ABOUT

Our employees are our most valuable assets. They are crucial to our success. We hire good people, who fit our culture, and then train them into our world.

 

Our average employee tenure is 5.5 years.

That's probably why our average customer tenure is 4.5 years.

 

Since we are an Internet company, it only makes sense that our employees are also internet based. At High 5, we still have staff meetings and expectations, but our employees are virtual. They work from wherever they want, with flexible, 4-day work weeks.

Lastly, we try to give back by helping people immigrate to the United States - legally. At the time of this writing, we have helped 3 people improve their lives by immigrating to the USA.
