Our mission at ORS is to design and build a better world by delivering sustainable solutions for our customers and creating a supportive workplace for our people. We operate in a unique work environment, growing sustainably, while enhancing our community and the lives of our people and their families.
At ORS, our leadership team is guided by our values of quality, sustainability, learning, communication and honesty. We are results and values focused, delivering on our promises to clients, applying creative thinking to develop original and practical solutions.
The firm has three sources of competitive advantage:
We are the only Irish consultancy offering this particular blend of services. Although some clients may only require one service at a particular time, the support from other specialist fields is of significant value. ORS appoints a Project Coordinator on projects that require multiple services from the firm. We do this to ensure the highest standards in quality and efficiency for the client.
We focus heavily on the client relationship, emphasising responsiveness and dependability of delivery, building long lasting relationships through investment in client events. This source of competitive advantage adds a strong subjective element to our brand.
We cultivate a unique work environment, centred around trust, autonomy, and flexibility. We have a low attrition rate and a strong organisational culture. Our brand is therefore appealing to a wider group of stakeholders, i.e. current and future employees, which translates to a more consistent service delivery.
