Send a High Five!
The High Five is one of several Kasey Kudos greeting cards that can be sent to your UMKC peers. The High Five is a recognition card developed exclusively for UMKC staff.
Simply log in with your UMKC SSO to access the system, select the High Five card, enter your message and select Preview to view and send your card. You can elect to have the recipient view and/or print the card.
Why Send a High Five?
You can send a High Five for the greatest or even the smallest deeds that you feel deserve recognition! You may send a High Five because…
- Your co-worker helped you finish a project
- Your supervisor brought in cookies
- Your staff member performed a difficult task
- Your colleague did an excellent job today
- It’s your boss’s birthday
- An employee outside of your department lent a helping hand
- You want to send recognition!
At the end of each month, a few names are randomly drawn from the bank of people who have received a High Five email that month. The winners will receive a special prize from Staff Council, and their names will appear in the Staff Council monthly newsletter and Staff Council Facebook page (link to Facebook). All prize recipients are notified via email prior to the newsletter release. If you would prefer not to be mentioned in the newsletter, please let us know before the first of the month by replying to your winner notification email message.
The High Five recipient must be a full-time benefit eligible UMKC staff employee. The sender does not need to be a staff member. In order to be eligible for the prize drawing, the recipient must have been sent the High Five e-card via Kasey Kudos within the calendar month of the drawing. The High Five has to have been sent by someone else to be considered valid. You cannot send a High Five to yourself.
