Suite P-1, Annapolis, Maryland, 2140, USA Enhancing Communication and Improving Performance S 1808AI41 The government sector is challenged with deficits and cyclical political leadership changes. We help our clients articulate the public service value of their mission - and provide data to show that their work is making a difference in our communities and in our Nation as a whole. Saving lives and property from natural disasters by ensuring that there is safe drinking water -- making the government procurement process more efficient, transparent and fair – these are a few of the missions we support. As a business, our strategy is to help them “do more with less” – achieve the mission (and document its achievement) at a lower overall cost. OPP’s core values are: 1. Make a difference 2. Take care of each other (staff, clients, vendors) 3. Give back Here at OPP, we take our core values seriously. They are the touchstone from which we filter all decisions and actions. We have and will continue to advise our clients to use new methods and tools that automate tasks. For example, we automated reports for one client and cut the time from 40 hours to five. It resulted in less billable hours for OPP, however our client relationship is more important. Most of all, we value our role as a trusted advisor. Attracting and retaining the best staff is key to our long-term success. Our ideal candidate wants a job that makes a difference - they are drawn to public service. We take care of our staff with competitive pay, generous benefits and quarterly bonuses. Moving forward, we know that expert program management services and communications will continue to be needed far into the future. Over the years, both the tools and methods will change and evolve with technological advances. OPP will stay abreast of these so we can continue to make a difference, taking care of them and each other. And when we do, we will have the honour and privilege of giving back to those less fortunate in our community. That is a good life and a good career. bridge to better your Leading Strategic Communications Experts of the Year, Maryland
