Irish Times Names Origina One of Ireland’s Best Small Workplaces 2024

Company recognized among the country’s most positive work environments.


DUBLIN — March 27, 2024 — Origina, the global leader in IBM third-party software maintenance, has been named one of “Ireland’s Best Small Workplaces 2024” by the Irish Times.

This is the first year on the Irish Times ranking for the company. Origina placed number 25 on the list, which contains the companies that achieved the best ratings on the trust index of the Great Place To Work® survey.

“Being named as a top company is a validation of the hard work each of our employees contributes every day,” says Tomás O’Leary, Origina Founder and CEO. “It shows our employees love what they do, strive to do their very best, and work together as a team of one.”

The Great Place To Work organization has established trust as the main ingredient in building a quality workplace. The survey helps employers measure employee trust through five key indicators — pride, camaraderie, fairness, credibility, and respect — all of which must be present to build a positive corporate culture.

“This is a fantastic achievement for Origina,” says Human Resources Director Ross Lowe. “It illustrates the high degree of trust between our employees and their colleagues, as well as between employees and management. People believe in our mission and feel valued.”
