Hi5 is the glue of our team

I enjoy the application immensely but will say that there needs to be a constant effort in terms of how we engage and at what points. I find that sometimes I forget to put a high5 on the platform and then weeks go by without taking the time to acknowledge a colleague. Perhaps the app can start to grow out into integration on Gmail and other platforms to make it easier to give praise quickly and seamlessly within the workday.

Pros

The best part about High5 is that it actively promotes feedback and recognition in the workplace. This has proven benefits to team morale and positive culture. High5 makes it easy and entertaining to make sure you visit the platform regularly! Its visually dynamic layout brings a welcome break to the average day on the desktop, I find myself sometimes revisiting old High5's just to get the boost again.

Cons

The software is still being developed and it is sometimes a little bit cumbersome to look at or get around. There can be an improvement in the 'flow' from screen to screen. Some times the GIF function does not work and it only displays partially on the wall.

Reasons for switching to Hi5

It didn't go with our tech environment. The appraisal was forgotten or thrown away.

Hi5 as a Platform for Recognizing Team Member Contribution in a High-pace Tech Environment

I've seen that it helps improve morale and motivation to do better the more often we take time to let people know how much their contribution is valued. I will continue to use Hi5 and encourage my team members to do the same. Peer Evaluations should be ongoing and Hi5 supports for that.

Pros

I like that it creates a public channel where we can post positive feedback to my team members. It is always good for people to get a view of how their efforts are recognized. We work in a high pace environment, where giving recognition is often just a pat on the back and then quickly forgotten the next time something takes priority. So with Hi5 we have somewhere to actually record this recognition.

Cons

Currently the user interface feels a bit busy. Quite a lot of things happening on the Wall of Fame page. Having multiple features on the left and right hand side might be a bit too much. Perhaps an addition to the product could be to provide some aspect of "critical" feedback to be sent privately to a team member. Just to assist them to find ways for personal improvement. I understand this could potentially take away the "feel-good" factor that Hi5 is trying to promote in organisations, but it could help for people to get a view of where their peers would want them to improve.

Response from Hi5 Technologies

Hiya Sheu! Thanks so much for leaving us a review :) we really appreciate the feedback. For giving more critical feedback, why not look at using Pulses with Goals or Culture ratings included? This way you can solicit more performance-orientated feedback from co-workers. Need more info? Ask us at help@get5.io Warm regards, The Hi5 Team

Best 5 Review

Staff morale has really gone up, encourage people to congratulate/encourage one another on a daily basis.

Pros

- Very interactive, - Allow people to review each other on different projects they work on. - Great tool to search if staff is happy.

Cons

- Can have a lot of system errors. - Sends a lot of emails, feels like spam emails at times. - Profile set up should be made much simpler.

Hi5 Sessions

My experience with Hi5 app is 99.99%, for now I really don't have anything to add on this app.

Pros

It's fun, it's where you appreciate your colleagues at work. Always updates you with the Teams birthdays- that most important, this app makes us feel like home while we at work. It also make you feel not to left behind, giving out Hi5 is the most interesting part. End of the day if you're the top giver, you win Hi5 Award and some little gift from the office to make it more interested.

Cons

Communication & more information about other Colleagues job descriptions.

Response from Hi5 Technologies

Honest Review

Great to use. The leaderboard is one of my favourite features. Recognising peers in a public/accessible forum makes them feel special which is great.

Pros

Recognising Peers does volumes for morale. This is the main reason i make a special effort to use this app.

Cons

I cannot think of a single downside of the actual software. I just wish management would use it more. Especially C level executives.

Response from Hi5 Technologies

Hi there! Wow, it's amazing to hear that co-workers are able to connect with each other more because they have a platform to give recognition. You are right - management need to be as involved as employees, if not more, in giving recognition. We're publishing a blog article soon addressing this very issue. Thank you for your feedback and we hope we can help your company in the near future! Warm regards, The Hi5 Team
