Hi5 is a fully digital, cloud-based employee recognition platform that is simple to use. Instead of waiting for quarterly or annual performance reviews, Hi5 allows employees to quickly recognize and praise a job well done.
In addition to being a great way to encourage communication and collaboration, Hi5 is an excellent resource for HR teams. The platform allows HR to track and monitor team values and goals as well as measure the overall happiness of the company.
Hi5’s platform is designed to be easy to use and engaging. The dashboard is bright and colorful, and all subcategories such as team goals or company values are easily accessible. Via the platform, managers can quickly check on teams, view team goals, and see how their team is doing overall.
Employees can easily find a coworker and give them a high-five and a personal message thanking them for a job well done or just being an awesome coworker. Employees can also create goals for themselves and keep track of their progress.
Users can log in to the platform on their computer or via the app — making it possible to recognize your employees or coworkers from anywhere.
Hi5’s website includes the pricing for three plans.
If you are just interested in Hi5’s games, it’s $9 per month (flat fee), and it allows an unlimited number of users. This is a good option if you’re looking for some fun ideas to encourage employees to get to know each other better.
The next tier is the Awesome plan. This plan is free for up to 10 users, but if you have more than that, you will pay $2 per user per month. The Awesome plan is probably most used for its recognition features.
The final plan Hi5 offers is the Business plan. This plan costs $5 per user per month, but you can test it out with a 14-day free trial. This plan is best for companies that want a fun, engaging platform to recognize their employees and want the nitty-gritty details and breakdowns of how each team is doing.
Unfortunately, Hi5’s platform does not include a physical rewards system. Most employee recognition companies incorporate a rewards program that gives employees the chance to build up points or credits and use them to purchase company swag, a gift card, or another physical reward.
It is not necessarily bad that Hi5 doesn’t have a rewards store, but employees might be less motivated to high-five or recognize their coworkers. Studies have shown that people tend to be highly motivated when there is some sort of extrinsic reward.
