One of the initiatives from the December 2011 leadership retreat was to evaluate the Division of Business and Financial Services mission, vision, and value statements that were developed over a decade before. The extended leadership quickly realized that this effort would take much longer than the hour and a half session that was scheduled and therefore created a committee formed ad hoc of division representatives to draft new statements for approval. Several drafts of the mission statement were presented to the extended leadership in March 2012 with the one that appears below being recommended.
The proposed mission statement was then presented to the individual departments that comprise the division during the following months for their approval. In addition, information on values and vision were solicited from all employees that led to the development of the following statements. These statements were approved by the extended leadership one year later at the December 2012 leadership retreat.
The addition of departmental commitment statements were suggested at the 2012 retreat as a way to reinforce the vision.
