15Five Wins Best HR Tech Solution Focused on Midsize Businesses


We are pleased to announce that 15Five has won the prestigious Talent Management HR Tech Award from Lighthouse Research and Advice. For more than ten years, the Lighthouse team has been serving HR, talent and learning professionals with practical research and advice. The purpose of this awards program is to help buyers and employers understand some of the best companies in the industry for technology selection needs.

As part of the application process, we explain the problems our technology solves, submit this customer case study, share a demo, list key differentiators, and provide some insight into our unique people-centric culture. Below are some snippets from the app. And while we’re definitely honking our horn here, we also want to recognize our beloved employees and customers without whom we wouldn’t have won.

The problems we solve

Modern organizations are plagued with ineffective management, woeful turnover, and disinterested employees who fall short of performance goals. Here are two examples of the ways 15Fives helps solve these problems for our clients:

  1. You may remember that in early 2020, the entire world of work shifted to remote and hybrid. 15Five’s then-fledgling Transform product, which offers live and on-demand training and coaching, was introduced by HR to many organizations to improve managers’ skills in leading remotely. This produced business results such as reduced turnover and increased commitment to align teams and save HR time.
  1. Many organizations use 15Five’s complete HR Tech platform to help curb turnover and improve employee experience. We share an example of how a client used two of our products together to increase retention, measuring sentiment more effectively and flagging potential churn risks early. Product 1 is Perform, which includes an onboarding tool, weekly checks, pulse checks, and performance reviews. Product 2 is Engage, 15Five’s engagement survey product.

key differentiators

In addition to pioneering performance management, being designed to drive business impact, renew performance review, and offer coaching and coaching for managers, 15Five stands apart in the way it creates connection in a world of hybrid/remote work. .

15Five’s mobile app comes with all the features available on the desktop version and consistently outperforms the competition, as evidenced by an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars on the Apple App Store, with 5,300 reviews. In contrast, apps from 15Five’s biggest competitor have average ratings of 2.8 and 2.6 stars. (We also won a Gold Stevie Award for our application this year).

The company behind the HR Technology

One need look no further than our vice president of people, jennie yang, to understand the type of company that 15Five is. Jennie was featured in HR Executive Magazine for being a HR Rising Star 2022, an honor awarded to just six out of a record pool of applicants. He won for leading the development of a compensation philosophy and program designed to attract, motivate and retain talented employees who are highly engaged and high performers. An important factor was ensuring that the rewards are fair and equitable to all team members.

Additionally, 15Five has led the industry in cutting-edge benefits. These include flexible time off, which is untracked but requires meeting performance metrics and goals, 16 weeks of paid parental leave for birth, adoption, or foster care for birth and non-birth parents, military leave, paid sabbatical, and mental health benefits. .

To find out what benefits people want, 15Five asks directly and has created a culture where people aren’t afraid to speak up and have the right channels to do so. Many of our benefits have come to fruition through passionate employee advocacy. As an example, based on what we learned from surveying our people, we implemented Thursday without meeting all the company. We encourage people to set aside Thursdays for deep, uninterrupted work.

We have many more exciting product developments planned for 2023! Please stay tuned…
