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.

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.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

15Five

Asana isn't necessarily a performance tracking tool but we tried to use it in a way that would work. 15Five is much better since it specializes in this area specifically.

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

  • It is extremely difficult to gauge ROI for a tool like 15Five, but as a company, we've found a lot of value in it for byte-sized, weekly performance management.

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.
