HRIS Link features

HRIS Link works by processing reports from your HRIS and importing data to Greenhouse Recruiting every 15 minutes at :00, :15, :30, and :45 past the hour. Reports are accessed by a customer-provisioned ISU and should be published as a web service (like Reports as a Service or Raas). 

HRIS Link will validate the report, check for errors, then create or update data in Greenhouse Recruiting as needed, allowing your organization to manage the structure of jobs at scale, while managing the nuance like recruiting, sourcing and interviewing in Greenhouse Recruiting.


HRIS Link reports can be modified at any time by your organization, allowing full customization and extensibility without the need for technical assistance. A summary of each integration run with success and error details is sent to a single email address selected by your organization​.
