core values

OPPD employees do work every day guided by three simple words: honor, passion and care.

They represent the utility’s core values:

  • Honor our community
  • A passion to serve
  • Care about each other

Honor our community

Tim O’Brien, director of Economic Development and External Relations, and his son explain the important role electricity plays in making the community a better place for years to come

Passion to serve

Gina Langel talks about a core value that truly hits home for her and guides her daily work as manager of Continuous Improvement.

Care about each other

Reno Jameson, safety and technical trainer, set his sights on full-time employment at OPPD after seeing firsthand as a contractor how the OPPD work force rallies around each other. Hear his story below.

OPPD employees live out these core values in times of pressure, in their daily duties and in their volunteer work.
