What is our mission statement in your mother tongue?

The process of creating ownership to our new mission statement among the employees is going forward. 14 colleagues from different countries have taken on the challenge of translating the mission statement into their own mother tongue. The video shows the linguistic diversity in our workplace. Together we are NHH.

All 14 had to take a few minutes to think carefully before they landed on how they would formulate the mission statement in their mother tongue. They considered various alternatives, consulted dictionaries and googled before they found the best translation.

We learn best in our native language, research shows. We remember more easily and take on more quickly what we learn in our own language. This is also the case with the new mission statement.

There are far more languages among our colleagues than those featured in this video.

Last week NHH's new mission statement was launched at Paraplyen. We asked some key employees to say the mission statement. Watch the video to hear the answers we got. What about you - do you know it?

The organisation has now voted for NHH's new mission statement, and we now have the result. As we remember four alternative mission statements were shortlisted based on input from employees, students and the board.
