Week 5: Portfolio Milestone: Purpose Statement (50 points of the final Portfolio grade)
Most of us are aware of the term “purpose statement” but are unsure of its real meaning within an organization. It is a statement describing the organization’s purpose, or the reason for its existence. The purpose of an organization reflects a desired position in the marketplace. It should accurately answer to the questions below. The purpose statement is the written summary of those answers.
- Who are we? We are three capable, caring, professional women.
- What do we do? Provide counseling services
- For whom do we do this? Elderly adults 65+ years of age.
- How do we know when we are getting it done? When clients achieve optimal levels of wellness.
The purpose statement is the written summary of those answers. The most effective purpose statements are short, concise, and direct. A good purpose statement is between 2–3 sentences.Answer the four questions above and create a purpose statement for your HR department. Submit the answers to the four questions and the purpose statement to your instructor for review.
We are three nurturing highly educated women committed to empowering elderly adult clients 65+ years of age, to make informed, positive life choices, take responsibility for self-care, and achieve optimal levels of wellness in order to reach their full potential at their individual stage in life.
NOTE: At this stage, you will need to name your company and decide the service they provide or products they manufacture.
