Now is the time to “thank them all” by creating recognition experiences that are heartfelt, fun, and memorable. After all, research shows that when organisations celebrate together, employees are 20X more likely to feel connected and want to stick around*.

Join Meghan Stettler of the O.C. Tanner Institute, along with Sandra Christensen, VP of Awards, and Courtney Stookey, Client Strategist, as they explore strategies to create impactful employee celebrations.
