Every person has something that motivates and drives him or her. The same is true for companies - or at least it should be, in our opinion. A good basis for this is a mission statement: a description for the company's self-image, basic principles and goals. A kind of compass for the future that provides answers to the questions of what we stand for, what we want to achieve, and how.
We have been living a common spirit as a team for a long time, even without ever having agreed on it verbally. But a mission statement goes even further: it provides employees with a framework and orientation for their work and shows customers and partners the values and demands of our company - in short, what makes us tick. We have grown and developed rapidly in recent years, so it was time to put our principles and values in writing. However, the development of a mission statement is not done on the drawing board by a single person - it is teamwork.
So last year, in a cross-departmental team of eight employees, we set out to formulate our corporate mission statement. After an initial meeting, we retreated for two intensive days to the beautiful Allgäu region of Germany, where, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we found the creativity and inspiration we needed to achieve the first major milestone: the development of a clearly formulated corporate vision. A vision as a picture of the future and a set of goals should motivate and inspire one's own employees and in this way can strongly influence the success of the company. In the process, we worked our way from the individual ideas of each team member to a shared vision. An exciting process in which we were once again confirmed how much we all pull together to achieve a goal.
We are a Swabian, internationally operating software company with the goal of optimizing processes in the healthcare sector in order to preserve and improve one of the most precious goods of mankind - health. In doing so, we remain authentic and make our decisions believing in ourselves and based on our ideals and values.
