3-Part Series: Strengthening Workplace Community with the 2023 Global Culture Report

Join thought leaders from the O.C. Tanner Institute for part two of our three-part webinar series exploring in-depth insights from the recently released 2023 Global Culture Report.

As the business landscape adjusts to new models of work and continued workplace changes, having a strong workplace community is more important than ever. Evolving organizations that prioritize employee belonging and connection will be ideally positioned to optimize their talent and lead out on industry-changing innovation.

In part two of the series, Dr. Alexander Lovell of the O.C. Tanner Institute shares his insight on how organizations can leverage culturally aligned integrated recognition with meaningful symbolism to create unparalleled employee experiences. Our research reveals that while high-recognition integration is rare (only 21% of workplaces rank as high-recognition integration cultures), organizations can take small steps today, to increase the frequency and reach of recognition.

Learn more about:

  • The role of employees' past experiences and memories in shaping their perception of your recognition program, culture, and employee experience
  • How to overcome previously poor experiences by integrating recognition early and often into onboarding, company-wide experiences, and throughout their employee experience
  • Why symbolic items are not “stuff,” and how carefully curated collections of symbols amplify the effect of recognition on the business outcomes you care most about
