The very best workplaces have a straightforward, concise mission statement that is readily understandable and enthusiastically embraced by each and every employee. Such great workplaces have carefully identified those factors critical to their long-term success, as well as their specific vision for the future. Great facilities develop detailed action plans and accompanying areas of responsibility to ensure that their vision for the future is concrete, actionable, measurable and achievable.

2. Forward-thinking, creative senior management and a caring, well-trained staff.
