Why companies choose Lattice vs 15Five?

15Five helps you establish manager routines. Lattice fortifies that foundation with a comprehensive and flexible people success platform that helps you develop the highest-performing teams.

People leaders are moving beyond 15Five’s manager-focused tools and embracing Lattice as an end-to-end, flexible people success solution. 15Five inhibits flexibility and scale with review processes that restrict customization. You either adopt 15Five’s approach and ideology or end up feeling frustrated. Lattice, on the other hand, enables people leaders the flexibility to personalize and evolve the organization’s performance management experience.

Why do people teams switch from 

15Five

 to Lattice?

Built with scale and flexibility top of mind

Using Lattice enables you to scale across every growth stage. You won't be locked into a prescriptive approach to performance management that can’t evolve to support your People strategy. Lattice is designed to adapt around your organization across every growth stage rather than squeeze you into a one-size-fits-all approach to performance management.

Employee growth and development

15five and Lattice both offer products that provide role clarity and development opportunities to employees, but Lattice is designed for easy administration and maintenance of career tracks and competencies.

Streamlined reporting and analytics

While some teams have concerns about 15Five’s disconnected reporting capabilities, Lattice is purpose-built with powerful reporting features and real-time dashboards that let you access and rapidly gain actionable insights from connected performance and engagement data.

Where 15Five falls short for today’s people managers

Designed primarily as a tool for building young companies' early management practices, 15Five lacks the comprehensive people success tools necessary for employees to thrive in today’s evolving business landscape. Recently, the company acquired Emplify to make an entry into the employee engagement side of People Success. Since they didn’t build it from scratch or fully integrate it with their existing platform, teams find it harder to do the deep analysis and realize insights through the connection between performance and engagement data needed to make truly data-driven decisions. 

15Five’s solution also leaves much to be desired in the area of career growth and employee development — which is why people leaders who are committed to their team’s growth look to Lattice for their people success needs.
