15Five helps with checking the pulse of a company, without the complexity

Working at a remote team - the leadership team needed a way to get a temperature of how the whole company is feeling and solicit ideas. At most jobs, managers walk around and do a visual checkup, or gauge people's reactions in a meeting. That paints a very tiny window to the company. Someone having a bad day and showing it in a meeting doesn't reflect how the whole company feels.

15Five fills in that gap. We used it as a whole company. Once a week, all employees (including the CEO) answers a bunch of prompts. Questions like, "How is your workload? More/Less?" and "What as a company should we START/STOP/CONTINUE doing?" As well as, "What examples of our core values have you seen?" Your direct superior, along with the CEO would review and provide feedback if necessary.

It was a safe space to share your ideas and thoughts, as well as identify key people who are helping move the company forward. Many of the ideas brought in 15Five were later discussed in meetings and became projects or solutions to issues. Often, 15Five was a start to a hard conversation in the company - one that improved the culture for the better.
  • 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.
  • We didn't use all the features - so I'm not sure if it exists. But would the following:
  • A cloud word bubble to identify common phrases that may need to be addressed.
  • A way to measure if people are happy/sad based on what they say.
  • A way to review prior 15Five easily to see if there's patterns. Unsure how this looks.
15Five is fantastic for a company that feels they don't know what their employees are thinking. The culture should have a sense of trust and accountability to solving a problem.

It's less appropriate if the culture is already dead. If people are afraid to share their thoughts in person because of a lack of trust, 15Five isn't going to help it. It's also not a project management tool. Using 15Five to track progress is the wrong way to use it.

15Five is being used across the whole organization. It solves communication hurdles for offices spread across the country. We also use for performance management, OKRs and recognition programs. It keeps the company all on the same page when it comes to performance.
  • Company, department & individual goals are all in one place and easily accessible.
  • Performance reviews are user-friendly.
  • Improve the OKR module, more visually appealing.
  • More trainings for new employees.
15Five is a helpful resource really for any company and any size. It can also just be used for departments. It is a great way to record performance, contributions, etc.

My 40 -person team is dispersed across the United States. 15Five is our weekly "meeting space," and also serves to manage each individuals short, medium, and long-term goals for their careers.
  • Keeps a pulse on their weekly intentions
  • Allows easy management of 1-on-1 discussions for my managers with their teams
  • The fact that we use this for a Monday meeting and 15Five seems more geared to a Friday deadline is an annoyance.
  • I'd like to see more integration with other services to lessen duplication of things like OKRs and 1-on-1s.
There's a misperception that my team gets benefit because we are remote, but I've used this with internal teams as well with the same benefit. If you're looking to truly keep tabs on how your team is thinking, 15Five is a great way to do it (but you have to OWN the questions - it's not magic).

We use 15Five as a virtual weekly check-in. We are a remote company, so we do not have the luxury of meeting in person. 15Five is a great way to provide feedback on how our week went, what challenges we are facing, keep on track with our weekly priorities and use as a tool to reference back to and assess what areas we have been successful in or what areas we need to improve in based on previous feedback. 15Five is easy to use and helps build camaraderie among team members.
  • Boosts morale by being able to give shoutouts to other team members!
  • Acts as a resource to reference back to in one-on-one meetings.
  • Helps keep you on track with your priorities.
  • Currently, there is not an area I can imagine that needs improvement.
15Five is a great tool for interacting with remote team members. With not being able to interact on a daily basis, 15Five helps keep us in the know about the overall "temperature" of each employee. It's a great way to build community and boost morale, even from a distance. This provides a platform to raise concerns/challenges we are facing so we can connect to resolve any issue.

15Five is used within our Early Head Start Grantee program to address reflection on the work and the impact we are having in the communities we work in as well as the impact the work is having on us, both individually and as an organization. We have a focus on the relationship in our line of work so we use 15Five to discuss our successes and opportunities around building strong relationships with our partner sites and the children and families we work with.
  • Providing reports to show use.
  • Sending summaries.
  • I did not get to experience any two way communication if 15Five provides that.
  • I was told that cost was a barrier to our continued use and we were not provided options to work with our not for profit status to continue since our grant funds ended.
15Five is well-suited to retrieve feedback from a team of people doing the same job in various counties across the state. 15Five is great for making sure that a supervisor and team members set reminders to follow up on specific topics that may get lost due to when they come up. I also think 15Five is great to use to highlight what a team is excelling in and areas of opportunities.

