About Tikel


Tikel is on a mission to power small acts of kindness.


Want to show your bestie you’re thinking of them? Brighten your colleague’s bad day? Put a smile on your brother’s face? There’s a Tikel for that.

How Tikel Helps Companies


Compensation alone is no longer an effective tool to address today’s key workplace challenges: quiet quitting, remote work, employee cynicism and the loneliness epidemic. With Tikel’s platform, companies are able to address the root of these challenges: how we connect to our workplace and to others in an authentic way.


Tikel’s platform supports employee wellbeing and engagement through small acts of kindness. Its patent-pending technology leverages neuroscience and psychology to deliver emotional connection in a clean, simple and authentic way. Small acts of kindness lead to happier, more resilient employees. And happier, more resilient employees lead to better performance and better workplace culture.

Authentic, cost-effective way to address employee wellbeing and engagement
