To have employees get some 'skin in the game', break them into small groups in a classroom setting (DON'T do this with 50 employees at a time). With the Mission and Vision statements in the front of the room in large print, ask employees to tell you in their words what each means to them personally. Record comments and post on wall in room. Then in small groups ask each team to come up with ways to make the statements a reality (e.g., have lunch n' learns for 50 mins and answer questions, offer insight into what company is doing to implement and stay true to each statement, or use real life cases to discuss ...
