Ask any teenager who is on the verge of launching his career, what would be his dream job. I can bet on the fact that most of them would utter the names “Google”, “Microsoft”, “Apple”, “Facebook” and etc. But why do people aspire to join these organizations? Is it only because of the pay scale? Or is it because of the facilities they provide?
The answer is none of the above. The reason why people find companies like these attractive is due to the fact that they are mission driven. What does that mean? These companies have a particular goal to achieve. According to that, they shape the mindset of its employees. It has been found out that organizations which are mission driven have 40% more employee retention rate than its competitors.
