15Five

15Five is well suited for businesses/groups that are transparent, and willing to share information. If an organization was not a place where information is freely shared, it would not be helpful. Although, it could improve the level of transparency, as members of the organization could have space where they feel comfortable to share information. There are several different privacy settings within the each 15Five, so users can choose what they want to share. Also, it's best to make sure you/your organization has the time to use 15Five. It can be time-consuming for users, but also for those reviewing employees 15Five. It can be a lot of information to sift through. However, the layout of the software is easy to engage with and digest, which is helpful! Additionally, it's important to share with the team how 15Five works, and why it's being utilized. Depending on the questions that are set up within the software, it would seem a bit invasive to some. However, if a clear expectation is set prior to use 15Five, this may not be an issue.

It is great for small to medium sized companies that would benefit from BetterWorks. It encourages workers to improve their skills and grow as professionals on a team. I guess that it would not be as useful for large corporations that have well established teams and projects. The exception for large corporations would be to use it to track the progress of interns or newly hired workers.

Pros

15Five

  • Goals/To-do lists: 15Five is a great tool for creating to do lists or establishing goals for the week. Employees can add them easily, and check them off when completed. For me, this has provided a helpful visual of what needs to be accomplished that week.
  • It's easy to send information out to anyone in the organization - tagging individuals or @all is an easy way to share information within the platform. Our president is a big fan of 15Five, and she has utilized it as a way to disseminate information throughout our organization. Information can be uploaded in an easy-to-read, easy-to-access manner.
  • Reminders - it's easy to set up reminders within the program, to ensure employees are completing their portion. As an employee, the reminders are helpful in encouraging completion.
  • Customizable questions - direct supports/supervisors can set up different questions to be asked of employees from week to week. This is helpful if there are questions that are needed to be asked weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. Being able to change questions regularly is great.

Cons

15Five

  • I wish there was a way to set reoccurring 1:1 meetings. I meet with each of my team members the same day and time each week, however, I have to manually schedule these 1:1 meetings in 15Five rather than being able to have a standing meeting.
  • I wish there was some more customizing available for the structure of objectives. We have Company goals, department goals, team goals, and individual goals but 15Five doesn't give the option to create team goals currently.

  • It's sometimes hard to see ONLY your milestones and goals
  • Having more default units of measure might be nice (or being able to save your own custom ones)
  • Native integrations with software (like HubSpot) would be great

We've been using it for going on four quarters now and it's become part of how our team plans our work for the quarter, holds ourselves accountable, and decides who is doing what work and why. Without it we'd certainly have to replace it with something else - plus it's so nice to see the other departments and top company goals so easily.

Overall the platform is clean and easy to use. It's quick to learn and not unnecessarily complex. While a few specific filtering features can be wonky it's nice that it's simple and clean. There are a lot of icons where words may be more appropriate in the navigation but otherwise the platform is easy to use and quick to hop into and check in.

Alternatives Considered

Asana isn't necessarily a performance tracking tool but we tried to use it in a way that would work. 15Five is much better since it specializes in this area specifically.

I haven't seen many other platforms but I've really enjoyed working in BetterWorks from day one. My team was one of the first at our company to jump in and set goals and milestones and it's been easy to use and intuitive. There wasn't much of a learning curve with the platform itself - simply with goal setting in general. It would be nice though if there were some tips on setting good goals in the platform.

Return on Investment

15Five

  • We recently implemented this tool across the company (it was originally only being used by 1 department to test it out) but so far it is helping us track towards our overarching company revenue growth goal.
