How to create a new account?

(Note: The following section is only applicable for business owners. Individual employee accounts are generally created and assigned by the company’s HR department within the first 24 hours of employment, although the time frame varies from one organization to the next. So if you’re an employee, feel free to skip to the next section.)

In order to access the platform, you will need an account. If you haven’t signed up yet, click on the following link to get started:

Once you’re on the sign up page, simply fill in the form. You’ll need to provide basic information such as your full name, working email address, company name, number of employees, and company phone. You’ll also have to create a new password to access your Gusto account. After you’re done filling out the form, click “Get Started.”

It’s worth mentioning that before being able to fill out the registration form, you may be required to answer a few questions to provide some background information about your company. This is done to find out if Gusto is a good fit for your business.

How to Login to your Gusto account?

Logging in for the first time

If you’re trying to access your Gusto account for the first time, you’ll need to go to your email inbox to look for a welcome message from your HR team. Open the email message and click on the link to create a password and access your account. Your username will be the email connected to your Gusto account. If, for some reason, you can’t find the welcome email in your inbox, you have the option to reset your password directly from the login page to regain access to your account. Simply click on the “Having trouble signing in” link and follow the prompts. They will send your login information via email to the address they have on file for your Gusto account.
