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.

Reflektive

Reflektive is well suited for medium to large organizations where cross-functional work is a regular occurrence. It isn't meant to be used for employee reviews, self-reviews, or take the place of a corporate communications platform; rather, it is meant to do one thing - serve as a public soapbox and repository for giving and receiving employee gratitude.

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.
Rocky Kev | TrustRadius Reviewer

Reflektive

  • In larger organizations, it is difficult to communicate and share news with everyone without sending all-agency emails. Reflektive lets you provide that feedback or recognition for everyone to see, but saves your inbox from unnecessary emails.
  • The weekly roundup email highlights a few of the most recent recognitions. It’s nice to see a brief highlight, without having to get notifications for each post.
  • Reflektive let’s you tag multiple people in a post, so you can thank a whole team in one post.

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.

Reflektive

  • Reflektive often didn't do the best job informing users about the product changes we could expect to see.
  • Oftentimes, it was hard to know exactly who would see what in the system. We had to go to our customer service rep for a lot of questions that we wished were more thoroughly explained in the help center.

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.

Reflektive

My company selected Reflektive due to the competitive pricing and clean and easy to use interface. We could tell up front that the software development team was going to partner closely with us to make our experience great! We preferred the collaborative approach articulated by the Reflektive team in comparison to large incumbents in the space. If you really want to take rewards and recognition to the next level -- choose Reflektive

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

Reflektive

  • The more people write about me, the more I get recognition and rewards from wall posts
  • The C Level group loves my contributions which gives me more visibility
  • My AEs compete to write about me, which gives me more confidence to improve their opps
