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.

Kudos is especially useful and helpful during project deployment where team members can be awarded kudos and appreciation and motivation for their team efforts in meeting milestones and targets. In some instances, the reward types or gifts may seem irrelevant to some departments in certain regions or my company' operations in other parts of the African continent.
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 One of the most useful aspects of this tool is that it allows you to save the profile of each of the employees individually and to be able to track their activities and give them the recognition they deserve. Another useful feature of "kudos is that the system allows you to assign badges to each profile based on their job performance. I also really like that the platform has a dedicated portal for employees. In which they can see their badges, recognitions and awards obtained for their efforts. 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 Rewards take a long time to be given out, but this I would put on the company's policy. From my own perspective on a mobile phone, it's not so smooth like on desktop, like searching for a colleagues name sometimes is difficult. Sometimes email notifications take too long to come, or they don't even come at all. 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.

I used to work at a company called Sparc that developed its own in-house platform called Teamphoria. It was great software that coupled a lot of the same features as workday but also with a recognition system. Essentially it allocated certain types of recognition levels per month, 1 platinum, 5 gold, 20 silvers, where each was worth a drawing ticket. At the end of the month, someone would be drawn from that pool based on their received recognition and then receive a gift card. However, some abused this system and devalued its purpose and inflated the meaning behind it. Kudos seems to do a good job by having a direct point/monetization system which isn't up for random chance. This can help even incentivize employees to go above and beyond, getting them to work harder since they are receiving recognition for it.
Read full review Return on Investment 15Five opened up many discussions for issues/challenges in the workplace that wasn't available in meetings/during projects/in other capacities. 15Five has opened the door to creative ideas that became projects and improvements. 15Five improved culture by allowing team members in other departments see what others are doing/feeling, making us feel as one company Read full review Incentivizes employee to work harder. Helps with thanking our employees for jobs well done without having just a normal "Thank You." Allows the employees to use kudos for company SWAG or items they may need in their lives and it's all possible to get thanks to KUDOS. Read full review ScreenShots
