In every program, we collect recognition and organizational outcome data such as engagement scores, turnover rates, and specific KPI measures. To validate and expand upon our findings, BrandAlliance partners with the Department of Management at Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business where award-winning faculty study and analyze this data so that you know how recognition is impacting employee behavior and therefore, driving outcomes.
