Frequently Asked Questions
How does the chain of favors works?
Each time a new user registers in hands, he or she has the possibility to upload over ten of his abilities. For each new skill that is registered in the platform, the user must grant 3 free hours to the community in order to validate his/her skills. This verification process works for starting helping others with their needs and building a reputation in the platform as well as promoting chains of favors where the needs will then be solved by other users that register their abilities in the platform.
How does Hands for work work?
The driving force behind the module Hands for Work is the belief that people work better when they know each other because they start sharing their experiences and knowledge, thus generating better synergy.
