    Small Improvements

    I'm honestly not sure why my company chose to use Small Improvements. We used Lattice before for the all the same use cases I mentioned here. The employee performance review feature might be a bit better in Small Improvements, but the goal-setting tool and the 1:1 tool are very weak. I may not have benefitted yet from all the features that Small Improvements have to offer, but so far it looks like a pretty basic HR tool with much better alternatives out there. If it's cheaper than the competition, that might be the only argument to go with it.

    Staffbase

    Staffbase is well-suited for companies who want to drive and measure employee engagement through meaningful content. I wouldn't recommend it for companies that maintain a complex SharePoint environment with years of legacy content. It is not intended to be a CMS system. It is a dynamic platform that makes it's easy to share information through the mobile or desktop app and email and push notifications. You don't need a large team to manage it.

    Pros

    Small Improvements

    • Take shared or private notes tied to each week's 1-1 meeting
    • Remind each other of open action items until they are checked off
    • Manage the performance review cycle

    Staffbase

    • Easy to use back-end for posting and managing content—you don't have to rely on IT for support.
    • Software update releases are included in the licensing fees. No need to get outside developers involved in making changes to the platform.
    • Employee segmentation is extremely easy with an API from your HRIS system.
    • Translations are a breeze!
    • Creating forms on the go is easy and efficient!
    • Use your existing organization's SSO for ease of use and security.

    I never had to contact their support so far. There's no "N/A" option so I'm going with a neutral "5".

    Small Improvements

    Lattice was able to link in with core OKRs whereas from my memory, Small Improvements didn't support this goal setting and tracking framework. While it was good for sentiment and management frameworks, it was unable to connect with the greater company vision as well as Lattice - that was the reason that we moved.

    Staffbase

    Since we selected Staffbase, they are one of a few companies that haven't been acquired or changed its business model. We would have invested a lot of time and money rebuilding our intranet otherwise.We selected them because of the standard features included, the free updates, and the reasonable licensing fees. They understand the value of communicating with non-desk employees and keeping them engaged.

    Return on Investment

    Small Improvements

    • It helped keep my goals on track, both in documentation and email updates.
    • It helped free up my manager's bandwidth to focus on other tasks.

    Staffbase

    • Engagement levels increased for non-desk employees without access to a PC.
    • We leverage the tool as part of our crisis management activities, without having to invest in an additional platform.
    • We can issue surveys quickly without investing in additional engagement tools.
