Naman Khan, Chief Marketing Officer at Personio, said: “Personio has already enabled 10,000+ European HR teams to have more impact and focus on what matters. HR professionals are a special community that manage so many functions critical to an employee including on-boarding, performance management and payroll, to name a few. By removing the admin overhead & complexity they currently face, they are able to finally focus on the real work of empowering their people, not the ‘busy work’ of HR operations. I’m looking forward to partnering with and learning from Europe’s vibrant HR community, it’s a wonderful mission to support.”
