Welcome to the most complete collection
of employee recognition tools for
celebrating daily wins and team building triumphs.
It’s smart. Powerful. Fun.


Victories comes in three distinct packages, offering scalable enterprise features to fit your organization’s needs and goals.

Victories Social

The essentials for building a thriving employee recognition program.

Features include

Spot & group recognition

Help spread recognition with hundreds of fun, creative eCards that make it easy for everyone to celebrate and encourage all the little wins on the way to the major accomplishments.

Social wall & languages

Make celebrations contagious by broadcasting accomplishments on a company-wide social feed, where everyone (or just some) can view, like, comment, and pile on the praise.

Victories can be deployed natively in 16 standard languages.

Notifications & reminders

Bolster participation with automatic prompts for employees, teams, and leaders when it’s been a minute since they’ve given recognition. Simply set the timeframe and choose the delivery method—email or in-app.

Reporting & analytics

Follow program activity, track top employees, keep an eye on budget and spend, manage comments, and much, much more.

Data privacy, single sign on, single user profile

Using industry-standard data privacy, Victories encrypts data both in transit and at rest.

View staff profiles to learn their company values and to retrieve data on recognition sent and received.

If your company uses SAML such as Azure, ADFS, Okta, Ping and others then you can connect your user directory with O.C. Tanner.

Data file import

Upload a spreadsheet to easily add users or update metadata.

Customer & IT success team

With a launch manager to project-manage and IT team for tech support, your program is sure to launch strong and thrive fast.

Multi-channel user support

Your staff can call, chat in-app, or email with any questions.

Client logo & canvas template

Make your recognition part of your culture by branding your program with your company logo and a complementary program template.


Additional customization and controls for a more powerful, personalized program.

All Social features plus

Role & approval-based recognition

Set up recognition for all users or for specific roles (like front-line, managers, directors, etc.). You can also add request-approval for specific types of recognition, whether by award level or monetary value.

Nomination system

Guided nomination prompts ensure the right award is given at the right time for the right reason using the built-in wizard.

Standard communication play library

Choose from templated communication campaigns to build awareness, encourage participation, and deepen understanding.

Initiatives, events, & group incentives

Allow admins to create tasks for employees that are related to safety, wellbeing, or other initiatives.

Events, created by either admins or managers, allow for RSVPs and automatic points deposits (based on RSVP type).

Group incentives make it easy to recognize team accomplishments with bulk points deposits.

3rd party integration

Give recognition from the apps and programs your employees use every day with APIs to connect your recognition program to your HRIS, intranet, wellbeing, performance management, referrals, or CRM software. Victories also integrates with Workday, Outlook, Sharepoint, Yammer, Slack, Workplace by Facebook, and many other collaboration hubs.

Manager dashboard for teams

Let managers and leaders keep a finger on the pulse of their teams’ recognition habits with activity notification emails and the ability to view relevant engagement and recognition information, even send recognition to entire teams.

iOS & Android

Send and receive recognition using an engaging, easy-to-use mobile app that also gives admins to track activity and guide their program appropriately.

Offline tools, award codes, & award certificates

Give all employees, even the ones with limited access to computers, the ability to send and receive meaningful recognition with offline tools like appreciation stations, reward books, on-the-spot reward codes, buttons, and a whole lot more.

System-generated award codes can be used in combination with offline tools for reporting, tracking, and control purposes.

Printable, customizable reward certificates make every offline recognition moment extra special.

Global Award Store

Thousands of award experience options (gift cards, merchandise, travel, charity) from the world’s top brands like Macy’s, Best Buy, Groupon, Starbucks, and more to be automatically redeemable by recognized employees.

An enhanced ordering experience to deliver automated and real-time award redemption. Address Verification is faster and more upstream than today’s redemption and includes worldwide address accuracy. Plus featured, recommended, and personalized products. And no lines at checkout.

Company rewards management

Insert your company rewards into Victories for management of quantities and redemption in exchange for recognition points.

How does O.C. Tanner save my company money?

We make awards available at market prices, so when your employees get to redeem their points, there is more budget and more awards. We charge a software fee and one-time implementation fee. On the whole, we deliver the industry's best value and most positive impact on workplace culture.    

Do you offer service awards?

Yes. We have a dedicated team of award experts to help you turn career achievements into lasting memories. We offer a comprehensive warranty on all awards and a 90-day no questions asked exchange policy.

What integrations and sign-on options do you have?

O.C. Tanner is compatible with HRIS systems and can streamline the process of importing employee data onto the platform. Integration is available through an API or SFTP method, and you can add additional metadata fields for advanced reporting abilities. O.C. Tanner supports SAML 2, and has various integrations with Workday, SAP, Outlook, Slack, PeopleSoft and others. Single sign-on is also an option.

Can employees add their own funds to their point balance when purchasing an item to make up the difference?

No. We help to make sure recognition is all about receiving a gift from the company, rather than having to purchase an award. Additionally, this approach makes it as easy as possible for companies to account for their investment, specifically when it comes to budgeting and reporting.

Is O.C. Tanner a good fit for my company?

O.C. Tanner fosters recognition-rich cultures primarily for large enterprises with 1,000 or more employees. Over 4,000 companies worldwide use our Culture Cloud suite to recognize great work, including Dow Chemical, U.S. Bank, Old Dominion Freight, and Siemens.

What ROI can I expect from O.C. Tanner?

Companies that use O.C. Tanner report higher employee engagement and productivity; individual employees report increased happiness and motivation. When employees are engaged, motivated and happy at work, turnover rates decrease significantly. Companies typically spend more than twice the value of an annual salary to fill highly-skilled roles. By directly addressing the factors that contribute to turnover, O.C. Tanner is an investment in your employees that supports your bottom line.

How much do awards cost?

We don't include awards in your subscription fee, because you only pay for awards when your employees redeem their Victories points. This means you don't have to pay a lot up front to get the program started, and you'll never pay for any unused monthly allowance. When your employees redeem points for awards from the Global Award Store, you'll pay market prices.
