The check-in is the heart of 15Five and it gives you a voice to get the support you need from your manager. Think of it as your work journal, to share your progress or any roadblocks you may have when it comes to what you've been working on for the week, and to reflect on future goals and tasks. Still not convinced? We've got the science to back it. As a reporter on the Free Plan, you will have access to your weekly 15Five check-ins (as well as a few other 15Five features).

High Five basics
High Fives allow employees to show each other appreciation whenever they do something awesome and they are an integral part of 15Five. It isn’t always the big wins or gestures that merit appreciation. Look around and you’ll likely notice dozens of small moments worth celebrating. It could be someone’s demeanor or attention to detail. While extremely simple, the aftermath of giving and receiving a High Five is unparalleled. There is an art and science to giving meaningful High Fives. See below to dive into the details of High Fives.

Engagement+ surveys are inspired by research spanning four psychological sciences. The Full Potential Index questions look beyond engagement to measure employee thriving. With an understanding of the things that truly motivate people, like personal-strengths alignment and feeling valued, you can help your company unlock everyone's highest potential. 15Five’s three-tiered approach leverages technology, education, and services, and they’re all rooted in science to promote positive behavior change. You may be asked to complete an Engagement+ survey as an employee.
