Why Givitas Works

Job satisfaction, career success, and happiness in general are all results of having a strong network that allows you to get help when you need it and offer help in return.

We didn’t make this stuff up–our technology is inspired by academic research on generosity, knowledge sharing, and asking for help done by two of our co-founders: Adam Grant in his bestselling business book, Give and Take and Dr. Wayne Baker at the University of Michigan in his forthcoming book All You Have to Do is Ask.
