Time-off 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.

  • 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.

  • Individualized absence quotas

    Consign a quota policy to each absence. Determine, for example, that only two days of vacation per month can be taken during the trial period.

  • Employee Self-Service

    Let employees request vacation and record sick days online themselves.

  • 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.

  • When sick, give reminders for, and upload the doctor’s certificate

    Stipulate, after how many days of absence for sickness, the employee will be automatically asked to upload a doctor’s certificate.

  • Request a representative in cases of absence

    Let employees choose a representative when making requests for vacation. This person can then accept or deny the role of representative and will be automatically included in the approval process.
