My Growth Section in Best Self Review®

A small but an important addition to Career Paths & Growth Plan release: “My growth” section is now available in Best Self Review® - My Results - Summary tab. This is a simple and easy way for an employee to create career goals while having a review conversation with their manager or reviewing results from a review cycle. Released 3/25/22.


Organizations can sync group type and attributes with the same name

15Five accounts that have a group type and attribute with the same name can now sync that data through the engagement integration.


Manager reviews can be edited after a calibration session is initiated

Previously, once a calibration session was initiated, managers lost the ability to edit their manager reviews. With this release, a manager can edit any portion of their manager review up until the manager due by date. If there are calibration sessions created in the cycle, managers will only be able to edit the non-PMA sections of the review at any time before the review is finalized. Released 3/10/22.

Competencies have a new home in feature settings!

Job competencies are demonstrable and measurable clusters of knowledge, skills, behaviors, and attitudes that an employee needs to perform their work functions successfully. In 15Five, competencies were historically only used in Best-Self Review® question templates, but with the release of Career Paths, they are now used in multiple features. Now, instead of competencies being managed in review settings, we've added a new section, 'Competencies and Paths' in feature settings. Here, account admins can upload and manage competencies. Released 3/10/22.

Career Paths and Growth Plan

We added two new tabs to 15Five's Career Hub feature! The 'Career Paths' tab gives employees visibility into possible directions of career growth within your organization. This section of Career Hub is intended to be completed after employees get clear on their role, responsibilities, strengths, and career goals in the 'Role Clarity', 'Strengths', and 'Career Vision' tabs. After utilizing 'Career Paths' to become aware of role opportunities within your organization, employees can use 'Growth Plan' to take tangible steps towards their future. Released 3/10/22.

Performance Ratings+

15Five's new Performance Ratings+ feature offers a true aggregate measure of employee performance and intuitive reporting that makes it easy to make performance-related decisions in your organization, bringing your team one step closer to fully integrating performance and compensation. Create a formula that generates a performance rating for your employees based on Best-Self Review® results, create a rubric that determines what category different score ranges fall into, and report on your team's performance ratings...all within 15Five. Released 3/3/22.

"Growth & Development" section now optional on self/manager question templates

Historically, when creating a self/manager question template for your Best-Self Review® cycle, you were required to program at least one Growth and Development question. To add more flexibility, we have removed that requirement. Released 3/3/22.

You can now create custom review permissions to give people only the permissions they need. Released 3/1/22.

Group types with members in multiple groups can be synced to Emplify

We’ve added support to the Emplify system to allow employees to be part of more than one group within a group type. To support this, we updated the Bulk Employee Import tool to be able to import this data (for integrated customers and legacy Emplify customers) and updated the Employee Detail screen to show the all groups an employee is a member of. Released 3/1/22.
