Partner Profile: Hi5

October 2, 2018


Hi5 is a simple and easy mobile and cloud platform that brings the fun back into HR with recognition, culture, and peer-reviews, without the time and hassle of laborious admin. 


Peer reviews and 360 reviews can be a daunting and challenging task for employees and companies alike. Cape Town-based startup Hi5 is looking to try and simplify the entire process by helping fast-paced companies take the laborious time intensive administration out of managing staff, and replaces it with a solution to help managers focus on staff growth, which ultimately increases efficiency and reduces employee turnover


How does it work?


Hi5 Basic has a free version, for companies that want a simple platform for recognition. The business package offers more detailed reports and provides employee reviews on culture, and measures goals and accomplishments of co-workers.


Each employee is assigned five goals to carry out, which according to Hi5 is the optimal number for productivity. They’re then assigned five anonymous co-workers for reviewing throughout the year. Each employee is also sent five review reminders per year to complete their assessments. They can also publicly praise co-workers with Hi5's for acknowledging work well done.


Reviews can take around five minutes, which Hi5 has found are usually completed during lunch breaks or during a commute. The tool also provides simple and regular HR reporting, keeping organisations updated on their employees and their progress.


It is a local solution!


Hi5 has a small engineering team who have three to five years experience in iOS, Android and Mean Stack Development. The company also has a senior team with experience in HR, management and sales.


Hi5 is adding data analytics and artificial intelligence tools for clients to draw interesting company data. This will be used to provide great insights to organisation leaders.




It’s free to use initially, however for ongoing reports, it costs R95 per user per month, which is worth every cent.


Virtue HR Solutions is a Hi5 partner, we can get you a 10% discount, so it would cost R85 per user per month.

With the end of the year approaching, it’s great to reflect and measure the people, culture and performance within your company, and this tool will help you do the legwork!
