To use the HR system with the Staffbase platform, we have introduced the HR Service specifications. These specifications will help you create an API, which can interact with the API of your HR system, such as Workday, ADP or Kronos. This way you easily integrate your HR system with the Staffbase platform.
The main component in such integrations is the web service that acts as the connector and it is built for the specific HR system. Usually, all HR systems offer similar processes. Based on that, our service specifications cover the main use cases and enable you to build your required web service.
