Best and Brightest – Origami Risk

January 10, 2017

The National Association for Business Resources (NABR) runs an Education and Recognition Program called Best and Brightest, designed to improve businesses:

By making a company better, we make the lives of their employees richer and positively impact the community as a whole. This is what makes us different, we make you better.

Every year they do a Best and Brightest survey of companies. It’s an anonymous survey of all the employees in the company. First they do it regionally. Origami Risk has large offices in Chicago and Atlanta and we were happy to receive the Best and Brightest award for both of those offices.

The national awards just came out. The NABR named 101 companies across the country as Best and Brightest. Origami Risk is one of them. On top of being named one of the best places to work by Business Insurance, this caps off a great year.

At Origami our employees are empowered to make decisions and changes that help our clients directly. It’s not complicated really. When it’s obvious your work makes a difference, you are happier at work.
