What is an employee spotlight?

An employee spotlight series is a regular feature that highlights and celebrates individual employees while offering a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to work for the company. These posts are typically shared through social media, company websites and internal newsletters.

How do you write an employee spotlight?

Writing an employee spotlight involves more than just interviewing a colleague and drafting up a quick post. If you want to create a scalable process, you need to create a structured process up front.
