15Five

I think 15Five is well suited for any organization but especially well suited for larger teams and/or teams that are in various geographical locations. For small teams that work closely together on a daily basis, the user may not see the same returns since there would be ample opportunity for communication.

Small Improvements

Small Improvements is well suited to end of year performance reviews (which is how my company uses the service) and next year's goal setting. I am not familiar with other performance review tools in this space, but this one appears quite basic beyond providing a centralized service for submitting and receiving performance reviews.

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • 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.

  • The interface could use an update
  • Doesn't do much more than let employee and manager share reviews with each other, so it could be considered unnecessary

Small Improvements is less capable compared to the competing platforms I have used due it slow and outdated looking UI, feature set, and ease of use

Return on Investment

  • 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!

  • The tool has positively empowered us to chart, track, and report back on goals.
  • The tool has had a negative impact on our ability to conduct personal reviews due to the clunky UI and feature set.
  • The praise wall has been positive for the users that take advantage of it.
