People Sync plugin
This plugin will allow you to see which team members managed in Deel have a corresponding Hibob profile.
Finding matching profiles in Hibob is the first step to configuring your integration because we sync data only for matched profiles:
EOR Time-Off plugin
This plugin makes HiBob the source of worker time-off reporting when using Deel.
You will need to authenticate via User Service ID and Token to use the time off plugin.
Please note that this feature is not available to customers that have authenticated via API Key.
If you have authenticated via API Key, you can re-authenticate by clicking the More button on the top right of the integration, and then selecting the Re-Authenticate option.
Once configured, any team member working as a Deel Employee for your team will enter time off into HiBob instead of Deel. This will only happen for Deel employees linked to a HiBob profile, which you can confirm via the ‘people sync’ plugin.
Each Deel time-off type needs to be matched with at least one time-off type from your HRIS to complete the plugin setup.
You can find all relevant information on how to manage time-off within HiBob here.
[ACCORDION] How do I match Hibob and Deel user profiles?
Matching Deel and Hibob users is a critical step for our integration because we sync data only for profiles that are matched.
Our integration matches profiles via a check of the user's email address. If the email provided in Deel finds a Hibob profile with a corresponding email, then we link those two users.
If any of your users in Deel cannot be located in Hibob, this is usually because we can't find a matching profile in Hibob.
To resolve this issue, please make sure that all users in Deel have a corresponding user profile in Hibob, and that the profile in Hibob uses the same email address stored in Deel.
