GetFeedback.com Adopts the 1/1/1 Corporate Philanthropy Model, Unveils GetFeedback Non-Profit Edition

GetFeedback.com, the company disrupting the online survey software market with engaging mobile-ready surveys, today announced the adoption of the 1/1/1 model of corporate philanthropy and unveiled GetFeedback Non-Profit Edition.

Pioneered by salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM), the idea behind the 1/1/1 model is to harness the power of a company’s resources, such as the intellectual wealth of its employees, product capabilities, and financial resources to improve the communities around us. Variations of the 1/1/1 model have been adopted by technology leaders including salesforce.com, Google, VMWare, Workday, Splunk, Zynga, Appirio, and Atlassian, among others.

Having adopted the 1/1/1 model, GetFeedback.com is pledging to donate:

  • 1% Employee Time - GetFeedback.com affords its employees 1% of their work schedule, or 6 paid days over the course of a year, to volunteer in the communities that they live and work in.
  • 1% Product Resources - GetFeedback Non-Profit Edition is made available to all qualifying organizations free of charge, accounting for roughly 1% of its total customer base.
  • 1% Company Profits - GetFeedback.com pledges to donate 1% of its corporate profits annually to deserving causes and charitable organizations in the form of monetary grants.
