ESG Policy

Personio is about unlocking the productive potential of SMEs, thereby Enabling Better Organizations. But, we care just as much about having a positive impact on our community and environment, as well. That is why we are committed to challenging and improving ourselves through the choices we make with our customers.

We believe that it is important to integrate Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) issues in our sales process to operate in ways that align with our commitment to social responsibility and transparency.

From time to time there may be situations where Personio doesn’t wish to pursue a commercial relationship with select customers related to our commitment to ESG – this may exclude certain companies operating in a number of specific industries including Military & Weapons, Tobacco and some select others.

Moreover, we are committed to thoroughly reviewing incoming requests from any of the EU- and UN-restricted countries due to issues related to chemical weapons, cyber-attacks, human rights, and terrorism.

If we believe that parts of a company’s offer are not compatible with our conviction and commitment, we will refrain from cooperation.

If you’re not sure about your eligibility for cooperation, or if you have any questions in regards to this matter, please reach out to
