Introducing 15Five’s Evolution as a Strategic Command Center for Performance Management

Dr. Jeff Smith
Chief Product Officer at 15Five

Our newest enhancements include executive insights, strategic action planning, and AI-guided manager support, unlocking the power of existing people data to drive higher performance, engagement and retention.

Only 2% of CHROs think conventional performance management practices are actually working. 


The conventional approach has been stagnant for decades, but the last thing HR teams need right now are more needless tactics added to their already overburdened plates. 

That’s why we’re so excited to announce a major platform evolution for 15Five, giving HR teams a powerful new way to understand the intersection of employee performance, engagement, and retention data, implement strategic action plans, and track measurable impact.

Every performance review, employee engagement survey and other HR program yields a wealth of untapped insights. 15Five is giving HR teams the power of their data, helping them see and identify what matters most, broker action through managers, and track the impact at every step.

A strategic command center for performance management

15Five’s HR Outcomes Dashboard is further evolving as a strategic command center for performance management programs, empowering HR leaders to easily explore their own data and develop strategic action plans with leaders and managers.

Our newest capabilities include:

  • Trending insights and data visualizations: Historical trend lines for employee performance, engagement and retention are automatically generated from existing people data. This creates a shared understanding across the entire organization, clarifying what’s working and what’s not.
  • Demographic and performance filters: New filters give HR teams total control over analyzing how HR outcomes vary across demographic attributes such as age, gender, and department, as well as by performance designations and engagement levels. These filters provide deeper insights into specific groups, enabling more targeted and effective HR strategies.
  • Executive dashboards: HR teams can customize and share executive level dashboards with the rest of their leadership team, creating real-time views of performance, engagement, and retention metrics alongside the biggest opportunities for action. This streamlined view helps HR leaders align their leadership teams around swift, impactful decisions tied to key business goals.
  • Centralized, strategic action planning: Once HR leaders commit to a recommended course of action, they can organize their team’s efforts into coordinated campaigns aimed at specific HR outcomes. HR teams can assign specific strategic actions to relevant managers, including tailored 1-on-1 talking points or on-demand manager training aimed at specific skill gaps. From there, HR teams can track progress, hold people accountable, and measure impact.
  • Progress and impact reporting: Enhanced reporting tools show detailed changes in how HR programs are performing, allowing HR leaders to track the impact of their actions over time. By seeing the direct correlation between HR actions and outcomes, leaders can validate their strategies and make necessary adjustments to drive continuous improvement.
