It’s better to give than to receive

Too often people aren’t appreciated, that’s why we created Hi5 — to make recognition simple, easy and fun again!

Too often people aren’t appreciated, that’s why we created Hi5 — to make recognition simple, easy and fun again!

Why is appreciation so important for you?

“Feeling genuinely appreciated lifts people up. At the most basic level, it makes us feel safe, which is what frees us to do our best work.” - HBR, “Why Appreciation Matters So Much”

Hi5, together with Colombo Coffee & Tea, are giving you the chance to recognise a co-worker and get rewarded for doing so.

How does it work?

  1. Download the Hi5 app for Android or iOS.
  2. Sign up for your free Hi5 account.
  3. Think of a co-worker who deserves some appreciation.
  4. Hi5 your co-worker with a creative, genuine message.
  5. We pick a great Hi5 & reward the giver!
