15Five has helped me identify what part of my job I need to be dedicating more focus to and has allowed our team to celebrate wins together. Being a remote company, you lose a lot of face-to-face interaction for Slack messages so receiving High Fives in front of everyone on 15Five has been a great way to show appreciation for individuals in front of the entire company.

In my experience with using Javelo to complete my career evaluations, it generally performs adequately as long as I complete the full review in a single session. Once you're in the written question-and-answer portion of the review, the platform gives clear guidance and is easy to follow. However, if you exit the session partway through, it is difficult to find out what actions you have remaining. The dashboard language is ambiguous in this case, using terms like 'preparation' to refer to the written review (because it is in preparation for the in-person interview). Also 'finalization' means completing the written interview but there is another acknowledgment that needs to be completed after the in-person interview; it is only after this step that the full evaluation cycle is complete. Additionally, I have had the experience of my in-progress session not being saved although I took what I thought were the right steps to save my answers to return to later. After the first time this happened, I made sure to type everything in a separate document and just paste it into Javelo rather than risk having to start over again.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review Once you are in the review portion of the platform, following the prompts is straightforward. The dashboard shows clear indicators of whether you have an action remaining in the review process. Read full review Cons Could change up some of the required questions needing to be answered, usually, there is at least one at the bottom Maybe allow your supervisor to add tasks to your list just in case you forget Maybe add something fun or interesting to the weekly assignment, like a silly puzzle or game that is work-related even though this might be too much and take too much time for someone to do Read full review If you exit the review before completing all prompts, the answers will not always be saved. I have had this happen twice when I couldn't finish the questions in a single sitting and despite saving my session, I had to start from the beginning. When returning to an in-progress session (assuming it is saved correctly), it is less clear at what stage in the review process you are, and what is remaining. I have had difficulties with the language defaulting to French on my login page and in automated emails. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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!
Read full review Usability
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!

15Five support is quick and helpful. We work with other vendors in the people management space and performance tracking/management who offshore their support or force us into long queues to chat for support and it just doesn't support our needs very well. 15Five is responsive and speedy. We constantly evaluate our vendors for their support and have switched vendors in the past in other areas because of limited support capabilities

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.

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.

Javelo.io is the primary platform my company uses for reviews and interviews; the other products mentioned primarily serve as HR management and organization (such as PTO requests, employee handbooks & guidelines, salary calculator, org structure, and benefits enrollment). In that regard, Javelo.io offers a more social-focused approach to HR that is well-suited for performance reviews and interviews.
