O.C. Tanner Recognition Company was founded in 1927 by Obert C. Tanner, a professor of philosophy, who saw the value of recognizing people with tangible, lasting memories in the form of emblematic rings, jewelry and awards. More than eighty years later, the core business is still employee recognition. In today’s world, the need for employee recognition is even more compelling as companies and organizations seek to define the most effective solutions to attract, engage, motivate and retain employees.

Tanner has created a lean enterprise grounded in one-piece flow, with concurrent improvements in quality, cost and delivery.
