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.

Pros

15Five

  • Flexibility to set your questions by company/team/individual.
  • It is a weekly reporting platform that also has the functionality to do end of year reviews. Having continuity makes the end of year process much more streamlined.
  • Allows individuals to set, report and record progress on weekly goals. These users can then go back later and review these goals and progress throughout the year.

  • Unfortunately our experience was very poor, so I don't have anything for what they do "particularly" well.

Cons

15Five

  • The interface to set up the question frequency is a bit confusing.
  • The 360-degree review functionality is relatively new so there are still some kinks to work out on this part of the product.

  • Transparency about the capabilities of their system. We would have never chosen WingSpan had we had a clear picture of the limitations of their system.
  • Ease of use - as an administrator we found it to be difficult to work with. Of course, improvements may have been made in this area since we used it last.
  • The user interface could use some updating.

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.

We used Cvent following our WingSpan experience. It worked out much better and had more capability than WingSpan.

Return on Investment

15Five

  • 15Five is one of my favorite tools. It has allowed us to keep track of the general morale of the business and to address small issues before they became large issues
  • It has also allowed us to streamline our review process, making everybody's life easier!

SilkRoad Performance

  • I feel it set us back a bit, and also caused us to lose credibility with our management team after it turned out to be a "failed experiment."
  • We have gone back to a manual system of doing goal setting that works better for us.