15Five is being used across our organization as a means for employees to be able to recap their experiences weekly for the manager to review. It is a quick and easy way for managers to get a sense of how their workforce is performing and, more importantly, how they are feeling. It allows employees a confidential place to bring up any issues they might be having or mention anything they accomplished that they are proud of that week.
  • User interface is easy to use and intuitive.
  • Provides a confidential line of communication between employees and managers.
  • Could be easier to check if your 15Five has been reviewed.
If you are looking for a great way to encourage your employees to consistently write down their thoughts, feelings, and accomplishments every week, 15Five is an excellent way to do so. These weekly check-ins can then be reviewed by managers and also anyone else you may choose to allow them to gain insight into the current state of their workforce.

We use 15Five across the entire organization. It has become an invaluable communication tool. As a remote organization, it helps us by providing a user-friendly tool to communicate with team members and to track trends. One of the best features is the 1:1 tool. It is a great way to keep a running list of important topics for 1:1 meetings.
  • Provides a great place to track and record 1:1 topics.
  • It is very easy to get a quick idea of team members' work loads.
  • Starting and ending 1:1 meeting is not the smoothest operation.
I think 15Five is best suited for smaller companies. It is certainly effective for managers with fewer direct reports. I'm not sure how it would work with very large teams. Of course, I only have practical experience with a small company and team. It may have different features for larger organizations.

Our organization uses 15five for weekly self reviews by the entire company. It keeps people responsible for what they do and keeps things transparent.
  • Ease of information entry
  • Simplistic design
  • Easier to preview old 15fives
  • "Liking" a comment within an email instead of having to open another tab.
Well suited for weekly reviews, not appropriate for yearly reviews at this time. I think 15five should create a function to create a yearly review for you based on what you've entered in throughout the year.

We currently use 15Five for weekly inter-departmental communication, as well as for the 1x1 feature. The products are extremely easy to use and offer a great way to engage team members "on the fly". The 1x1 has been great in helping to assist in tracking assigned tasks, creating better accountability. I highly recommend these tools as a way to strengthen your employee engagement.
  • Ease of use: simple UI with easy actionability.
  • Record keeping: since actions live in a platform tied to a user, you always have history to refer to.
  • For my usage, I have no additional requirements currently.
This has been a great way to provide action items, to hold, and to follow up with my team, and for myself.

We initially piloted 15Five with a few team members to test its capabilities. Within the last quarter, we have maximized its usage across our Placers team. We have found that 15Five keeps us aligned with regard to performance reviews, quarterly objectives, key results, monthly, and weekly activities. It has been an excellent tool that allows us to give and receive feedback from leaders and co-workers.
  • 15Five encourages creative thinking and problem-solving.
  • 15Five provides the right platform to keep you organized.
  • Would be great to add more to the performance review section-comments around metrics.
  • Optional weekly questions could use a refresh as they follow a pattern around culture and a vision for what you want to do in 6 months—getting a bit stale.
15Five is relevant to everyone in our organization no matter his/her position. Everyone needs to consider his career path and the flow that gets you there. It's factors like performance and meeting KPI's that contribute to overall success. Secondarily, 15Five gives insight into how someone does or doesn't "team" well. Great to provide an environment where we are encouraged to recognize someone else's Nth degree behavior.

The entire global organization is using 15Five. We were seeking a tool that allowed our employees to express their needs and feelings in a quick and easy nature. We did not want a tool that was not used or was heavy to learn. 15Five is simple, straightforward, easy to use. I believe this makes it more likely that employees will use it and managers will as well. We can also report our in a realtime fashion to push consistency. I feel 15Five meets the needs of our organization which has a dispersed workforce generally between the ages of 26-45. We have seen more employee engagement and managers listening and improving.
  • The 15Five team (2 people) held a webinar that showed employees and managers how to use the product.
  • The product workflow/emails/reminders sent to employees and managers drives them to give feedback.
  • Reporting showed one employee that needed help and we were therefore able to bubble up the employees feelings and concerns and get them addressed and answered and therefore prevented turnover.
  • I think this product helps prevent actual live communications. It just allows employee and manager to just type back and forth. But reality is this is better than zero interactions happening.
If you are looking for a simple solution that effectively engages, it is a good product. Our account reps have great energy and enthusiasm and respond very fast to requests.

