Wordpress Page Development

I'm working on a site in Wordpress and am not that familiar with it.

I wanted to ask for instructions/opinions on how to setup pages.
If I have an employee page that has 15 employees, should all of the employees be placed in a post or do I give every employee there own page?

If I have a work page that has multiple projects on it, then a page or post for each specific job?

Agree with jason on the top part... a page for each employee.

For the "work page", if the projects get added fairly regularly and you want the new ones to display first, you can make it a category and add the projects as posts.  That will also let you tag the projects if you needed to group them in other ways beside the main 'work page'

What Pages Are:

Pages are for content that is less time-dependent than Posts.
Pages can be organized into pages and SubPages.
Pages can use different Page Templates which can include Template Files, Template Tags and other PHP code.

What Pages are Not:

Pages are not Posts, nor are they excerpted from larger works of fiction. They do not cycle through your blog's main page. (Note: You can include Posts in Pages by using the Inline Posts Plugin.)
Pages cannot be associated with Categories and cannot be assigned Tags. The organizational structure for Pages comes only from their hierarchical interrelationships, and not from Tags or Categories.
Pages are not files. They are stored in your database just like Posts are.
Although you can put Template Tags and PHP code into a Page Template, you cannot put these into the content of a Page and expect them to run. (Note: You can achieve this by using a PHP evaluating Plugin such as Exec-PHP.)


WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL for creating websites and blogs. Features include a plugin architecture, a template system and strong management, customization and search systems; through its dynamic presentation of content, webmasters have the flexibility to create websites easily.
