History of 15Five
15Five was created from founder David Hassell’s deep desire to help people reach their fullest potential at work. Even during David’s early days as an entrepreneur he was always soliciting ideas and feedback from employees and colleagues. He responded with his own ideas, suggesting things to study or programs to take that would help people grow personally and professionally.
In 2011, David connected with Brad Oberwager, CEO of Sundia. Brad was then using a practice called 15/5 reports in his 100+ employee multinational business. The process highlighted critical information from employees and avoided the common situation of bad news traveling slowly. David immediately thought it would be valuable for any high-performing team or company.
