English term or phrase:sobering thought
Because of an environment where values are tested by hostile economic conditions, it is a very responsible thing to translate a vision such as ours from the original concept of our founder, into the modern business world. Translating this vision means rendering into another age the thoughts and values of our company’s founder.
That is a sobering thought for each of us. As stewards of ABC's vision, all of us in the organization who respect the values of our company, feel a special responsibility to transmit ABC’s vision, values and mission to our customers as accurately as possible. Each of us is accountable to the employees, temporary and full time, who depend upon us to remain true to these values for their career advancement.

L'extrait est long, mais il est nécessaire pour comprendre l'idée.
