As a People Ops leader, you’re probably finding that your plate has never been more full than it is right now. You want to focus on how to create the best employee experience for your people, especially new hires, but your efforts constantly get interrupted by hours of manual (and often repetitive) tasks of inputting and updating employee information in multiple tools. 

It can be tough to manage even the smallest updates at scale—especially when you have a ten-mile-long to-do list waiting on your desk. 

With Oyster’s new BambooHR integration, you can free up your calendar to focus on the bigger picture. We’ll take care of the small stuff. 😉

Let’s dig into how it works. 

Reduce time spent on repetitive tasks

The pandemic and the Great Resignation have put a spotlight on the extremely important role People Ops plays in how a company attracts, hires, and retains the best talent. 

It’s no surprise the HR tech market is growing exponentially, and People Ops leaders now have an extensive HR tech stack at their disposal. From must-haves like payroll management and HR information systems to employee engagement tools, People Ops leaders have their hands (and desktops) full. 

That being said, a packed to-do list doesn’t make seemingly small details like employee addresses, start dates, or countries of residence any less important. In fact, it actually makes it more important to ensure your employee data is accurate. And the best way to achieve this is through automation. 

With Oyster’s new integration with BambooHR, you can start streamlining operations today. Our HRIS (human resources information systems) integration means you’ll no longer need to manually re-enter Team Member data into multiple systems, and you can guarantee a smooth handoff from Talent Acquisition to People Ops for new hires with our ATS (applicant tracking system) integration. 

How the BambooHR HRIS integration works

This integration is free for all Oyster customers and can be enabled in just a few clicks. With the integration active, you’ll be able to sync your HR tech stack and eliminate the risk of errors or duplicates while inputting employee information. 

To activate the integration, you’ll just need to follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Integrations tab in the Oyster platform
  2. Look for the BambooHR HRIS integration and click Connect
  3. Enter your BambooHR subdomain
  4. Log in using your BambooHR credentials
  5. If you want to check the status of the integration or delete it in the future, go to BambooHR HRIS settings

And then you’re all set!

How the BambooHR ATS integration works 

Like the HRIS integration, the ATS integration is free to all Oyster customers and is simple to set up! Once you connect BambooHR ATS to Oyster, hired candidates' data can be imported from BambooHR into Oyster. You can then hire the new Team Member through the Oyster hiring flow with relevant candidate’s details imported. 

To activate the integration, you’ll need to:

  1. On the Customer Admin Dashboard, navigate to the integrations tab 
  2. On the integrations page, click on available integrations and select BambooHR ATS and click connect
  3. In the dialogue box that appears, enter your BambooHR subdomain and click submit
  4. BambooHR ATS should now appear in your “My Integrations” tab

The key to greater efficiency and cost savings

At Oyster, we want to facilitate People Ops leaders’ success by integrating our platform with the tools they’re using regularly and helping them streamline the end-to-end global employment process. That’s why we’re so excited about this new partnership with our friends at BambooHR! 

After all, connected tools enable effective collaboration across functions, bringing the entire company together in creating the best experience for Team Members.
