What does the integration between WeThrive & PeopleHR do?

The integration is a one-way flow of your employee records from PeopleHR 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 PeopleHR to WeThrive:

  • Email > Email

  • First Name + Last Name > Name

  • Job Role > Team

  • Location > Location

  • Department > Department

  • Reports To > Manager

  • Unit (leave empty)

Note: 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.
