About O.C. Tanner

O.C. Tanner is the global leader in software and services that improve workplace culture through meaningful employee experiences.

Its Culture Cloud is a suite of apps and solutions, including recognition, service awards, wellbeing, leadership, and celebrations that help people thrive at work.

O.C. Tanner provides these and other services for thousands of the most respected companies in the world.


O.C. Tanner has over 100 engineers spread across two countries and was using a suite of very expensive tools to maintain code quality.

Security and reliability are paramount for them, as they handle sensitive HR data for multiple Fortune 500 companies.

With a highly complex codebase, it was taking an enormous amount of time to run basic scans and checks, and errors and style inconsistencies compounded quickly across such a large team.


Codacy provided one integrated, fully automated solution with clear, quantifiable metrics that could be presented to current clients, all with a cost savings of over 60%.

In most cases, Codacy was tracking down issues in less than 10% of the time they were spending previously.

Other benefits

Additionally, Codacy has kept engineers up-to-date on latest best practices, increased product ownership through organizational transparency, and decreased response time to issues through increased awareness and proactivity.

Additionally, it has improved consistency across all teams and allowed engineering managers to proactively address issues and blockers.
