Greenhouse Onboarding's ADP Workforce Now integration provides a one-way sync and allows your organization to collect new hire information in Greenhouse Onboarding, then provision employee accounts in ADP.

  • The integration only syncs with the HR + Payroll System template in ADP and must be enabled
  • Due to required fields such as SSN, only US-based new hires can be synced to ADP
  • The integration doesn't support the transfer of documents, emergency contacts, managers, or other custom fields
  • The integration syncs active new hires only (versus pending hires) and as such, doesn't support ADP onboarding, E-verify, and electronic I-9s
  • A default State Worked In is required for all new hires added to ADP. This can be updated any time from their employee profile

Step 3: Forward ADP company code to Greenhouse Onboarding

To find your organization's ADP company code, navigate to an employee's profile in ADP and copy the company code. You can also receive the company code from your ADP Client representative.

Step 4: Confirm ADP HR + Payroll (System) template is active

From your ADP account, navigate to Setup > Template Management > Hire/Rehire.

Your organization can modify this default information for individual employees from their ADP profile once they are added to ADP.
