Connect your Workable and BambooHR accounts to seamlessly export candidate information to your BambooHR account. When you hire a candidate, their details are transferred to BambooHR as a new employee.
Candidate information exported to BambooHR:
- Photo or avatar (depending on your account settings)
- First name
- Last name
- Job title
- Personal email address
- Personal phone number
- Gender (EEO enabled accounts only)
- Ethnicity (EEO enabled accounts only)
- Candidate resume
- Start Date / Hire Date
- Copy of offer letter PDF (if signed by the candidate)
- Custom fields (contact your Account Manager for information about options for exporting custom fields)
Note: The Hire Date that is sent to BambooHR is determined by either the start date set in an offer letter (using the [start_date] variable) or the start date set when filling a requisition (with Hiring Plan).
If neither offer letters or requisitions were used, the date that the candidate was moved to the Hired stage is sent as the Hire Date.
Setting up the integration
To start, log in to Workable:
- Click your profile icon in the upper right, click on Settings and navigate to Integrations
- Under HR Information Systems click on BambooHR
- Enter the subdomain for your BambooHR account (it is the first part of the URL you use when you access your BambooHR account, for example in https://my_company.bamboohr.com , your subdomain would be my_company)
- Click Connect Workable with BambooHR
Exporting candidates to BambooHR
Auto-export; In the Integrations section of your account, under BambooHR, there is an option to enable auto-export for hired candidates. When this switch is set to ON, any candidate who is moved to a Hired stage in your pipeline will automatically have their details sent to BambooHR.
Manual export; When the auto-export switch is set to OFF, you'll need to manually export candidates to BambooHR. A button will appear in the toolbar for candidates in the Hired stage. Click this button to send the candidate's details to BambooHR.
The candidate export can only be performed one time. Updates made in Workable after the export will not be synced. Instead, the candidate's details in BambooHR should be manually updated.
