Human Resources

Origo employs a talented group of people who believe that better technology improves lives. Everything we do is done by people, in collaboration with people and for other people. In human resources, we focus on offering a first-class work environment that promotes well-being and employee innovation.

It is our goal to increase diversity among the staff, increase the number of women in IT and hire more young and aspiring people.

Human Resources

The core of our HR

Social activities

We employ a diverse and vibrant group of people who make Origo a more fun place to work. There are various events available for employees all year around which are either organised by Origo or by the Origo employee association, STARIGO.

 

These include the annual celebration, family day, Easter bingo, Christmas events, a Halloween party, and various club activities.

Career development

Origo aims to offer targeted career development which involves advancing employees' skills and may include long-term development, e.g. changed tasks or job responsibilities, or transfer to another position.

 

We also offer our staff a broad range of courses, both remote and in-person. Moreover, we support and encourage our staff to take initiative and responsibility for their own knowledge and skills.
