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

I think the survey would work for any type of scenario where a company is truly wanting to measure engagement. The survey can be tailored to tap into various things the organization might want to assess, which is a big benefit.

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.
  • The results are published in easy-to-read and understand charts and graphs.
  • The results are tabulated for year-over-year results.
  • You can drill down to individual departments.

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.
  • Making more recommendations on action items that you can work on and how you can roll them out in your company.
  • Instead of giving you all of the suggestions when you look for ways to use your action items they could make it to where the ones that are related to the actions items are the only ones that appear.

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 have used Gallup, Survey Monkey, as well as consultant-led survey, prior to discovering Quantum Workplace.

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.
  • Our survey results have probably had the most effect on communication across the organization from the top to the individual departments and has also had an impact on management development. We have used the survey for the past four years and have implemented quarterly staff meetings, a corporate communications platform, and a CEO blog. As a result our employees feel included and value the opportunity to put their questions to the CEO.
