Risk technology firm among highest-scoring businesses, with standout employee engagement
CHICAGO, May 19, 2020 – Origami Risk, the industry-leading risk, safety and insurance Software as a Service (SaaS) technology firm, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. In gaining this recognition by Inc. for the third consecutive year, Origami Risk now has earned more than two dozen workplace awards in recent years. The honors reflect its ongoing commitment to hire and retain the insurance industry’s top talent to provide the highest level of service to its customers.
Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 389 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then they ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“We’re honored to earn this recognition from Inc. magazine; it underscores our enduring commitment both to be an excellent business partner to all our customers and to provide an empowering, fulfilling and collaborative work environment for all our colleagues,” said Jon Nichols, president, Shared Services division, Origami Risk. “Origami’s strategy to attract, retain and engage the industry’s most talented people has helped us drive steady innovation, generate superior outcomes for clients, and achieve a rapid rate of organic growth.”
Notably, Origami recently teamed with its customers to launch a series of online solutions to help them address issues arising from COVID-19, including a suite of specialized tools for the healthcare sector. Earlier, Origami continued its expansion with a new division focused on serving property-casualty insurance companies, third-party administrators, managing general agents, government pools and entities with large self-administered workers’ compensation plans.
Listed as one of the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies in 2019, Origami also ranked among Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America.
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 100 percent provide health insurance.
- 50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
