Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Personio was set up to automate and simplify HR tasks with a single software. This means reducing admin and accelerating efficiency with data and processes seamlessly integrating with each other.

What sets Personio apart from its competitors is the fact that its solution covers all the core HR processes that are key to every company’s success and can be performed in one place. This gives HR professionals the time and energy to focus on more strategic topics like talent development and employer branding. Personio has over 10,000 customers, among which are 1.5 million employees using its software.

With substantial funding from multiple investors, Personio is focused on growing the tools it offers as well as expanding into what they describe as “people workflow automation". With 1.7 million small and medium-sized businesses still stuck in the spreadsheet era, Personio will deliver even more value to businesses in years to come.
