Great concept. Makes HR easy. Say goodbye to long meaningless performance reviews.

5 3 years ago

Comments: Highly engaged employees and don't need to waste time on pointless long-winded performance reviews from the 1990s.

Pros:

Simple to explain the idea of giving Hi5. We have created a monthly competition where the person who receives most hi5's wins a prize. Keeps employees engaged and on a path to excellence.

Cons:

No reporting on app - need to go to web for that. Not a deal breaker but would nice to see some stats on the go.

Hi Geoff! WOW thanks for this amazing review! Although we'd like to keep the apps as simple and easy to use as possible, we are definitely looking into adding some of the reporting features! Keep Hi5'ing, Sharné Hi5 Hero

Great platform for employee recognition

5 9 months ago

Comments: Our experience has so far been great. The app provided much needed employee recognition and engagement.

Pros:

Hi5 is a great platform to boost employee engagement and encourage recognition. We used the surveys extensively which are intuitive and easy to use. It helped my team share their voice.

Cons:

Despite the ease of use improvements since we first used it, there are further improvements which would make Hi5 a winner product. Navigation can be improved a bit. We are still exploring the platform.

Hi 5

3 2 years ago

Comments: Its OK, I really cant say i love it, but I'm not mad at it either

Pros:

That you can let a colleague know they doing a great job or that they are just an awesome person

Cons:

being forced to give Hi 5 every month. Then having to give Hi5's just because you need too. It annoying and not sincere

Hi there! Thanks so much for leaving your review - it means so much to us when our users give candid feedback! We're sure your colleagues appreciate the ongoing recognition, but we understand that sometimes you're too busy or haven't noticed any commendable work at the office. Hopefully you've been receiving recognition as well! If you ever need some tips on giving recognition, let us know and we'll arrange to host a 30min Recognition Workshop at your company. Warm regards, The Hi5 Team

Team spirit

5 2 years ago

Comments: Using Hi5 encourages healthy growth and development, and generally, our team is happier and more productive as a result.

Pros:

Integrating ratings into the software enables team members to have an accurate understanding of true value. Using Hi5 has also elevated team spirit and encourages team members in areas of growth and development.

Cons:

Self-ratings. But that is more to do with the fact that one has to self analyse value, rather than the software itself.

Hi5 Technologies Response

2 years ago

Hi Michelle! Wow, we love what we're hearing - it's great news that your team is happier and more productive since using Hi5! When it comes to self-ratings, it's a great way to reflect on your personal growth at your company. With our new Pulses feature Admins can toggle Self-ratings on/off. Please feel free to reach out again if you have any more feedback for us! Warm regards, The Hi5 Team
