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.

Culture Amp

Great partner for administering our annual engagement survey. You can set up automated reminders for users who have not filled out the survey over a period of time. They also offer a lot of benchmark data and resources to really understand what your organization's results mean and how to go about picking the most critical pieces of information that need attention and can have the greatest impact on the organization. If you choose not to use their survey templates or add your own questions to a survey, you may not be able to get any external benchmark data, as it all depends on how relevant your own questions are to the questions used by others in their shared templates.

Pros

  • Flexibility to set your questions by company/team/individual.
  • It is a weekly reporting platform that also has the functionality to do end of year reviews. Having continuity makes the end of year process much more streamlined.
  • Allows individuals to set, report and record progress on weekly goals. These users can then go back later and review these goals and progress throughout the year.
  • I love that the survey is customizable and that additional questions can be added.
  • A really interesting feature is the benchmarking and the data used is from other companies within the same industry and vertical.
  • The fact that this is completely anonymous and that our team can feel confident to provide honest and real answers to the survey questions.

Cons

  • The interface to set up the question frequency is a bit confusing.
  • The 360-degree review functionality is relatively new so there are still some kinks to work out on this part of the product.
  • They already have a good assortment of templates to utilize but I would like to see more added on a regular basis.
  • The system is easy to use, and this does not relate to its functionality, but maybe more interesting design to the pages and experience as a whole.
  • It would be interesting to have the ability to share the survey results with the team and be able to add feedback comments as well.
