Technology Based on Groundbreaking Research from Adam Grant
In 2013, organizational psychologist and Wharton professor Adam Grant took the business world by storm with his bestselling book Give and Take. The book highlights a simple but profound premise: generous people are more successful at work than selfish ones- a claim backed by extensive empirical data. And corporate America took notice. Leaders worldwide have flocked to the finding that individuals and companies do better when organizations build and sustain a corporate culture of giving.
University of Michigan professor Wayne Baker has spent his career on research showing that a willingness and ability to ask for help is crucial to individual and team success. These powerhouses, along with renowned social science innovator Cheryl Baker, joined forces to create Givitas, a web-based technology platform that helps enterprises implement the principles from Grant and Baker’s research using a scalable, measurable, and manageable technology.
"The hallmark of any great work culture is that people care as much about each other’s success as their own. Many organizations never reach that level of 'productive generosity,’ and it’s not because people aren’t willing to give. It’s because they’re afraid to ask for help. Givitas reduces the stigma of asking for help and enables people to give in five minutes a day."
Give and Take In The News
"In a world where poor knowledge-sharing costs Fortune 500 companies $31.5 billion annually, Givitas’ potential positive impact on employers is clear."
"Givitas can make asking for and getting help from other employees simple–which can make your business a lot more efficient and effective."
"[Givitas] wants you in and out in five minutes a day, so you can do your work more efficiently and effectively–and help others do the same."
