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.

Quantum Workplace Engagement Surveys and Pulses

This is well suited to give you a guideline of where your company is at and areas that can improve upon. This was our first year so I believe when we continue to use this it will show areas that we can still improve upon and areas that we have improved upon

Pros

  • Goals/To-do lists: 15Five is a great tool for creating to do lists or establishing goals for the week. Employees can add them easily, and check them off when completed. For me, this has provided a helpful visual of what needs to be accomplished that week.
  • It's easy to send information out to anyone in the organization - tagging individuals or @all is an easy way to share information within the platform. Our president is a big fan of 15Five, and she has utilized it as a way to disseminate information throughout our organization. Information can be uploaded in an easy-to-read, easy-to-access manner.
  • Reminders - it's easy to set up reminders within the program, to ensure employees are completing their portion. As an employee, the reminders are helpful in encouraging completion.
  • Customizable questions - direct supports/supervisors can set up different questions to be asked of employees from week to week. This is helpful if there are questions that are needed to be asked weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. Being able to change questions regularly is great.

  • Well designed content. The questions are clear and relevant to various employee audiences.
  • Powerful reporting that line managers can understand.
  • Action planning recommendations are valid and practical.

Cons

  • 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.

  • I'm not often in a position to do this, but I really can't say much...every single time something concerning has come up (which is natural with a new relationship) our dedicated account managers have stepped in to quickly resolve.

I did not have any problems with it. The ease of use was great. If I had a question about anything they would answer it immediately or within a timely manner. They also were one step ahead providing me with information that I would need to know or use. They provide a great product

Very easy system to use. I also like how you can customize your survey to work on certain areas you feel are important at the time. They also provide you with a list of questions you can select from as well as implement any custom questions you feel would be beneficial

Alternatives Considered

15Five is the first performance management system I have utilized.

I had used SurveyMonkey in the past with another employer several years ago. The survey questions used were not great and did not measure what it is we were looking to obtain. At that time, it was also not really user-friendly, but again, this was awhile ago so I am sure they have updated their software since then.Quantum was provided to us free (basic use) from our chamber--which is why we used it. However now that I have experience with Quantam, I will definitely use it again.

Return on Investment

  • 15Five has positively impacted the information provided to our leadership team. Our direct supports feel more connected to their department and are able to resolve issues as they arise, or even beforehand.
  • It has provided a positive impact on the 'kudos' or positive reinforcement our employees can provide to one another.

  • In our first organizational experience with this type of survey, we did not effectuate the department by department action planning the way we should have, so that limited some of our ROI.
  • Survey results were instrumental in reinforcing impressions and employee complaints about some management staff. This enabled us to force changes in the management of people in at least one department. (Reassigning folks to non-management roles, not aggressively terminating low scoring managers.)
  • The use of the survey and subsequent universal reporting of the results opened a new phase of transparency with our staff that, I believe, paid dividends when we faced some financial challenges and were forced to execute a reduction in force. There was a greater willingness to listen to leadership despite strong feelings and anger than there would have been a year before, prior to the survey.
  • When we re-survey this year in December, it will be the second annual survey, not something new we're doing because of the recent staff reductions. This will further reinforce the enhanced communications efforts and transparency.
