How Can I Set Up the Integration of Peakon and Personio?

Before connecting to Personio, please let your Peakon Customer Success Manager know that you would like to use the integration, and they will enable this feature for your Peakon account. You can also write to to activate this feature. Peakon then extracts the employee data from Personio and maps it to your existing attributes in Peakon.

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.

Next, log in to Peakon and navigate to Admin > Integrations. Click on Personio and then on Connect.
