Employee directories streamline new hire onboarding and help you find the right team member when you need them.
How employee directories help teams stay unified
Does your directory live in an HR site that not everyone can see? Create a resource that integrates with your Notion workplace so everyone can identify team members at a glance, find contact information, and establish a clear reporting structure.

An employee directory is a hub that hosts every team member’s information, keeps team knowledge in one place, and helps new hires learn about their coworkers.
If your directory connects to an org chart, it can also help establish your reporting structure.
A directory usually lives in a connected workspace like Notion and lets team members search for colleagues using filters like name, department, and job title. If it suits your team, you can also include custom fields for fun facts or other such information.
It varies from company to company, but you’ll probably want to include some combination of these basics for each employee profile:
Employee's full name
Their department or team
Their job title
Their start date
Their contact info, including work email, work phone number, and desk location
