What is Workpath?

Workpath is a cloud-based software for aligning, updating and keeping track of corporate, departmental and individual goals and targets (OKRs) on an ongoing basis. Workpath allows you and your teams to give each other feedback and to exchange information about learnings and progress towards goals and targets through regular check-ins.


How Can I Set Up the Integration of Workpath 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 Workpath account as the account administrator. Navigate to Settings > Organization > Settings > Integrations, then select Personio from the list. Next, enter your Client ID and Client Secret generated in Personio. Click on Save & Import to import employees from Personio into your Workpath account.



Which Data Is Transferred?

After integration, the attributes first name, last name, email address, supervisor and position are transferred to your Workpath account. During the integration, Workpath automatically creates employee accounts and sends invitation emails to all active employees once the import has been successfully completed. If you do not wish to invite employees directly to Workpath, you have the option to disable automatic invitations by deactivating the corresponding checkbox.

After the import, you can view the active employees in your Workpath account under Settings > Organization Settings > User.


If the status of an employee in Personio changes to Inactive, they automatically lose access to the Workpath account.


How Much Does It Cost?  

The price for using Workpath depends, among other things, on the number of employees in your company. Please contact Workpath directly by email to
