Absence management

The recording and administration of holidays, sick leave, and other types of work absences using Excel and Co. requires a deep understanding of various formulas and functions, as well as good organizational abilities, in order to avoid descending into chaos. HR – Software, that has been specifically developed to solve these problems, offers a much simpler and faster solution.

Effortlessly transfer your absence categories into Personio


Configuration of your own absence categories

Create your own absence categories, such as working from home, training, or maternity leave, and adapt them to your organization’s regulations. Determine, for example, if leaves of absence only apply during the working week, if half-day leaves are possible, or if leaves of absence can be transferred from one year to the next.

Employee Self-Service

Let employees request vacation and record sick days online themselves.

Custom approval steps

Individualized approval processes

Define an approval process for each absence. Determine, for example, that requests for vacation days must be approved by the direct superior and an HR-Manager before they can be accepted into the Personio system.

Easy to use
