Diversity as a Strategic Advantage
At Opus Bank, we recognize the value of community and the importance of having a strong social fabric that binds people together, especially in the workplace. We understand that by tapping into the unique experiences and perspectives of our diverse workforce, we gain a strategic advantage in the market, which we firmly believe has a direct benefit to profitability and enhancing shareholder value.
Our Diverse Workforce
Since our founding in 2010, Opus has been committed to promoting and maintaining diversity and inclusiveness among all of our team members. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is evidenced by the composition of our workforce, including members of our senior management team. As of December 31, 2017, women comprised 51% of Opus’ entire workforce. Additionally, women comprised 36% of Opus’ management team, which includes individuals with the title of Vice President and higher.
In order to enhance the diversity of our workforce and assure it remains as diverse as possible, we consistently aim to engage highly qualified individuals that will enhance Opus’ diversity in terms of race, gender, national origin, ethnic background, skills, experience and expertise. As of December 31, 2017, minorities comprised 38% of Opus’ workforce.
Diversity Enables Growth
Our diverse workforce enables us to be a true partner for growth with all of our clients and continues to foster a corporate culture that embraces and is reflective the communities we serve.
However, embracing and promoting diversity in the workplace is not our only or final goal. It’s a journey. We continually strive to be a leader in promoting the benefits of diversity and inclusiveness within the banking industry and among our clients in the West Coast markets we serve.
