Map candidate pronouns and pronunciations to Greenhouse Onboarding

Permissions: Owner

Product tier: Available for Greenhouse Welcome and Greenhouse Onboarding subscription tiers

Greenhouse ensures candidate pronouns and name pronunciations added during the interview process in Greenhouse Recruiting are automatically mapped to new hire profiles in Greenhouse Onboarding. With field mapping, your organization receives better data consistency and more inclusive onboarding.

New hires and current employees also have the ability to self-select, edit, or remove pronouns directly from their employee profiles.

Setup instructions

Edit access of personal pronouns is turned on by default for all users in your organization. Click here for more information on user permissions. 


By default, all users can view candidate pronunciations transferred from Greenhouse Recruiting; however, add/edit and delete access is currently unavailable in Greenhouse Onboarding. 

Note: Only candidates hired after March 9, 2022, have their pronouns and pronunciations mapped to their new hire profile in Greenhouse Onboarding. If your organization was created prior to March 9, 2022, edit access of pronouns must be manually enabled for each user group in your organization. We also recommend deleting existing custom fields.
