Abstract. The article presents a case study of the practical use of BOST surveys to identify the most important areas in the functioning of enterprise in perception of the company mission by their employees. This is an important element in the consciousness of the worker and is part of the delegation and self-organization to the lowest level. The research object is company from food industry. Some production workers of the company with the help of BOST questionnaire survey showed, which factors are the most important. Based on the survey results of carried out on the population of production workers, a series of importance areas for improvement was formulated. The aim of the analysis is to present which factors are the most important by building the significance sequences of obtained results. The results obtained for the type of small and medium-sized enterprises overlap with the results of tests verified in other enterprises.
