Aboard is a platform that helps teams deliver exceptional employee experiences. Whether it's onboarding, offboarding, role transitions, or relocations, Aboard has reimagined HR and People programs to create tailored journeys that match your people. With Aboard you can automate tasks, coordinate all team members, and provide the new employee with an experience like never before.

Aboard's integration with Greenhouse Recruiting allows teams to do more with less. As soon as candidates are marked as hired within Greenhouse, they'll automatically be added to Aboard, and their new employee journey will be automatically drafted and activated. New employees will receive a tailored onboarding experience depending on the role, department, and location they're joining.

Use the Aboard integration with Greenhouse Recruiting

When a candidate is marked as hired in Greenhouse Recruiting, they're automatically exported to Aboard as a member with the following information:

  • First and last name
  • Personal and work email
  • Title
  • Start date

Aboard then creates a draft journey and includes any default programs, and notifies all Super Admin via email or Slack that there's a newly drafted journey.

Note: Aboard syncs Greenhouse Recruiting data once per hour.
