What is Small Improvements?

Small Improvements supports managers and employees to engage in a conversation and create a culture of continuous development. Small Improvements offers 1:1s meetings, performance reviews, 360-degree feedback sessions, goal setting, analysis of retention data, pulse surveys, and features to value colleagues.

Employees can set goals, share their appreciation of each other, give and receive feedback to and from colleagues, and complete easy check-ins.


How Can I Set Up the Integration of Small Improvements and Personio?

You need to generate new API credentials for this integration in Personio at Settings > API credentials. In most cases, when selecting an integration in the drop-down menu, the system automatically preselects the system attributes that need to be read or written by the integration. You can always add or remove attributes manually if they are needed, or you wish to do so. For more information on how to do this, have a look at our help center article on how to generate and manage API credentials.

After you have generated the credentials, log in to your Small Improvements account as the account administrator. In your administrator role, navigate to Administration > Integrations > Personio. Now go to your Configuration tab and enter your Client ID and Client Secret, which you generated in Personio. Also decide if you want automatic imports to be performed (changes in your Personio account will be automatically reflected in your Small Improvements account).


When you click on Import, specific employee data stored in Personio is imported into your Small Improvements account
