Lucas Organizational Performance Team (OPT), a division of local project services leader Lucas Engineering and Management Services, Inc. (Lucas), rebranded for 2021, highlighting the growth the organizational performance improvement services that developed over the past ten years. “I’m extremely proud of the team we’ve assemble for our Organizational Performance Team,” states Ken Lucas, CEO & President. He continues, “2020 was extremely challenging for our clients as they struggled with many of the same challenges we did. What our team has accomplished last year will only continue into this new year.”
Last year started with the grand opening of the Richland training facility. The pivot from in-person development, assessments and mentoring to virtual, happened quickly. “We were not immune to the effects of last year. Our specialists, who thrive in the personal nature of our work, had to adjust to be effective. The launch of this re-branded Lucas OPT is our success story,” says Chris Lucas, VP & COO.
The spaces in which OPT specialize are present in every organization. “We have the language we’ve been looking for to describe the OPT. Our clients have always understood our capabilities, now the larger environment, safety, health and quality (ESH&Q) ecosystem can access our information,” continues Chris. With over 80 active employment opportunities locally in ESH&Q, the need to develop talent has never been more apparent.
Lucas has the tag line Performance Delivered. This tag line reflects our over 25 year commitment to providing our clients high-performance services in engineering, project/construction management, operations, and environmental services on a variety of public and private high-risk projects. Building on this real-world experience Lucas’ OPT is now Driving Performance by serving as catalysts for change within their client’s existing organizations. “Our clients know their business inside and out. Often an outside catalyst is what is needed after an adverse event happens, or quality controls marks are not met, to look at the 10,000-foot view of a process and determine where improvements can be made. We don’t make the improvements; we provide our clients with a path to excellence. It is up to them to deliver their own performance,” concludes Ken Lucas.
The OPT promises an exciting year to come with the introduction of regular free to the public training check-ins on topics surround Human Performance Improvement (HPI), Conduct of Operations (ConOps), safety, organizational culture, and First Aid.
