Likelihood to Recommend

15Five

I think 15Five is well suited for any organization but especially well suited for larger teams and/or teams that are in various geographical locations. For small teams that work closely together on a daily basis, the user may not see the same returns since there would be ample opportunity for communication.

YouEarnedIt is great for employee recognition where you don't have time or resources to shout out/recognize people during an all-hands meeting. It allows companies to give the recognition mantle to their peers. I would recommend it to companies that want to recognize individual teams or are looking for a solid peer-to-peer recognition system.

  • The user interface with YEI is done really well. It is very easy for our employees to navigate from giving gold to redeeming gold.
  • It is easy to add new types of redemptions to the "store" and the redemptions are easy to understand for users. They have a picture and a description with each redemption.
  • YEI also has reports that you can run to see different types of metric like redemptions, giving balance etc.
  • Another cool function of YEI is behavior bonuses. An example of this would be that the company poses a challenge and once you complete the challenge, you can go to YEI and click to redeem the gold given for that challenge.

Cons

15Five

  • questions can be redundant
  • Notifications and the reminders seem constant. I'm still getting a "congrats" on my anniversary pop-up every time I log in (from 3 months ago) and I exit out constantly.

Alternatives Considered

15Five

15Five has been a much better solution for our team. The feature suite is much broader and we found that Khorus at the time had a very subjective approach to measuring Objectives and Key Results. 15Five does so much more with one-on-ones, employee health, and performance evaluations. The value difference is night and day.

Both Namely and Hey Taco have their own version of this. Namely has appreciations that you can do through their HRIS platform, that is basically shout outs to employees and Hey Taco is a Slack integration that has its own way to send recognition and also has a redemption "store." Both are nice in their own way. The Namely appreciations is a neat additional feature to the HRIS platform and is especially useful if your employees use Namely HRIS is kind of a hub for them. Hey Taco is fun because it integrates with Slack so if you are using Slack then this is a good additional feature to look at. We were using YEI before these came along and have checked out both but still love YEI. If we had not been using YEI we may have brought in one of these options as a central choice for our employees.
