Once a year, Opportunities for Positive Growth comes together to celebrate the gems of our organization- our people. This event, aptly named Day of Greatness, is a day of honoring the men and women who make our organization standout among competitors. Their dedication to the individuals, community and each other are what makes OPG strong. Today we look back on this year's event; highlighting our teams and having fun. This is how we celebrate GREATNESS.
On September 15th, 2017, we held our annual Day of Greatness at Conner Prairie. The space was perfect, and allowed us to set up our committee booths outside of the ballroom, giving us a more intimate feel. The Conner Prairie team did a marvelous job setting up! Soon, our teams from all offices were pouring in; sharing hugs and handshakes, and getting to know the new faces in the room. The vibe was joyful. What a way to kick things off!
The day was filled with presentations and conversations. Our own Dr. Lucy Lund, was the Keynote speaker. During her presentation, Lucy provided information needed concerning the state of Direct Support by providing evidence from the past, present and future. It was truly an inspirational moment, and many walked away with a deeper understanding of the work they do everyday. At OPG, we are change agents; we don't accept the status quo, we re-invent and re-imagine on a daily basis. On this day, a powerful moment was shared among like-minded individuals. Just another example of our "greatness".
All of that sharing and discussing drives an appetite, and oh how we treat our teams! From an array of coffee and juices, to a delectable dessert spread, we had it covered! Our teams were the VIP's and we treated them like it! Again, OPG Inc., would like to thank the amazing staff at Conner Prairie for ensuring excellence in execution.
Our employees aren't just working for OPG, they're owners! As an ESOP company, we encourage our teams to get involved and become educated about our company. At Day of Greatness, we set up booths to get information out to our teams in a fun way. With games, contests and giveaways, every booth wants to take home the coveted prize of "most popular". Take a look at a few of our favorites!
At OPG, we have several people that go above and beyond on daily basis. During the conclusion of Day of Greatness, we honored those who make an impact in the following ways: Contributing to the Life of a Person, Community Involvement or Employment, and Contributing to the Value of the Company. This year, we had an overwhelming response of nominees, making the task of selecting three from each category laborious, but meaningful. In the end, we had our winners. Our CEO, Gail Kahl handed out certificates to our nominees. What a way to end the day!
A great day was had by all. See you next year!
