For instance, hugely successful companies such as Pizza Hut and Whole Foods have begun to use bots. They implemented them to provide superior customer service and create a new consumer buying experience.
When large businesses see the benefits and advantages of using chatbots, others follow suit.
There’s no denying that bots can offer tremendous benefits to companies and businesses. Those who choose to ignore the benefits and not stay up to date with the newest technology may find themselves behind their competition.
What’s your take on businesses using bots? In your opinion, what are the pros and cons?
Your story must be plausible, and revolve around why you exist, how you treat your employees (temps, interns, traditional staff), and why you do what you do.
They can reflect your short term or long term goals – but choose only one. It sounds simple, but communicating it effectively to your audience can be tricky.
Make it succinct and to the point. Keep it between 1-2 sentences. For instance, Nike’s mission is summed up in one sentence: “To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world” – to them everyone is an athlete.
They Provide Value
Part of running a successful startup or small business is being able to give value through your products or services.
You need to communicate the value you can provide your potential customers with your mission statement. What is your mission, your purpose, the drive behind running your company? Include it in your mission.
Readers should take away why your company and mission are valuable.

We’ve all known at least one or two people in our life, whether at work or personally, who like to gossip about others. In other words, they love getting the “dirt” on others for entertainment.
Gossipers are terrible for employee morale, they don’t value their co-workers, and it can lead to issues and drama in the workplace.
They’re more interested in talking about others, rather than focusing on their work. And worse, you can’t trust them. They could very well be stirring up drama based on lies about management, supervisors, and other employees.
Like the gossip-loving employee, storytellers love to tell stories or make up excuses about everything. They will have a new reason every week to why their assignments are always late.
This type of employee is especially problematic because they lie. They’re more concerned with self-preservation and do not care about you, your staff, and your business.
Their lies and damage to your company will only increase. Plus, they never take responsibility for their actions, and it’s never their fault. You can’t trust them.
Chronic Bad Decision Making
Everyone makes mistakes. No one is perfect, and your employees will make mistakes. Sometimes, they’ll make bad decisions. However, that doesn’t automatically mean they are a problem employee.
A problem employee is someone who continually makes bad choices that harm your company and their coworkers.
This can usually be fixed. But if the employee frequently repeats the same mistakes, isn’t open to constructive criticism or feedback, doesn’t recognize their error, or has a natural inclination to repeat the wrong decision again, you’ll have more problems and a harder time getting to the bottom of it.
