Budget for Impact—and Dispel the Ghosts of Recognition Past

Meghan Stettler, Sandra Christensen, and Hannah Lawrence of O.C. Tanner

Budget for Impact—and Dispel the Ghosts of Recognition Past

Poor recognition experiences of the past can impact the effectiveness of new recognition. But the good news is you can offset the poor experiences that still haunt your organization.

With a new year right around the corner, how can you prepare to celebrate your people while creating meaningful memories? How much should you spend? How often you should you recognize? In a first-of-its-kind experiment, the O.C. Tanner Institute has uncovered new research that can prescriptively guide your recognition budgeting and planning efforts.

Join three recognition experts—Meghan Stettler, Director at the O.C. Tanner Institute, Sandra Christensen, VP of Awards, and Hannah Lawrence, Client Strategist—as they share insights, best practices, and real-life examples for the best ways to maximize your recognition dollars in the upcoming year. Attend to learn:

  • How prior recognition memories shape current recognition and cultural perceptions
  • Why frequent, smaller moments are more impactful than giant one-time celebrations
  • How much is too much—and how little is too little—in terms of spend
  • Why working with O.C. Tanner can make great recognition easy and memorable for all involved
