Staff Directory Plugin: Company Directory


Updated for WordPress 5 and Gutenburg! Company Directory now includes custom Gutenburg blocks and works seamlessly with the new Gutenburg editor.

Company Directory is the easiest way to add a Staff directory to your website. Staff and Faculty are presented in several easy to understand layouts, including a staff list or employee directory, allowing visitors to get to know your company and capabilities. Additional layouts are contained in the Pro version!

Company Directory supports searching staff members with a simple search form – a great feature if you have many employees in your directory! Adding a Staff Search widget to your sidebar allows visitors to quickly find the employee they are looking for.

Company Directory allows you to include many pieces of information for each Staff or Faculty member, including their:

  • Full Name
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Job Title
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Mailing Address
  • Web Address
  • Photo
  • and Bio!

Display Your Staff and Faculty in an Easy to View Format

Company Directory includes a useful Staff List view for displaying your Staff Members. Visitors will be able to click through from your Staff List views to read more about each employee in a customizable template.

Company Directory Pro includes additional attractive layouts such as the Staff Grid or customizable Staff Table layout, which gives user the option to control what fields are displayed. This is a great way to display a staff phone directory!

Templating System allows Complete Customization

Company Directory uses a customizable template system to allow full control over the look and feel of Staff Members. Does your business have a large staff or faculty? Company Directory includes Search functionality to facilitate users finding the person they are looking for, without having to navigate long tables and lists of staff. For Advanced Search functionality, check out Company Directory Pro!

Easy to Use Features Simplify Administration

Managing and displaying a large amount of Faculty or Staff on your website can be difficult – especially when using traditional methods such as editing HTML on a page. With Company Directory, users are given an easy-to-understand method of adding and managing Staff and Faculty on their website, using the WordPress interface we all know and love.

Using our simple staff shortcode system, website maintainers can insert a list of staff, an employee table, or grid of faculty members onto any WordPress Page! This allows visitors to view your Staff or Faculty, find who they are looking for, and contact them directly!

Our professional development team is continually improving and updating our plugin, so stay tuned for updates!

Simple plugin that does what we need, which is to list out a company’s staff directory with photos and contact details. We had to buy the pro version to get all the features we needed for client. Had a CSS issue which the developer helped resolve.
