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.


How can I set up the integration between Workademy and Personio?

Workademy will extract employee data from Personio and map it over to your existing attributes on Workademy.

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.
