"We found out about Hi5, we liked the concept and we thought it's a nice way to create a recognition platform. Everybody loves recognition and that was something that was lacking in our business. One of our biggest points in terms of our pulse survey was that recognition was lacking, so we decided to give Hi5 a shot!
"What do I like about Hi5? Everything! I really enjoy Hi5, I think it's a good platform. It offers good recognition for staff; for everybody to see what we are doing. Especially in the HR space where support functions don't really get recognised much. It's good for us to recognise each other.
"What I enjoy is that it builds morale - it makes it an exciting place to be and platform to be part of! [The staff] get to give recognition to each other on a platform where everybody can see, instead of just a by-the-way 'you did well.'
"It gives an opportunity for us, especially in a big area (we're about 30 HR staff members and we operate in different areas - we've got recruitment, training, support & specialists for example). We're able to see what the other areas are doing and give recognition for hard work and acknowledgement from everyone else.
"So, I think [the staff] enjoy that and they also enjoy being acknowledged, and the fact that somebody took note of something they did." - Aqeela Haroun, Talent Business Partner
"Hi5 can be used to drive different streams of employee engagement... it's become a part of our culture and enabled us to reward people who really deserve to be rewarded."
"We use Hi5 because we believe in the power of recognition & showing gratitude to people who do great work and contribute to team members and building their careers."
"It’s very easy to get Hi5 kick-started in a couple of weeks ... really rich insights & data that we can use to better understand our own people."
"What I love about Hi5 is that it creates a sense of cohesion, so it brings the team together."
"People are happier and they are willing to give each other feedback, which we didn't have before."
"It works for our business and it really has driven an amazing culture through the team."
"Hi5 motivates us; it gives us a positive outlook about ourselves, because other people are seeing it."
"It's a cool concept to spread the happiness around and to know what's happening in the company."
"Hi5 has been a breath of fresh air - it's easy, it's quick and gives immediate feedback."
“It pushes you to actually give recognition, which you wouldn’t usually do.”
