Small Improvements overview

Small Improvements is a performance feedback platform that helps employees and companies grow and succeed. Small Improvements covers Ongoing Feedback, Performance Reviews, 360 Degree Feedback, and Goals and Objectives.

It’s a highly configurable suite that is easily adjusted to the needs of companies between 50 and 1000 employees. It integrates with other tools such as BambooHR, Okta, Google G Suite, Slack, HipChat, and is used by 700+ customers worldwide.

Small Improvements enables the HR team to set up very fine-grained performance reviews and 360 degree feedback processes, and helps guide employees. We’re working with many companies ranging from 50 to 1000 employees, so most use cases of mid-sized companies can be easily modelled with Small Improvements.

Based on all feedback collected, staff can set up their objectives for the quarter, work on problems and play to their strengths. Objectives can get shared with managers, the team, or the entire company, so it’s easy to get valuable feedback from others.

Our product contains advanced support for regular 1:1 meetings, supporting managers and team members alike. Meeting can be prepared using shared (or private) talking points, and notes can be stored either in shared or private form as well. In addition, ongoing feedback such as Praising a coworker for a job well done, or requesting feedback any time from peers, helps keep people in the loop and reduced the needs for heavyweight end-of-year reviews.

I use Small Improvements to manage the objectives of my software development team. I use the Objectives and Key Results (OKR) method, which works pretty well with Small Improvements. I just list the key results in the description of the objective. The comments can then reference one of the key results. Originally we set the objectives semesterly, and they got lost amid the day-to-day work we do. We then changed to quarterly objectives, and that works much better. I work together with my employees to set the objectives, and they know pretty well what they need to accomplish throughout the quarter. It is important that the tool sends out emails to remind people of their objectives. I can really see how employees are working on the objectives throughout the quarter. - Manager and employee can continuously add comments to an objective to document milestones achieved, praises given, or changes in the objectives. At the end of the quarter I just read through them to come of with a rating for the objective - Daily digest to employees shows them when comments are added to objectives, and reminds them to log in to the system and keep a running update on their objectives - Performance reviews are done in writing by both employee and manager. Only after both parties see each others review we meet in person to discuss. This gives both parties the chance to think about the review of the other party, which leads to a fruitful discussion.

The start for our company into Small Improvements Review System couldn’t be easier. The explanations on the website for employees, manager and as well for me as an HR user couldn’t be easier understandable. After set up off all user accounts and introducing the tool to our team, they direct way started to work with it. Some small corrections by awesome quick help of the really kind consultants of Small Improvements, gave us the possibility to complete a review of 2012 for the whole company within two month. All employees embraced the system with a positive feedback. I am brim with enthusiasm for the Tool and look forward to work with it in the upcoming successful years at Turtle Entertainment.

This seems like a really nice and innovative company. They provided us with a nonprofit license and it is so greatly appreciated!I got our annual review process out to everyone within minutes. It's all online and there's no paperwork to deal with until you print the very final version and put them in the folders. The other neat thing is the "Praise" feature. Although I would like greater participation, I have it synched with Slack so that staff can put in almost no effort to praise their colleagues in such a way that it's recorded to their personnel files. That's awesome.

I've enjoyed using this system to track and share my performance review over the past quarters. We use this software do complete quarterly check-ins for team members. This helps you reflect on what you've achieved quarter after quarter and Small Improvements makes it easy to track, review previous quarter's goals, as well as, share your review and 360 feedback with your manager.

Overall, small improvements has been with our company for over 2 years, and it is used widely. It's a key tool in keeping track of our company, departmental, and individual goals. Overall, we have a positive experience with it, but I'm not sure if it's fully worth the cost.Small improvements has a really intuitive interface, and is incredibly easy to use. I like that we can see everyone's goals, company wide. Great tool for transparency.
