We're on a mission
to improve workplace culture.

Whether you choose our one-time, live event or software or,  the Give and Take philosophy works.


Asking for and offering help improves business outcomes, culture, inclusion, and equity.  It is proven by research, studies, and happy customers worldwide.

Give and Take helps organizations improve diversity, inclusion and equity

We are all about Generosity

Research shows that when we are helpful to others at work, our job satisfaction, health, sense of wellbeing, work product, work environment, and even business results all improve.

The Reciprocity Ring and Givitas can help your organization improve in all of these areas.

Give and Take helps teach people about the power of asking for help

We believe in asking for help when we need it. We believe that asking for help is not a sign of weakness or lack of knowledge, that it is a sign of strength. We believe that when we need help, ask for it, and get it with no strings attached, everyone involved in the exchange is better for it, because it shows a commitment to putting the project or company ahead of our own egos.


We believe you do not have to sacrifice an effective, efficient workforce for a kind one; that our collaboration and interdependence strengthens impact, profitability, and results.

Give and Take helps people learn the value of helping others

We believe that high-quality relationships make work more meaningful, and that one of the key ways to build better, stronger relationships is to build and sustain a culture of productive generosity, where asking for and offering help is easy, encouraged, and common.

We're science based

Our work is inspired and influenced by the award-winning work of our founding team.
