Top photo summary: Based on the Amazon employee’s status update, Amazon doesn’t recognize an employee’s 1-year anniversary. But they do celebrate 5-years with a special employee ID.
Bottom photo summary: Disney recognizes 5-year employment anniversaries like Amazon, but also celebrates the first-year anniversary with a special Steamboat Willie Service Pin for the Cast Member’s name tag. Additionally, a new “years of service” pin is awarded at every five year anniversary. The Pinocchio statue also came with a 30-year service pin to wear on my Disney name tag.
So i have seven pins:
1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30
Disney over-focuses on the same things others under-focus on or ignore.
Why would an organization not focus on an early, celebratory win, on the first company anniversary?
And what’s to be gained culturally by celebrating one-year anniversaries?
The thinking that went into Disney’s cultural norm versus Amazon’s illustrates the power in .thinking .differently
