Analyst(s): Consult the Board Research Team


This summary contains input from twenty-two members regarding the solutions they leverage to manage their employees’ profiles. We begin this summary by examining the solutions that members are using to capture employees’ profile information and the integration between these solutions and other company systems. Next, we explore the analytics and reporting capabilities of members’ employee directory solutions. We then discuss how members organize maintenance of the employee directory. We close with a look at the data found in members’ employee directories and strategies that members adopt to encourage employees to complete their profiles.
