Givitas Improves Connection and Generosity
Decades of social science research shows that people feel better and do better when they are able to easily get the help they need.

Above all, Givitas was custom-built to drive generosity, trust, connection, and gratitude.
But the organization that brings them together reaps benefits as well. Engagement, retention, loyalty and satisfaction all improve.

From Adam Grant:
“As a leader of a growing team or company, the single most important thing you can do to ensure your success is to invest in building a culture of givers.”
~Adam Grant, author of the book Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, and co-founder of Give and Take.
Leaders all over the country have taken this advice to heart.
As a result, hundreds of thousands are using Give and Take’s tools to transform culture. We can help by:
- Breaking down silos
- Encouraging generosity
- Creating a safe place to get the help you need to get the job done.
- Giving everyone access to the collective intelligence, reducing barriers and inequity.
"I am learning how to seek help without shame. Giving help comes much easier to me naturally, but asking for help is hard. I am learning everyday on this platform. Thank you Givitas."
"We use Givitas with our students as a follow-up to the Reciprocity Ring. We have seen students access valuable resources through the platform, build community, and in the process learn about the power of giving for networking.”
"The Reciprocity Ring is proving to be a powerful and insightful tool that has real practical application in problem solving for bottom-line business results. The Reciprocity Ring builds trust and relationships by creating new and fast connections where they might not have existed otherwise. The Ring finds solutions in unexpected places, ultimately helping people get the information they need now."
The idea of a platform just for exchanging help is simple but brilliant."
"Engagement comes from being in an environment where you build relationships with the company and the team, where you feel trusted, where you're getting the support you need."
"Givitas can make asking for and getting help from other employees simple -- which can make your business a lot more efficient and effective."
"We implemented Givitas with a geographically and departmentally dispersed group charged with driving new product and service innovation. Givitas really helped us improve knowledge sharing and collaboration across this team while speeding up innovation and building stronger connections."
"Givitas has been quite valuable, making it easy for me to both give and receive. In once instance, 19 generous givers offered me 39 useful ideas in just 13 days - far exceeding the quality and response rate using traditional collaboration tools."
"After the 2013 publication of Adam Grant’s Give and Take, more organizations began to understand that asking for assistance might not be a sign of weakness after all."
"The simplicity of sharing, helping, and learning in a fairly closed group is liberating and profound."
"Collaboration is the key, and Givitas makes it easy. It allowed me to reach out and connect with colleagues around the world. I received support for my questions and I was also happy to help others providing my knowledge or providing proper contact within our organization."
"Asking for help is a huge mental shift for people leaving the military. It is often seen as a weakness for those in uniform if they can’t do something themselves. We have found with soldiers, sailors, and airmen and women, that the RR is a revolutionary concept that frees them in their transition to civilian life."
"One of the more powerful ways to learn and grow into your career is to feel comfortable asking for help. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness or of lack of work ethic, it's a sign of strength and confidence."
"Givitas gives me an opportunity to have some unusual requests granted that I wouldn't elsewhere. It feels productive and satisfying. I feel smarter and more resourceful."
“I like that people in our [Givitas] community come from different diverse fields and backgrounds. I use Givitas when a challenge is new to me, and there's a feeling of satisfaction whenever I provide real help to someone else.”
"I made a nice connection with a like-minded individual!"
"It created a better sense of our community. It proactively positioned people to ask for - and offer - assistance to the group."
“Givitas helps build bridges across an organization and makes it easier for both newcomers and senior leaders to ask for and offer help!”
