Prodromos commented on The Reciprocity Initiative

I am truly and deeply grateful for your interest in my proposal and for your kinds words. I envision the role of the users in the proposed platform to be two-fold. First the users will be the ones who will submit their ideas, regarding the ways their company's facilities can be used to offer services to other employees, with the understanding that this offering will be a token of appreciation for their contribution to the company and the other workers. Secondly the workers of the company who will be the users of the platform, will comment on the already proposed ideas of their fellow co-workers, even asking questions for clarification (like the question you asked), or even propose their additional ideas for the improvement of a proposal. The management will take into consideration the proposed ideas as well as the feedback by other employees, and evaluate the feasibility of the ideas and the impact these ideas will have to the lives of the company's employees always in the context of inspiration of gratitude.
The way I see it, is that the platform will be a smaller scale version of the OPENIDEO platform, deployed on the company's intranet, and specialized only in ideas concerning the expression of gratitude through the utilization of the company's facilities for offering services to the employees and their families that will improve their well-being.
I always believed that a great way to lead a life, is to ask yourself what you would like to receive from the world, and when you find the answer, to offer this to the world as your contribution to it. This is the essence of reciprocity for me, and of the Golden Rule. I would like the proposed platform to make it easier to live a life enriched with gratitude that will enhance work life balance, that is so much needed in our times.
I am always at your disposal fro further clarifications.
