The employment status field indicates a new hire's type of employment, such as full-time or part-time. You can use this field to automatically assign specific tasks and E-Signatures through a new hire's onboarding plan.
The employment status field includes four default options, which you can update to match your organization's unique needs. In this article, we'll cover how to add a new option to the employment status field.
Add a new employment status field option
From your Greenhouse Onboarding homepage, navigate to Settings > Company Info > Fields.
On the Fields page, scroll to Additional Information.
Click Employment Status to edit the field.
On the Edit Field page, scroll to Selection Options.
Under your existing field options, double-click an empty cell in the Display name column.
Next, type in your new field option's display name. This is how it will appear to other users across Greenhouse Onboarding.
If your team uses a third-party task system that requires field mapping, you can enter the integration's matching field value in the External value column. Double-click the external value cell next to the new option you added, then enter the necessary external value.
Repeat the above steps to add as many employment status field options as needed.
Click Save when you're finished.
