Expressing gratitude to others at work can have a profound and positive impact on the culture of your team. In fact, studies show that appreciation and recognition improve employee engagement, productivity, and connection. When employees know that their best efforts are acknowledged and valued, their happiness and work performance reach new heights.
Now, thanks to Technology Services and Solutions (TSS), County employees can send a virtual high five to their colleagues and recognize the good work they do each and every day:
The My High 5 App was created by TSS because they understood the power of workplace recognition stemming from the Employee Engagement and Well-Being survey results. They set out to create an easy and fun tool that allows you to send notes and badges of appreciation. The hope is that all teams and employees across the County use My High 5 as a way to spread joy, gratitude and recognition.
