Manage multiple companies in Gusto (for admins)

Gusto admins can manage multiple Gusto accounts under a single login (email address). Other Gusto users, like employees, can also have more than one profile associated with a single email address

Some reminders

Add or manage companies (using a single login)

    • To manage a different company account, click Switch company—you'll only see other companies that have the same email address on file as the one you're currently logged into.
      • If you do not see the option to switch company, you may need to make sure all companies have the same email address on file for you. 
      • As a reminder, you cannot select (or change) the default company that appears when you sign in.
