Raisin structures the HR department with Personio

Raisin Management


Disorganized Processes – Not an Irresolvable Problem

For more than a year, Raisin has utilized Personio’s HR management tool. Personio found sustainable solutions for problems and successfully handled Raisin’s quick growth along with the resulting greater effort required from human resources.

Endemic Problems in the HR Department

The company’s quick growth meant a higher amount of work in applicant management and the administration of employee data.


“Personio offers a great opportunity for startups to bring structure into their HR processes and to optimize them based on data.”

Problems in Administrative HR Management

The manual administration and approval of vacation requests required lots of time. Besides a compact, companywide statement of absences, there was also a lack of ability to collect specific performance indicators for different departments. Furthermore, communication hurdles and manual processes lead to unnecessary delays in the modifying of employee data.

  • – Manual submission of requests
  • – Lacking reports
  • – Inefficient communication

Problems in Recruiting

The efficiency of recruitment at Raisin was difficult to assess because the performance of individual channels could not be measured. Additionally, candidates were sometimes overlooked, in the absence of systematic processing, and it was difficult to get an overview of all the applications for each position and phase. Reports had to be manually produced and data from various sources collected.

  • – No performance evaluation
  • – Higher administrative expense
  • – Overview of applications lacking

Reasons for the Introduction

A quickly growing company with untapped potential in HR relevant themes needs competent support in the context of efficient systems.


“At Raisin we take data protection seriously and, with Personio, we can work in a way that reflects this and meet all of the requirements. All data is securely saved on the German cloud and the additional security mechanisms are extremely high.”


At Long Last Structure – Measurable Success with Personio

After an introductory talk at the “Zukunft Personal” trade fair, everything went very fast. In a first test phase, Personio convinced Raisin with comprehensive functionality and simple usability. Hosting their cloud solution in Germany, in light of increasing requirements in data protection, was another point in Personio’s favor.

Easing the Burden in Payroll Accounting

Employees working in payroll accounting can concentrate more on the essential aspects because the relevant functions and data are neatly packaged at one location. Employees can, through their Personio user account, independently retrieve and download their monthly statements.
