The PMAP’s Center for Research and Publications, in partnership with O.C. Tanner, is dedicated to enhancing organizational excellence and improving the employee experience through community and recognition. Recently, Ms. Meghan Stettler, Director of O.C. Tanner Institute, led an insightful session emphasizing the importance of fostering connections among employees through consistent and authentic recognition practices.

Ms. Stettler’s presentation revolved around four key concepts: the emphasis of workplace community, leadership at risk, the rise of the generalist compared to that of the specialist, and integrated recognition and symbolism. She highlighted the need to bridge recognition between leaders and community members, as leaders face increased responsibilities and pressures that may affect their overall well-being.

Recognizing that simple habits, such as saying authentic ‘thank you’ and showing empathy, are the foundation of a recognition culture, Ms. Stettler stressed that they promote a stronger sense of community within organizations. At O.C. Tanner, they actively practice these habits, contributing to a more interconnected workspace that values both leaders and members.

Creating such interconnected workspaces not only enhances employee recognition but also strengthens communities that prioritize talent and meaningful connections. O.C. Tanner and the People Management Association of the Philippines are committed to answering this call in the ever-evolving landscape of work engagement and employee excellence.

Together, they strive to shape regenerative mechanisms to create better communities within and beyond the workplace.
