Beth Thornton
EVP, Sales & Business Development One of the things I’m most proud of about what we do at O.C. Tanner is that we don’t have a one size fits all strategy. All of the innovations that we roll out to the marketplace, they’re grounded in research. The first thing we do is seek to understand. Sometimes it’s research that we do, sometimes we hire a third party just to make sure we’re not clouding it with an O.C. Tanner lens.

Christina Chau
Manager, Research Services
At O.C. Tanner, our research really seeks to understand why employees come to work, what do they really want out of work, what do they want from their managers, what makes them function, what makes them want to be engaged and want to do great work. It really is, what makes that employee tick? 

David Sturt
EVP, Marketing & O.C. Tanner Institute
A huge portion of the value we get out of the research, it’s not just the independent insight where we get to go, wow that’s fascinating. But where we take it to the next level is when we take that research and those insights and actually inform the products and services that we then cater and craft for our clients….

Christina Chau
Manager, Research Services
A lot of our clients actually come to us with research requests. We want to help our clients succeed and be successful, and so we go in really aching to, to find the answers and to make a solution that’s meaningful to their employees.

David Sturt
EVP, Marketing & O.C. Tanner Institute
The research actually becomes foundational and makes its way all the way into the products and services. So that then when an individual understands the impact that they can make, and then the recognition is actually tied directly to those behaviors that you’re seeking, you bring it all together in a powerful way that you just can’t get to with just an insight on its own or just a product or service on its own. When you bring those two together, it creates a power for our clients that is extraordinary.
