Gusto assigns each employee a unique identifier called the "Gusto employee ID." This is a 6-character alphanumeric ID (e.g. 5G9934) that is securely generated and randomly assigned. The ID enables a better distinction of employees for accurate payments and record keeping.
Most of the time, the ID will be a combination of letters and numbers. Some IDs may be all letters or all numbers.
The Gusto employee ID can be found in a few places in your account—under the Personal tab of an employee’s profile, and as an optional field in the CSV template on step 1 while running payroll. Learn more about how CSV uploads work.
At this time, Gusto employee IDs are not customizable and cannot be disabled.
Use the Employee report builder for a report of all employee IDs.
