Every HR professional will relate to this!
A new hire’s first day of work, they come onboard with a cocktail of excitement and nervousness. A thousand questions ringing in their head “Will I like the job”? “How will be the people around?”
“Will I be able to perform”? Adding to the chaos, they meet loads of new people which boils down to remembering countless names. Joe, Heather, Alex, Jessica, David, Brandon, Eva….
And wondering who are these people, anyway? Which department do they belong to? They are left stranded for days with these questions, if your organization doesn’t have an employee intranet or worse at least an employee directory!!

New Employee Directory View
The new directory offers three different views as shown in the screenshot below:
- Detailed view
- Text Only view
- Photo only view
