Integrating with BambooHR


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. Additionally, as of April 2018, BambooHR has updated their platform to comply with GDPR regulations.

Imported information:

  • Photo or avatar (depending on your account settings)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Job Title
  • Department
  • Personal Email address
  • Personal phone number
  • Gender (EEO enabled accounts only)
  • Ethnicity (EEO enabled accounts only)
  • Candidate resume

Setting up the integration

You must be an admin in Workable to set up this integration.

To start, log in to Workable:

  • Click your profile icon in the upper right 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 , your subdomain would be my_company)

Exporting candidates to BambooHR


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.
