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

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

Hi5 Review

Good for small to medium business who want to appreciate employees on a semi-formal platform

Pros

Awesome to appreciate team members and see others being appreciated in the same organization continually.

Cons

It is still new, so sometimes there are bugs, but the customer support is awesome and features are constantly being implemented

Hi 5

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

Warm regards, The Hi5 Team

Feedback

So far its very positive but we will have to see once HOD have loaded roles and goals and performance review is done.

Pros

Very early to say - but like the ease of loading, quick. Great assistance but not done for you, but we are still on trial so can understand.

Cons

Not sure how performance review will work - its still vague on this.

Reasons for Choosing Hi5

We are trialing it, looked easier and was cheaper

Team spirit

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.

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
