A company profile should contain key information about the company including its history and purpose. Elements of a company profile may also include a mission statement and list of awards or certifications.

A company profile often includes a mission statement that states the purpose of the company. It could also include an overview of the company's products or services. In addition to information about the history of the company, the profile may contain biographical information about the company's leaders. Policies related to social responsibility and company culture could also be added.

The length of a company profile is dependent upon how much information the company decides to share and the purpose of the company profile. For example, a company profile that will be provided to the media for inclusion in an article may be shorter than the company profile presented on the organization's website.
