Meet our Customer Team
We live our values in sales, support, and success, and especially our value “Think like the Customer” is dear to us. Our approach is centered around helping every customer truly understand Small Improvements and its capabilities, so you can foster a healthy culture of ongoing feedback in your organization.
We live our “people-friendly” company mantra in Sales too, priding ourselves in the personal touch we provide in guiding prospects through their evaluation journey. We know the platform and the HR space like a second language, never over promise, and give evaluators the information they need to make the best decision for their company. We focus on the achievement of the team, not the rep — and our team is only successful if our prospects are. Let’s connect!
Our customer success team is your strategic partner working 1:1 with you to ensure you realize your goals and that you have confidence in the tool. In order to do so, we’ll set up an onboarding call via screen sharing to ensure your roll out is as successful as can be. During this, we’ll talk about your timing, cycle and integration set-up, as well as adding your users.
Ongoing, we hope that you reach out to us with questions about the tool or suggestions you think would improve the tool. Afterall, we live by our name, small improvements! And if we don’t hear from you, you’ll hear from us – we made it a habit to reach out twice a year on average to share the latest product news and ask for your feedback.
Our support team is core to our customer happiness and retention strategy. We pride ourselves in quick turnaround and in-depth solutions. If we can’t answer a question immediately, we’ll ask the development team for help the same day. And if it’s complicated, we’re happy to pick up the phone or even set up a screensharing session to get to the core of a problem as efficiently as possible.
“I’m at my third start-up and have been a Si customer for over 3 years now. I have been consistently impressed with the speed and simplicity of the support provided.“
VP of People, Dashlane
“The tool is fun to work with, the Small Improvements team is fun to work with, it just increases my happiness!”

How we work
We are all empathetic to our customers and enjoy listening to their needs to help identify ways that the tool can assist. We do this answering support emails, on calls, and even in person at their offices or at HR events. In case there’s a problem that can’t be solved within the tool, we see it as an opportunity to learn and suggest improvements to the product team, making things easier for all future users.
We’re a 50% remote team and travel frequently, this means we’re even more reliant than everyone else on using our tools efficiently. The remote nature of our work requires that we have a clear process for each step with a person in charge to ensure consistency and fluidity. This ensures that evaluators and customers get the best experience when interacting with the team.
