Q: Will the reviews I completed be saved before I’ve completed the entire Peer Review?

A: In order to ensure the security and privacy of all Hi5 accounts and users, you cannot leave a review mid-way and come back again later and do it. If a review is interrupted and you have to return to it later, you will have to start from scratch.

Q: Will the information in the Review be used against me if I rate someone low?

A: Hi5 is a tool designed to help optimise staff performance, give insight into personal areas of excellence and also development needs and, ultimately, to help teams work better together. Low ratings are ,therefore, not something to penalise, but rather serve as a signpost to areas for improvement.

Q: If I get low ratings from my Peers, will this be used in my formal job review?

A: Scoring a consistently low rating from one’s peers would seem to indicate that there is room for personal growth on the identified measure. Whether it will get used in your formal job review is up to your company. 

Q: Can I be fired for having low ratings on Hi5?

A: While a low rating on Hi5 should not lead to you being fired, it should raise the flag that something needs attention/work.

Q: How can I be sure that no-one tampers with my reviews?

A: Hi5 is a secure site (pinky promise). 

Q: Is there any benefit to me if I give someone a Hi5?

A: Giving a Hi5 in itself does not directly benefit you, other than the fact that it shows that you are aware of effort above-and-beyond the call of duty. Hi5 your peers where a Hi5 is earned. Don’t leave your peers hanging…

Q: Is it possible to go back and edit a Peer Review once I’ve submitted it?

A: Once a Peer Review has been submitted you cannot change it.

Q: How do I delete my account?

A: As a User, you cannot delete your account. Only Admin can delete accounts.

That was a mouthful.
