Don’t we all somehow still like email? But how to praise someone for a job well done when inside Gmail? How to take a note? How to request feedback?

We’re proud introduce a Gmail integration for Small Improvements.

Everyone likes to be acknowledged for a job well done. In fact, recognizing employees publicly has been statistically proven to have a positive effect on engagement and morale.
