What is Social Recognition, Really?


Pulling from O.C. Tanner Institute’s latest study—Influencing Greatness: Giving, Receiving, and Observing Recognition—this orange paper dives into the data behind social recognition (not social media recognition) and examine the truth behind the old axiom: it’s better to give than receive.

While giving alone has a significant impact on key metrics like engagement and innovation, the real insight is the effect it has on employees’ perception of the company they work for. Not wanting to give it all away, we’ll just say that there’s an very positive correlation between giving recognition and seeing your company as successful (we’re talking increases of over 30%).

Download this orange paper to uncover the unexpected results true social recognition has on those that give it, not just those they give it to.
