Written by

Noti is a platform that allows users to create profiles detailing their gratitude preferences. Because there is no one-size-fits-all solution for gratitude, Noti takes a human-centric approach to gain insight from individuals on how they would like to receive gratitude. In addition to their gratitude preferences, users can also provide other helpful guides (i.e. favorite color, favorite food) to give individuals a better understanding of what makes them happy.

Idea Title

Noti: Nudging Each Other Closer

How the Idea will inspire the experience and expression of gratitude within an organization.

Everyone across the organization will have access to the gratitude preferences of one another. The shared information structure increases the opportunity for expressions of gratitude.

Who are you innovating for?

Anyone employed at an organization can benefit from this idea. Providing gratitude preferences upfront saves organizations from implementing gratitude strategies that may be ineffective.

What type of workplaces are you innovating for?

Any company with 100 or more employees.

How you envision the Idea being introduced to your selected organization?

Top-level management would be ideal for introducing the idea to the organization to emphasize the importance of gratitude and collaborative efforts. Department leads would be responsible for reiterating the overall goal.

What obstacles, if any, do you foresee in implementing this Idea, and how would they be overcome?

Foreseeable obstacles include a lack of participation. To address this issue, it is important that management is consistently involved and using the information from the profiles to show gratitude.

How will you test and prototype your solution?

To test and prototype the solution I would seek out willing participants in organizations that have a new paradigm leadership culture.

What immediate next steps will you take if you receive an implementation grant.

Completing the design of the platform would be the next immediate steps.
