"I've seen a lot more positive energy… positive 'vibes', way more creativity… The employees like it, because it's very simple and easy to use. This way they can see what everyone's involved in and who's doing what and appraise everyone's actions and behaviours." - Leigh Michalowski, HR Manager
"You can basically do it anywhere, from any device. It's quite a nice rating system… definitely one-of-a-kind! I think it's a very good way of motivating people. It's very honest and very instant." - Ryno Colyn, HOD: Content
"Hi5 is nice because a lot of the time you only work within your department… whereas with Hi5 you can actually go out of your department and give somebody recognition for something that you wouldn't usually do. You also get to know what other people are doing around you. Somebody has given somebody a Hi5 and you can actually back them and say, "OK, wow, that's actually really good, well done!" Whereas you wouldn't usually know that they've done that.
"Everybody is looking out more for what people do around the company and wanting to give Hi5's especially with the reminders you get - 'You've still got so many Hi5's to give!' So you're just like, "OK, we need to start recognising people." You don't tend to do that verbally… whereas here it actually pushes you to do it - to actually give them recognition for what they're doing." - Lynn Jamey, Content Traffic Manager
"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."
