About 15Five

Supporting people in living extraordinary lives, both in and outside the office

Our Mission:

To create highly-engaged, high performing organizations by helping people become their best selves.

Our Vision:

Unlock the potential of every member of the global workforce.

Our Story:

15Five originated from founder David Hassell and his deep desire to help people reach their fullest potential at work.

During David’s early days as an entrepreneur, he was introduced to a practice called “15/5,” where employees were encouraged to spend 15 minutes writing a report that took a manager no more than five minutes to review. This practice highlighted critical information and avoided the common trend of bad news traveling slowly.

David recognized the potential value of this practice for high-performing teams or companies.

Inspired by this method, David created a strategic solution that would allow these 15-minute reports to be turned into the most productive conversation of a workweek.

Today 15Five is a leading people management solution dedicated to creating highly engaged and passionately fulfilled workforces. Our evidence-based solution works to deepen the connection between employees, managers, and peers by empowering transparency, meaningful conversations, and effective feedback.

Each of 15Five’s strategically designed features offers a holistic and continuous approach to your people management strategy. With OKRs that align everyone around top priorities, weekly check-ins that take the pulse of team morale, 1-on-1s that remove roadblocks, High Fives that recognize success, and our trademark Best-Self Review that supports employees on their journey; we use proven development methods to drive businesses forward.
