Chicago Tribune Names Origami Risk a Winner of Chicago Top Workplaces 2019 Award

CHICAGO, November 11, 2019 – Origami Risk, the industry-leading risk, safety and insurance Software as a Service (SaaS) technology firm, has been awarded Top Workplaces 2019 honors by The Chicago Tribune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”

In addition to a #6 ranking on the list of Chicago-area organizations with 249 or fewer employees, Origami Risk was also recognized with a special award for work-life flexibility based on standout scores for helping employees balance work and personal life.

“We’re honored to earn this recognition from The Chicago Tribune and Energage, particularly because it underscores our enduring commitment both to be an excellent business partner to all of our customers and to provide a stimulating and engaging work environment for all our colleagues,” said Jon Nichols, chief operating officer, Origami Risk. “We are well aware that our focus on consistently delivering the highest quality of customer service depends heavily on our ability to attract and retain the industry’s most talented people, as well as to support them with the environment, tools and culture they need to be successful.”

Origami Risk has received more than two dozen awards in the past decade for service excellence, innovation, workplace and technology. This month, Origami 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. The firm also has been recognized by Inc. magazine for each of the past two years both as one of the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies and as one of the “Best Places to Work.”

Earlier this year, Crain Communications ranked Origami Risk among the top companies to work for in Chicago; for several consecutive years, the firm has been recognized by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) as one of “The Nation’s Best and Brightest Companies To Work For®”; and Origami has repeatedly earned NABR’s awards for Chicago and Atlanta. This year also marked the fourth consecutive year Origami was named among Business Insurance magazine’s “Best Places to Work in Insurance.”
