The next time you use Slack, your boss may have a survey waiting for you.
A company named 15Five now integrates with Slack, and the name says it all: employees take 15 minutes per week to answer questions, and managers spend five minutes reading and responding.
The survey questions show up in a Slack channel, so they’re open for anyone with access to the channel to see. The goal is to foster a more positive environment where employees feel comfortable sharing their insight.
15Five can also be used to brainstorm new initiatives, or get feedback on a product in testing. Whatever it’s used for, the purpose is to bring employees and their managers a bit closer through a more open line of communication.
