If you’re considering investing in company-wide photos of your employees, you may be uncertain about the logistics involved. Where, when and how will the headshots be taken? Who will do all the scheduling and follow-up? How will the instructions be communicated to staff? Will the project cause a huge disruption to the everyday work flow?
Those logistics may seem easier once you understand that companies like Lifetouch can take all the photos at your office, take them off
Further, on site and in studio photo sessions both offer advantages. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect with the different scenarios.
If you work with Lifetouch for on-premise employee headshots, you can expect our specialists to help you coordinate the project so it’s streamlined and friction-free for your staff. Employees may pose during work hours or during scheduled breaks, and the company may choose to turn the process into a fun, team-building event. Perhaps best of all, the images are captured in one fell swoop to minimize the chances of leaving anyone out.
In general, here’s what will happen with our on site plan:
The process can be just as seamless if you decide it’s easier for your employees to schedule their own photo sessions at JCPenney studios. Among the advantages, your staff won’t be distracted at work by the photography process, the setting may feel more private and they’ll have more control over how, when and where they’ll get their headshots taken.
These are the usual steps:
A third alternative is to establish and promote certain times Lifetouch photographers will be in your office, but allow staff to select their own dates and times for off site sessions if they prefer. That compromise can be a win-win for all, since employees can then complete their photography “assignments” in whichever way they’re most comfortable.
The bottom line? Lifetouch will work with your company to come up with the photography plan and location that’s ideal for you and your staff. Our goal is to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible, and to deliver the stellar-quality digital images you’ve come to expect from the Lifetouch name.
