    Our Culture

     

    There's more to Genesee Lake School than competitive pay and benefits.  Genesee Lake School is part of ORP, a 100% employee-owned organization that transforms lives.  We do this by offering residential, educational, vocational, and respite services.

     

    At ORP, we support an ownership culture throughout the organization.  Our culture is based on our five Beliefs and Behaviors:  Passion - Accountability - Teamwork - Openness - Continuous Learning and Innovation

     

    Each year, after your first year of employment with us, you will receive a part of your income in ORP stock, making you an employee owner.  This stock allocation is a company-funded benefit--no investment from the employees is required.  Yet, employee ownership goes beyond simply stock.

     

    As an employee owner, you can expect transparency, respect, and appreciation.  You'll impact the place you work and map a career within Genesee Lake School or other ORP companies.  With your passion and our breadth of services, your options are nearly limitless!
