15Five

15Five is for any size/type department or individual who has annual, quarterly and even weekly goal setting as a component of their performance evaluation. Whether it is a base salary only compensation model, or a base plus commission compensation model- it fits across roles, industries and diverse organizations

Hands down this tool nails what it sets out to do. If what you need is a no-fuss method of allowing employees to build each other up that is a completely self-reliant system that only requires your predictable capital investment: there is no better. There are more feature-rich tools so there are plenty of cases where it may make sense to opt for a more robust system. I think small and large teams benefit the most from a platform like this. Small teams where every minute of admin time is precious. Or big teams where complexity can become an issue, or said large teams that are looking for a supplemental system to their current bonus/employee recognition programs.

Pros

15Five

  • The Pulse Check feature is both easy to use and allows staff and management to gauge how team health is.
  • The metric and key performance tools are very well designed.
  • Automated reminders and reporting are great features.
  • I find the customer services to be best in class.

  • Peer-to-peer employee recognition
  • Automated recognition for work anniversaries and birthdays
  • Configurable admin permissions
  • Centralized company awards and incentives

Cons

15Five

  • Questions are repetitive weekly, though this may be a function of our administrator, and not the platform itself. Answering the same questions every 2 weeks is an awful lot like the movie Groundhog day.
  • Give employees at all levels visibility into the "How are you feeling" score to get a pulse on the entire company at once.

  • The presentation of rewards on the dashboard should have access restrictions to limit people from seeing totals of amounts awarded.

This program is the absolute best I've ever used in 30 years with organizations. Not only do I enjoy being a user and "filling it out" every week- but I would personally buy it if available for goal tracking in my personal life I love it that much!

It's very simple to use - not overly complicated. You wouldn't need training to use. There are some features I never use because I don't understand -- like one on ones. However we use without and still find a lot of value in it!

The 15Five support team is amazing. They were always willing to speak with me when I did something wrong in the system and never had a harsh or placing judgment tone in their voices. They respond quickly and promptly and allowed me to learn something new each time I cross lines with them. I am thankful for their knowledge and customer service they shared with me when I needed it.

I never had any issues with support. It's especially nice to be able to add location-specific rewards.

Very helpful webinar training. They answer questions, the slides are all very helpful, and they send you the presentation once the webinar is complete so that you can share with your team.

Alternatives Considered

15Five

I used Achievers a while ago and it was only limited to rewards. 15FIVE really makes a difference, it's real engagement for businesses and provides a lot of structure. I also love what they preach in their social channels as we are constantly learning from their podcasts and blog posts.

The "big name" to me has always been CrewHu. Not sure why they aren't in the listing at the time of this writing but they are far and away the big name from my perspective. This is the main other tool we've seriously considered and I think it highlights the opposite points I've made in the rest of this review. It is much larger in scope involving allowing your clients to participate, among many other smaller tools/features that Bonusly does not have. Conversely, it's a beast; the tool needs regular attention and engagement to leverage fully and make the investment cost worthwhile.Bonusly shines through as the simple and straightforward option on the market. There may come a time where we want more and change tools entierly to better fit new business needs. But I can see Bonusly benefiting just about any team, where other tools really require certain scenerios.
