What does the integration between WeThrive & breathe do?

The integration is a one-way flow of your employee records from breathe to WeThrive – this means you do not have to manually update WeThrive when there are changes in your organisation.

What information is copied across?

Below shows the field mapping from breathe to WeThrive:

  • Email > Email

  • Known Name + Last Name > Name

  • Division > Team

  • Location > Location

  • Department > Department

  • Unit (leave empty)

  • Line Manager > Manager

  • If you have any extra custom fields in WeThrive these will remain blank when you sync your data.


WeThrive uses the email address as the unique identifier for each of your employees.
For the sync to work everyone must have a unique and valid email address.

WeThrive uses ‘Team’ as the primary data label. The sync from breathe is set to map ‘Division’ to ‘Team’ in WeThrive.
For the sync to work all of your employees must be allocated to a Division
