15Five

15Five is a great platform, but it's very simplified and in the 4+ years that I've used it as an employee, I don't feel it has been changed or improved at all. While I'm sure there have been some minor updates, it has stayed virtually the same, which again leads me back to the feeling of "Groundhog day". Data collection plants the seeds for the future of any business, and the need is obviously there, but the monotony of it from an employee's perspective can also contribute to a decline in job joy. Overloading employees with reporting tasks across dozens of software platforms can lead to a major lack of productivity. As for where this platform is suited - in any organization that has a large number of entry-level employees who are all learning at different paces, with a great deal of upward mobility potential, this could be a very useful way to collect feedback and focus career development. In an organization full of senior-level employees with limited upward mobility who are results (or income) focused, this will be seen as an absolute waste of time and disrespectful to senior employees.

Peakon

Peakon is a very simple way to get valuable feedback about your company. For very very small teams, it would be difficult to keep the results anonymous even though Peakon aggregates responses for small teams. Aside from that, it's difficult to think of a company that wouldn't benefit from such a quick, clean survey every few weeks. Especially in large companies, where leadership can start to get separated from the levels below, this sort of feedback is critical.

Pros

15Five

  • The technology - 15Five manages all the organization of questions/submissions, and reminders.
  • Simplicity - 15Five isn't difficult to set up. And all of our users found it very easy to interface with.
  • Great features - You can add as many answers as you want. You can tag people. You can do a lot with it.

Peakon

  • Peakon looks beautiful and feels very light, which is comforting when you're (potentially) giving negative feedback and feel anxious. The emails are friendly and the survey is super clean.
  • The surveys are very easy to navigate. You can answer as many or as few questions as you like, skipping forward and backward, and choosing to provide comments when you want. It's low pressure and feels flexible.
  • The HR department is able to respond to your comments. You can then have a back and forth conversation while remaining anonymous. This really helps employees further explain and contextualize their survey comments without identifying themselves personally.

Cons

15Five

  • Although I mentioned customization as a positive aspect, it could use some improvements. The backend process of updating the questions, and setting them to a certain schedule, can be a bit confusing. This process could be streamlined.
  • The commenting process can be a bit confusing. If a person is tagged/mentioned in a comment, they are typically sent an email notifying them. However, it can be difficult to locate where you can reply and continue the conversation. Although a simple issue, it seems it could be easily rectified.
  • I would like to see more integration of the team portion of 15Five. It seems this feature is not as prominent, so you can easily get stuck in just your specific 15Five information.

Peakon

  • There doesn't seem to be a way to see my previous responses to survey questions. I would be very interested to see how my answers have changed over time -- that would be a great insight.
  • The questions never change. As a user, I don't know if this is because our HR department doesn't change them or inflexibility on Peakon's side, but it can make filling out the survey over and over again a chore. Sometimes when a problem persists, it feels like my comments are just going into the void.
  • The number rating system (NPS) isn't always the best way to respond to some questions, although there is always the option to provide written context to your choice.

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.

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've used Asana and Jira. Jira has too much functionality for a team like ours and Asana didn't have enough gamification for our team. At the end we chose 15Five because it was simple to use and easy to follow, it also allowed the manager to review each individual on the team quickly and effectively.

Peakon

SurveyMonkey is a great survey tool that also allows responders to stay anonymous, but I think Peakon is more effective for corporate feedback. It offers more reports and analytics specifically for HR and feels more professional. We often use SurveyMonkey for more lighthearted surveys (e.g., what to eat for team lunch) while keeping Peakon for employee feedback.

Return on Investment

15Five

  • For me, the ROI is immeasurable. I don't know how I could manage my team without it.
  • For the second year running, my team has been rated as "most engaged" by our annual HR survey. For a company with well over 1,000 people globally, I'm proud of this! Without 15Five, I dont know if it would be the same.
Shane Murphy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Peakon

  • When HR makes changes based on the feedback from Peakon, it increases employee happiness and engagement. (On the flip side, if survey responses are frequently ignored, it can make employees feel even more disconnected.)
  • Because employees can stay anonymous through Peakon, they are more likely to give important honest feedback they might otherwise be too afraid or shy to say.
  • Peakon streamlines communication with HR. Employees know the survey comes every two weeks and may hold off on bothering HR with minor feedback and wait instead for the survey. This can help save time and consolidate employee feedback in one place.
