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.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
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.
