Recognize the value of the individual.

Principle #3
Recognize the value of the individual.

By: Vinay Shah, Senior Member of Technical Staff

In a crisis, your family is your backbone and support system to rely on as you navigate through the rough waters. During difficult times, we realize how much our family and friends really mean to us. I am very fortunate to have two families: My blood-related family, and my OPEX family.

When my own family went through a crisis, my OPEX family was there for us the entire way. The Stevens family sent flowers to the hospital. My colleagues and superiors always made sure to ask how my wife was doing and if I needed anything. Despite their busy schedules and ownership status, Mark and Dave Stevens made sure to obtain regular updates about my wife’s condition.

This is not out of character for OPEX. This is a company that is dedicated to recognizing every individual and supporting them through thick and thin. It has been heartwarming to see how OPEX employees are willing to help others overcome tragic events that occur from time to time, such as the passing of loved ones, house fires, and family health crises. Whether it’s offering financial support, moral support, or flexible hours, OPEX is always there to help.

OPEX leadership excels at caring for their employees, and I am blessed to be a part of a great organization with great people.
