Valued People Do Remarkable Things

A Culture Rooted In People Inspires Transformative Change

Love. Dignity. Respect.

Three Simple Words Can Transform A Culture

Value of the Person (VOP) isn’t a program. It’s a way of life, a continuous journey of individual and organizational change. Our grassroots approach to work and the workplace puts people first and values people for who they are, touching hearts and encouraging personal change. The goal: to drive transformational change throughout the organization by creating a culture of Love, Dignity and Respect.

Over 40 Years Of Transforming Organizations

It Began With One Foundry

In the 1970’s, Pittron Steel, a small foundry in western Pennsylvania, was spiraling towards bankruptcy. The company made Wayne T. Alderson, founder of Value of the Person, the Vice President of Operations. Alderson believed in a radical approach: putting people first because it is the right thing to do. Within 21 months, he built a team that became a family. Pittron experienced a dramatic turnaround, improving profits, quality and morale. The story of Pittron’s success became the template for a new vision for the workplace. There is a better way: the Value of the Person.
