How it Works

The Kudos-BambooHR integration makes managing your Kudos employee engagement and recognition program even easier! New employees are automatically added into your Kudos account with all future changes to information automatically synchronized into Kudos. Termed employees are automatically archived in Kudos when their work term ends. When configured, Kudos can also automatically celebrate your team’s Years-of-Service awards and Birthday. Note: You can disable automatic sync. Automatic sync will sync user data automatically once per day. You can also manually do the sync.
