15Five streamlines team reporting, jump starts productivity

This new startup seeks to take the complications out of functioning better as a team, taking the endless hours it typically takes to produce employee reports. This new tool can add a function to a young or small company that hadn’t even considered it previously.

Tools for bosses, team leaders

Employee management is just as important as staying within budget, networking with like-minded professionals, and streamlining your professional productivity and staying on-task during any given workday. And yet, employee management often gets pushed onto the back burner so the focus and attention can be placed on immediately-lucrative projects. It’s true, however; effectively managing your employees is time-consuming and tedious. But it doesn’t have to be. A new company, 15Five makes sure of that by providing a methodical, organized, and effective way to submit, receive, and compile weekly employee reports.

With the downturn of the current economy, one of the first things to go out the window was employee morale. Now that the job market is harsh and unforgiving, some business owners have discovered that employee morale is no longer as important as it was in a healthy, competitive economy. With less job opportunities, many employers know that their employees aren’t going anywhere, even if they’re unhappy. But that isn’t any way to run a successful or noteworthy business. 15Five’s professional solution can boost employee morale. It can also keep your employee reports organized and focused.

A simple premise to simplify your life

According to their site, “15Five is based on a simple idea. Have each employee spend 15 minutes a week writing a report that takes their manager no more than 5 minutes to read. We’ve taken that idea to the next level by turning reports into conversations, and making it simple for managers to roll up the most important problems, insights, ideas and success stories.”

15Five’s reporting system has a basic question and answer approach. Instead of leaving the focus of the report open-ended, which can cause long-winded and abstract reporting, you have the option to include specific and detailed questions for your employees to answer in their weekly reports. Questions could include that week’s challenges, successes, or new ideas for the company. These simple weekly reports will show your employees that they’re welcome, needed, and appreciated, and it will give them a regular, consistent, dependable method for expressing concerns, questions, and innovative ideas.
