Hi5 Overview

What is Hi5?

Hi5 is a cloud employee recognition and feedback platform that enables staff within companies to recognise and rate each other in real time, allowing management and HR teams to track and monitor values and goals, as well as measure culture and happiness across the organisation. Users are able to recognise peers, provide continuous feedback to co-workers, and anonymously rate staff members. Hi5 integrates with Slack and comes with native mobile apps for Android and iOS for reviewing while on-the-go.

Hi5 enables co-workers to give recognition and appreciation for one another in real time, and provide continuous feedback on the culture, growth and happiness of the company. Team members can give a Hi5 to any co-worker via the cloud based platform, or mobile device. Users can tag colleagues who worked together on a project, back a Hi5 posted by another member, and even add GIFs or images. The Hi5 Wall of Fame provides a live feed TV stream view for all staff, helping make recognition more visible across the company.

As employees give recognition and show appreciation to other team members, it enables management and HR teams to measure culture, happiness, and growth across the organization, as well as track and monitor goals. Via the company dashboard, management staff can view the general progress of their employees at-a-glance with real time employee data and insights. Users can see who has been giving and receiving Hi5’s across various departments, roles and offices, helping them to understand which employees are making an impact.

Additional features include a notice board to share news and make company-wide announcements, a people directory for tracking employee details, as well as a Hi5 Leaderboard to see how much recognition is being given compared to other team members.

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.

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

Easy form to recognition for the colleagues

We are recent using Hi5 for a short time but the acceptation of the solution by the colleagues is great. The easy to use and in special, the opportunity to publish (only for the company) the recognitions do the use of the tool a great place for all of us.

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.

Response from Hi5 Technologies

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,

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

Response from Hi5 Technologies

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

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.

Response from Hi5 Technologies

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,

Pros

It is easy to use application really friendly.
In a view, you can check the contributions and recognitions of the colleagues and, could add your comments, images or smiles.
The option to filter the messages that you would like to see in the feed is really fantastic, having a lot of different filters to tune your search.
The publication of recognition or message is really easy.

Cons

Despite the feed panel is clear, in my opinion, the recognitions boxes are too big and are necessary to do a lot of scrolling.

Response from Hi5 Technologies

Hi Daniel!

Thank you for leaving us a stellar review! We're so happy that your company is enjoying Hi5!
