We got tired of dealing with what doesn’t work in global staffing—so we fixed it.

After 20 years in global staffing, we’ve seen what works and what doesn’t.

So we thought, why not just connect everyone in one, easy-to-use talent solution?

One solution that not only makes it easier to find the people you need but also saves money doing it.

Oh, and it must be a pleasant experience for everyone. That’s not too much to ask, right? We didn’t think so.


We brought together some of the best minds in staffing to dream up an ideal system. These are people who know, first-hand, the frustrations and shortcomings of traditional hiring.

Then we hired some of the most talented developers to build a total talent solution.

That’s how High5 was created. And we made it for you.
