Today 15Five is excited to release the next breakthrough for our Transform participants on Total Platform: Manager Copilot, a revolutionary AI-powered assistant designed specifically for managers. This cutting-edge tool empowers managers to elevate their effectiveness by providing data-driven insights and actionable recommendations that drive team success.

Manager Effectiveness: A Catalyst for HR Outcomes

Managers are crucial to your business, pivotal in driving key HR outcomes such as Engagement, Performance, and Retention. Their ability to positively influence their teams is instrumental in achieving these critical objectives.

Effective managers play a pivotal role in supporting and empowering their teams, generating a substantial impact within the organization. They oversee performance management, foster employee engagement, and motivate individuals to achieve ambitious goals.

But managers who lack effectiveness can adversely affect their team members and radically impact the business in a negative way. In fact, according to our 2023 Manager Effectiveness Report, 52% of employees reported leaving a company because of unsupportive management. The same report also found that 56% of employees believe having a good manager is one of the most critical factors for staying at their company.

In many instances, ineffective managers are not inherently “poor managers”; rather, they often lack the necessary education, training, and coaching to enhance their capabilities.

By assessing both the effectiveness and efficiency of managers and identifying opportunities for their growth and development, you can devise a data-driven strategy to enhance managerial effectiveness. This approach allows for a proactive plan aimed at improving the performance of managers.

Yet, being an effective manager isn’t easy.

Managing multiple direct reports comes with its challenges, from tracking individual team members’ progress to consolidating scattered information from various sources. Especially for newer managers, getting help right when they need it can be really tough. When faced with a new problem or question it is difficult to find someone who can give you the exact advice or guidance you need, right then and there. That’s the struggle many managers go through. When they’re dealing with a tricky situation or need answers fast it can be frustrating and leave them feeling stuck. What they need is immediate access to the right help, tailored to their exact circumstances.

Manager Copilot provides the solution, enabling managers to stay seamlessly updated on their team’s real-time status while proactively identifying strategic actions to provide optimal support.

  • 1-on-1 Data: Understand the frequency and quality of interactions, fostering stronger connections.
  • Recognition: Understand engagement through recognition frequencies like high fives.
  • OKRs and Goal Status: Track progress against objectives to align team efforts.

This holistic view empowers leaders with an aggregated perspective on team performance and engagement. Most importantly, it equips managers with answers to the crucial question: “What action should I take right now to support my team effectively?”
