In this article, you will learn how to integrate Workademy in Personio. You will get an overview of all the requirements, and instructions for installing the integration with the Personio employee data API.

With the Essential Plan you can only use the chargeable DATEV integration. From the Professional Plan onwards, you have Recruiting API Access and can use an unlimited number of integrations of your choice. If you need Personal Data API Access, this is possible with the Enterprise Plan.


What is Workademy?

Workademy is a Learning Management System with an intuitive inline “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) course builder that enables anyone in a company to share knowledge in the form of online courses. These courses can be shared both internally and externally. 

Once you have access to your own personal workspace, you can also incorporate Workademy Premium content on topics such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for developers or German for beginners.

The workspaces come personalized with your company’s brand.
