O.C. Tanner proudly welcomed Josh Bersin, Principal and Founder of Bersin by Deloitte, and our own David Sturt, EVP of O.C. Tanner Institute, to lead this month’s webinar. Josh and David shared a new approach to building an irresistible company culture.
Josh Bersin asked listeners, is engagement a problem? A recent Gallup study shows yes – a third of the workforce is actively disengaged and only 2/3 are engaged at all. And since 2008, company ratings through Glassdoor have remained at 3.1 and 3.2 out of 5.
Josh introducted a new, holistic approach to combating this problem: the Simply Irresistible model. He breaks it down to five key factors that work best:
- Meaningful Work
- Supportive Management
- Fantastic Work Environment
- Growth Opportunity
- Trust in Leadership
Within his model, Josh points out the importance of recognition within every step. Today, great leaders are not just great bosses, they have followers. People feel empowered and inspired by their leaders when their work is recognized. And that’s where O.C. Tanner comes in.
David Sturt continued with a question he gets often: how can companies build an irresistible culture and work environment? Most companies today leave recognition in default mode of their managers. And you never know what you will get when you leave recognition to chance or in the best intentions of the worst managers.
David shared the design principles to shaping employee recognition in an organization:
- Design for Connections
- Design for Authenticity
- Design for Lasting Impact
Closing this month’s webinar, he reminded listeners to be intentional, be thoughtful, and be mindful about how you are trying to shape recognition in your organization. You’ll be proud of the culture you will create.