15Five is utilized across our organization to manage weekly priorities and engagement, 1-on-1s, employee achievements, and annual reviews and objectives.
  • 15Five provides a consistent method of setting weekly priorities and tracking completion of those items.
  • 15Five provides a convenient tool for recording items to be discussed during 1-on-1s with managers.
  • The questions asked during weekly 15Five surveys can become repetitive and do not always apply to every employee.
  • Reporting and dash-boarding could be stronger.
The tool has a lot of features that can be a challenge to navigate or maintain if you try to implement all of them. I would say pick the 1 or 2 features that can help your organization the most. Don't try and do everything.

15Five is being used in our organization as a tool to manage employee 1 on 1's and track progress. We also use it for our annual reviews. We like the visibility tools and the high-five feature, which allows employees to publicly thank other members of their team for a job well done.
  • Makes employee reviews and 1on1's very easy to manage.
  • Improves company culture and the team feel through the High-Five feature, which allows for public recognition of co-workers when they go above and beyond.
  • Questions are repetitive weekly, though this may be a function of our administrator, and not the platform itself. Answering the same questions every 2 weeks is an awful lot like the movie Groundhog day.
  • Give employees at all levels visibility into the "How are you feeling" score to get a pulse on the entire company at once.
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.

We are a small company without an HR dept. 15Five is how we check in with the team and discuss anything that needs to be addressed!
  • Pulse ratings: How are you feeling?
  • High fives: Who is doing a great job?
  • I feel the, "what are you doing this week" questions aren't useful for us and end up being a little redundant. Could make those optional. I prefer long term goal check-ins.
  • One on ones: not really sure how they work.
15Five is excellent for our company—we do not have HR staff and most of us are generally very busy. This is a good way for us to check in with each other and make sure everyone is feeling good about their job/nothing is slipping through the cracks! It's difficult to get people to use it and fill it out every week, but when they do, I think it's useful.

The engineering department uses 15Five to keep track of 1-on-1s and do weekly check ins. It has really me keep track of my conversation topics in one on ones, and when I see things consistently coming up I know it's important to me. The weekly check in functionality is also great because it gives your team an outlet to express their feedback in a more indirect way. Often answers to the seemingly innocuous questions will give you and your manager something interesting to talk about in your next one on one, or might give shy employees a different outlet for delivering feedback on how the company is doing in certain areas.
  • Quick, responsive, and minimalistic UI.
  • Great outlet for receiving indirect feedback from employees that you can follow up on.
  • User engagement can sometimes be inconsistent amongst teams and could benefit from a more involved customer success experience.
I think 15Five is great for a small to medium-sized organization, or even department to implement for more visibility into the health of your employees' mental state. Not only does it allow people to voice opinions in an alternative way, but it promotes giving shout outs which creates an atmosphere of positivity and encourages people to lift each other up. It feels good when you receive the High Five email because someone gave you a shout out! We have struggled to get all of our employees to use it, however, which is something to watch out for.

We use 15Five for scrum updates on our team, and to hold each other accountable when working cross-functionally. It addresses the issue of updating our manager on what is occurring across the entire team and if anyone has any additional blockers that need to be accounted for. If our manager is happy with the work and timeline we are on then he will give us a high five.
  • High Fives because they encourage.
  • Submitting updates which keep us honest and productive.
  • Could use a strong function for project based work
  • More innovative ideas for cross functionality
A specific scenario where I think 15Five is successful is when it's revolving around project management and each team member can provide some type of content on what they have been working on. If documentation could be added that would make it even better because the team members could provide feedback on the documentation since it's design work. Scrums also work really well with this particular software. I wouldn't use it for teams smaller than 10 or bigger than 100.

