Hi-5 - Inside UW Health, Recognition


Send Your Co-worker a "Hi-5" Through the U-Connect Directory

Hi-5 is a simple, easy way to recognize a UW Health colleague for their efforts in exemplifying UW Health's Values. 

Using a simple online form, you can select a topic, write a personal note and send a Hi-5 to up to 10 people. Your colleague(s) will receive your Hi-5 in their e-mail account. A copy of the Hi-5 will be sent to the recipient's supervisor or manager, whenever possible and to anyone else you copy on the message. 

To Send a Hi-5

From the Directory home page, select the Send a Hi-5 button (you will be prompted to log in) and begin typing in the name of the recipient (last name first works the best) in the "TO:" field. Select the name of the person you want to send a Hi-5 from the list.

When you have selected your recipient from the list of names, their Directory photo appears in the Hi-5 message allowing for confirmation that you have selected correctly.
