I developed such an extension that allows synchronization of admin
accounts with preferences from one master website (typically your
company website) to any number of slave websites (your client websites).
The passwords are randomized at the other end (just to be sure there is
absolutely no risk of having it decrypted) and you have to log in using
an OpenID account.

Whenever a new employee comes in, create it an admin account on your
master website and after synchro from the slave sites (using a scheduler
task), he will be able to log in there as well. If one leave your
company, disable his account, this state will be synchronize as well (I
could easily delete the account on the other end).

Unfortunately, this extension is not yet publicly available on TER.