We use 15Five across our entire organization to keep a pulse on employee sentiment and to track weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. We also use the 'High Five' feature to give props or shoutouts to coworkers who have done something noteworthy or exciting in the last week and then read those out to the entire company.
  • Track employee sentiment.
  • Track personal and professional goals progress.
  • If 15Five added payroll it'd be a truly unmatched HR tool.
  • Could use more robust analytics, would come from additional questions.
15Five is perfect for any size company that is trying to improve or grow their HR department.

We use this within our entire company to track objectives, and also to keep in tune with each other as co-workers and managers about the work being done on a weekly basis.
  • Easy user interface makes it quick and easy to complete each week.
  • Easy to access information on others and see what they are working on.
  • Objective tracking is very limited and not very robust.
  • Not flexible for different organization types. We have had several requests for different ways of using it which have not been doable.
Keeping up to date on weekly work and progress was great. Using questions to dig in on certain topics with co-workers was also great. Using it as a way to track progress to goals was cumbersome as was the "best self-review" function.

The whole organization used 15Five on a weekly basis to take the pulse of the employees, ask questions about their project, and congratulate each other!
  • Very easy-to-use interface

  • Love the auto-questions asked in the internal surveys each week
  • If the problem you have is with the reviewing manager or company leader, it's hard to be honest
I think 15Five is well suited to help a manager or company leader monitor a team and environment. It provides a place for feedback and to ask questions, and to share with your team.

I think it can be hard in a small-team setting where feedback shared is about the manager or company leader who is reviewing the 15-five. It creates a gap where an employee may not feel they can be honest.

  • More customisation with objectives and with way it is set up would be great.

It's being used across the entire organization to help people effectively track and manage their goals, and to help managers keep their teams accountable. It's also being used for EOY reviews, as it already houses the day-to-day data, and allows people to easily access that info to create a more holistic overview of their annual progress (or lack there of).
  • Incredibly easy to use with a simple, yet appealing UX
  • The week-to-week oversight forces people to think about work in chunks, which I find helpful
  • Reviewing your team's data is also really simple/easy and I like that you can provide comments on both individual tasks, as well as their progress overall
  • I love that the company can ask questions of everyone across the board and switch those up week-by-week. It gives a ton of insight into things that might otherwise be hard to capture in real time
  • I HATE that you can't go back to a 15Five to add goals for a certain week; we submit on Fridays...sometimes things change on Monday and there's nothing I can do
  • I like that I get email reminders, but it's way too many (there's probably way to slow these down, but I'm too busy to figure out how).
  • I found the annual review process confusing - our Head of HR had to tell us when to press submit, etc. to ensure our teams saw things at the right time.
I actually think it's well-suited for most companies. For start-ups, it gets people in the right mindset and holds them accountable. For larger companies, I like that you can report on how your entire team is doing and how things are progressing over time. Again, it's simple, straightforward, and easy to use. But it does lack some sophistication that might be important to others (being able to make changes, the ability for managers to run their own reports, etc.).

We are currently using 15Five to report on goals, accomplishments, roadblock, and ideas on a weekly basis. This helps business leaders stay up to date with everything that's happening within their respective business lines. This process also helps employees keep track of their short and mid-term priorities as they fill out their weekly 15Five reports.

Anybody whose job does not involve similar tasks day-in-day-out fills out a 15Five report every week (that's about 300 employees).
  • Weekly goals and accomplishments: This is the core of what we use 15Five for. Any employee with varied daily job responsibilities fills out a 15Five report that mentions their accomplishments for the week that went by and their goals for the upcoming week. Wash, rinse and repeat.
  • Customizability: 15Five provides a lot of options to customize the questions that employees need to answer on their weekly reports.
  • Tagging: You can tag your colleagues in your report, so it's a great way to get somebody's attention within the company.
  • Visibility: Individual 15Five reports are visible to everybody up the chain, so it's a great tool for business leaders to get a pulse of the organization.
  • While it is possible to generate custom reports based on historical data, the interface is not very robust. For instance, you cannot filter your reports based on, say, departments.
15Five is a great tool for a weekly pulse check of the organization: goals, accomplishments, roadblocks, and ideas. One of the scenarios it is not very suitable for is for structured performance reviews. Also, the tool is naturally not useful for people whose job responsibilities are not dynamic or do not change from day-to-day.
