even know their own national anthem ... how could anyone ever expect them to memorize company propaganda?
