    Without Personio

    The old way
    • Bothersome backlog: Employee requests piling up on time tracking, absences and more.

    • Payroll panic: Trying to work with complicated and chaotic lists before each payroll cycle.

    • Rising costs: Manual, paper-based processes and unnecessary double-work stressing budgets.

    • Dusty databases: A lack of clarity on expiring contracts, updated payslips and critical deadlines.

    With Personio

    The new way
    • Inbox zero: Freed-up capacity by giving employees the ability to manage their everyday tasks.

    • Peaceful payroll: Automatically-transferred, salary-relevant data sent to preliminary payroll.

    • Reliable ROI: In payroll, recruitment, employee retention and overall organisational effectiveness.

    • A clean machine: All your HR data in one place — compliant with automatic reminders of key dates.

        Frequently asked questions

        When is the right time to invest in a solution?

        In a small business, it feels like there are a million tasks all happening at the same time. The same is true for an HR department. Probation periods wrapping up, new employees onboarding or getting key contracts signed.

        Whether your company has 10 or 100 employees, the right time is now. Investing in a solution today means laying an immediate foundation for future growth. It's all about investing in a system that reduces costs and increases flexibility. All while adding a foundation of security and clean data to the mix.

        How do you choose the right SMB HR solution?

        Our recommendation: invest in a user-friendly system. Make it quick and easy for your employees to complete their tasks. The best way is to see things for yourself. Personio offers a 14-day free trial (with no credit card or cancellation required). 

        Or, we can also give you a practical introduction. Sign up for one of our 30-minute webinars for a proper introduction. You can watch it anytime.

        Can digitising your HR wait?

        Waiting comes with a cost. While you may not notice them at first, the cost of cumbersome processes adds up. 

        An unsigned contract, a frustrated employee, a slow hiring process. When your processes slow down, so does your business. To make this crystal clear, let's hone in on data. HR needs to track a lot of sensitive and confidential data. If that isn't secure, you run a high risk. A data protection violation alone can cost you up to €20 million, or 4% of the company’s turnover. 

        Digitising your HR means saving on costs in the long haul. But, it also means saving yourself from immediate costs, too.

        How can HR software help my company grow faster?

        HR software helps your company grow. Automating recurring tasks, reducing workloads and gaining time back. Now, your HR team has the time to focus on retention, culture or people analytics. All things designed to enable growth. 

        Digital HR processes also help foster collaboration. Employees can work better, together, with automation and workflows. Basic HR tasks, like vacation requests, take seconds. Employees are happier, more productive and ready to take your business to new heights.

        "A lot of other HR tools are really great at engagement and performance, but don’t have a recruitment function. Or, they are really good at payroll but they don’t have anything to do with performance. Personio offered a good balance of everything we needed."
