Personio

The all-in-one HR software for HR management, recruiting, employee performance, payroll and much more.

About Personio

Personio is the all-in-one HR software for small- and medium-sized companies with 10 to 2000 employees. Personio’s solution includes human resources, recruiting, and payroll, all while supporting a company’s core HR processes. People Workflow Automation, a new category of HR software launched by Personio, ensures cross-departmental, automated processes and seamless integrations. More than 5,000 customers in over 100 countries use Personio. In October 2021 alone, Personio received $270 million in Series E funding. With a valuation of $6.3 billion, Personio is Europe’s most valuable HR tech company.

Unlike other HR solutions, Personio covers employee management, recruiting, payroll, and onboarding, so HR can perform all core people-related tasks from one place. Highly efficient processes are enabled by centralized data and automated workflows. An example are the Personio Posting Bundles, where your company’s open positions are promoted on the most relevant job boards in only one click – and at an exclusive price just for you, too! Having accurate people data in a single system of record enables HR to gain insights while optimizing processes. It provides you with actionable insights that provide a holistic and reliable view of your company’s key workforce data to make data-driven decisions. For greater efficiency and complete data security, the seamless integration between DATEV’s payroll software and Personio allows you to send important payroll data with only the click of a button.

This collaborative foundation, through Personio, helps HR to be truly effective. Customized access rights allow employees and managers to access information in the system independently. Employee self-service supports seamless collaboration on people-related tasks, from candidate assessment to onboarding and development. Templates and workflow automation minimize manual overhead, like creating employment certificates, calculating vacation entitlements, or rejecting candidates. Built-in task management and reminders help the team stay on top of tasks and priorities, to seamlessly avoid bottlenecks.

Personio is designed to make it as easy as possible to integrate into third-party solutions, so you can design your own unique best practices. Other specialized solutions (e.g. travel expenses software) can be seamlessly integrated into Personio. The data from the integrated system is then automatically synchronized to ensure that you have all information centrally available. An entire overview of every possible integration can be found in the Personio Marketplace.

Overall we are very pleased with Personio. Other than being a comprehensive piece of software their customer support is exceptional. They are incredibly helpful, professional and friendly. The webinars are a great feature as well providing a perfect way to gain deeper insights into the platform.

Pros

Its incredibly user friendly making it accessible even for those with limited IT skills. It offers remarkable flexibility and adaptability, particularly in the seamless integration of administration and recruiting tasks. Personio streamline nearly half of our workflow, allowing for excellent employee involvement across various processes. The role assignment feature is highly effective and well planned.

Cons

It would have been nice to be able to integrate it with a few other software. We dont have any complaints though. Personio certainly does its job really well.

One of the best HRIS in Germany

Reviewed on 09/09/2019

Pros

It's the best HRIS that I've tried so far. It has tons of features, attributes and process that we can customize according to our needs. The support is very fast, helpful and friendly.

Cons

Sometimes it is a bit complicated to use, but it comes with all the features and configuration possibilities. I am missing a couple of features, like an overview of the employee's promotions/titles and reports indicating promotions.

very negative, started ok, but worsened over time- support is very bad - just "here is a link and read about it on our helpdesk page" - there is not time for that- had to push to even get in touch with my account manager- no notification on automatic ANNUAL renewal - this i find very unfair; if we are locked in for another full year and still need to renegotiation the conditions, would expect a call well in time so we can decide to cancel- issues with vacation day calculations

Pros

european based company, fairly easy to navigate

Cons

customer support is very unhelpful, the tool is immature, there are a lot of logic mistakes - e.g. no room for error - if you mess up, you cannot correct it, you need to delete the whole user.

We've ad a great time so far with Personio for our HR work. We first set it up when the company was a lot smaller, and it's held together very well during our expansion. It has a very simplistic interface which is a big positive for us, the reporting features work well, and the ATS module is very detailed and has a lot of advanced features. 10/10 would recommend.

Pros

The interface is much more up to date than the other tools we evauated. This made it a lot easier for us to start using it fully in te beginning, and has made it easy to maintain since.

Other than that, we really enjoy the automated workflows for setting up alerts, emails, etc.

Cons

It was missing a couple integrations that we really wanted, and there's the odd bug here and there, but we don't really have anything too big to complain about

On the whole very satisfied. The tool covers our complex requirements very well. Feedback is processed quickly. Personio develops quickly which is mostly positive. Sometimes there are smaller obvious errors with releases. We use the SW over 3 countries. This works quite well. Partly one notices, that it was primarily developed for the German market (e.g. with withdrawals and holidays adaptations).
Otherwise, it is a great relief for us compared to the many manual processes we had before. It requires relatively little to no instruction effort for the employees. We have only adapted the presentation of Personio and handed it over to the employees and this works well. Many things can be configured so that you also have control over the data that is captured.

Pros

It can be easily configured. The fast implementation. Good and fast customer service. All inquiries are answered within 24 hours (weekdays) and 80% of inquiries are resolved within 24 hours. Usually within 6 hours. The software is constantly evolving and is becoming even more customer-friendly.

Cons

Partly the red thread through the SW is missing. For example, the date can only be recorded with 24/12/2019 at one location while it must be recorded with 24.12.2019 at another location. There are newer reports, especially in recruiting, where the figures are not correct. Further input fields do not always correspond to the same logic. So you have to be careful in the salary area if you overwrite a number in the salary field, an additional "0" is added. Just some small things.
