Porpoise is built around programs and events. Programs on Porpoise usually have a goal and a corresponding metric, as well as an end date associated with it. Programs follow the SMART goal framework, meaning they are specific, measurable attainable, realistic, and time bound. For example, a volunteering program could have a goal of achieving 10 hours of volunteerism in a 3 month period. This makes it easier for people to understand what they are working toward, and how they can contribute. Just one of the many contributing factors to our engaging user-experience!
Porpoise is the most engaging solution for companies and their employees because it offers a simple yet powerful platform for people to connect with each other, surrounding actions and experiences that matter: actions that are associated with a person’s purpose & values.
It all boils down to a formula that we’ve discovered:
Purpose + Action = Impact
With Porpoise, companies are able to empower their employees to turn their values, and purpose into action, and that’s where impact occurs. Every single day, 100’s of actions are captured on Porpoise, where people are able to come together and connect around these actions and celebrate the corresponding impact that is generated by them.
Programs can be formed around anything and everything, and they’re unique to the company that hosts them. Programs become a reflection of the company and employee values and culture.
Here are a couple of examples of programs you can run at Porpoise!
Since running our health and wellness programs for example, our entire team has felt a lot healthier, and able to operate at a higher level when we’re at work. Health and wellness programs show that your company encourages a work-life balance and promotes personal wellness.
On top of developing a better understanding of the causes our colleagues care about, our community/volunteering programs also help us discover volunteering opportunities in the community. The impact we’ve been able to generate is far greater than we had expected as a relatively small team.
Our employee engagement programs allow us to put our corporate purpose and values into action, and make us feel like a stronger team. Porpoise is the first platform that connects and aligns teams surrounding the things that makes their culture unique. As companies achieve their goals, we generate impact reports for internal and external sharing.
