The O.C. Tanner Institute has continued to find that employee appreciation significantly impacts the employee experience and workplace culture. But this year, we had a breakthrough: empirical evidence that a causal relationship exists between peer recognition and connection.

Join Dr. Alexander Lovell and Dr. Cristen Dalessandro, with moderator Meghan Stettler of The O.C. Tanner Institute as they reveal the results of a groundbreaking experiment and research study newly published in our 2022 Global Culture Report. Tune in to learn about:

• The Causal link between recognition and connection
• How you can elevate recognition in your organisation today
• The importance of micro-monetary and monetary recognition, and the associated impact on the individual and organisational outcomes
•The influence of employee personality on recognition preferences and impact
