Our Culture

Our Culture Defines our Success

At Origin, everything we do matters: that's the difference. There are no unimportant details. How we answer the phone, how we respond to emails, and how we help our teammates is how we get things done in a way that builds a company people want to be a part of and do business with. Our outlook shapes our culture and our culture shapes our outlook. Together, they create success. And passion succeeds at Origin Bank.

Creating Opportunities to Give Back

“One of our core values is ‘individual and corporate commitment to our communities.’ For Origin, this means more than fancy words that are written to impress our stakeholders. Much more. Each year Origin’s Project Enrich program gives our employees up to 20 hours of paid time off to volunteer at an organization of their choice in our communities. Food banks, after-school clubs, financial literacy groups, disaster clean-up projects and poverty relief organizations are just a few of the community organizations that benefit from our employees’ physical efforts to help their local neighbors. This is all in addition to the annual monetary gifts from our employees given to these and other organizations. Enriching our communities is an organic overflow of the vibrant culture we enjoy as Origin employees.”

Supporting our teams to support our communities

Enriching the lives of the people in our communities is important to us, and so is enriching the lives of the people who work at Origin. We believe supporting our team leads to team members supporting those around them. We focus on “whole person” development, not just the “worker” aspect of our employees’ lives. Through the Dream Manager Program®, Origin helps our most valuable resource—our people—become the best versions of themselves. Over the course of a voluntary 12-month series of monthly meetings, employees are supported in developing self-awareness in the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of their lives. In addition, the program helps them identify personally meaningful goals and dreams—and achieve them. Many companies talk about employee engagement.We actually live it.
