We use Small Improvements (SI) at our organization to:
  • Manager 1-1 meeting (it's a space to take notes, followup on action items)
  • Create 1-1 calendar events that repeat weekly
  • Manage 360 peer reviews and formal performance reviews
  • Give praise to teammates

This tool was used for checking in on employee sentiment and facilitating reviews. It was intended to give the management team a quick overview of how all of the team members were tracking at any given point in time. All team members were given access to it to answer their regular questions and 360 degree feedback as well as 1:1s were recorded in it.

Sojern used SI to manage "Critical 3s" for our analytics department (80-100 people), which is a simple way to track three major projects we'd work on throughout the quarter. Our company was pretty flexible with projects and most of our work was ad-hoc, so being able to have very loose guidelines is a great advantage of SI.

My company has Small Improvements for all the departments in the company. Primarily, it is used as a goal tracker and feedback tool. We also use it for quarterly self-assessments.

We use Small Improvements in three majors ways within our organization. The first is for on the stop recognition of a peer, we have four main values which we live by at our company and whenever someone does something around one of those, they're recognized at our daily stand-up call and it is also recorded in Small Improvements. For this alone, Small Improvements has been an outstanding tool given how easy it is to use. The second way we make use of the tool is to track 1:1 meetings between employees and managers. I meet with my manager every two weeks and we just enter the scheduled call into the Small Improvements site and both my manager and I can add items we'd like to discuss during the call. The outcome of the call is that we track what was discussed and any deliverables. The third major function within our organization is for quarterly and yearly performance reviews where employees can seek 360 feedback, enter their self-assessment and receive their review from their manager. The tool is easy to use for this function, everything is in one spot and easy to track for follow-up and progress reports.

Small Improvements holds our org chart, records employee goals, performance, and is a platform for employees to give each other public praise across the business. It is owned/admin'd by the HR team and used by all employees. We use it to track and ensure regular catch-ups between employees and managers are occurring, for individuals to track their progress against goals and to encourage positive reinforcement with praise.

Small Improvements is a basic tool that my company uses for end of the year performance reviews and future goal setting. The program is functional and easy to operate. It helps delineate when an employee should put in their self assessment and when the manager should complete their review. It is totally sufficient for what it needs to provide.

We use Small Improvements as a way to send personal feedback to co-workers across the organization. Furthermore, we use Small Improvements to request feedback, provide 1:1 and 360 reviews, there is also a praise wall for users that want to make their positive comments visible to everyone. The tool also keeps track of personal and company goals, it serves as a resource when conducting regular reviews.

Small Improvements is a great way for us as a company to engage with each other, give and receive feedback, get one-on-one support, meet our personal goals & objectives, and go through performance reviews. It is especially helpful for the review process, as it allows employees to review themselves while managers review them, and keep both reviews free from interference with each other.
