DH and I had a conversation about this today. I just wonder how many people appear on their compay's website? Just your contact info, your bio, your pic, or what?

My bet is 99.9% of people do not.

Well, it wasn't really a company, but I was on the County's HHSA website, along with my phone number. Only thing is, someone forgot to tell me they were putting the info out there, and I was deluged with calls outside the realm of my job until I convinced IT to use a generic office number.

No, the company is way too large for individuals to show up. I don't even see the company president or board of directors. There are a number of generic friendly people pictures, but I suspect they are all models.

No. We have about 65,000 employees and only the C-level employees are on the website with photos, bios, etc.. Well, there are also some PR-type shots of employees doing volunteer work, awarding checks to non-profits, etc.. But that's only another 50ish people and they aren't individually identified.

Name or contact info, no. But, years ago I worked at a facility next door to the corporate office and a photo shoot for the training module was held in our building. Some of those were used on the public website as well, but I can't remember if I was actually in any of them. I was in several for the internal employee training module. I still have a disc with a few of them saved somewhere. The photos of me were great but since I'm wearing a blue button down shirt/black slacks/heels, they are very obviously a corporate photo op.

ETA: on a related note, I just remembered that in my brief stint as the opening shift manager at a new restaurant, I did a thing on the morning news. The owner was foreign with a very thick accent making him difficult to understand so he didn't want to be the one speaking on TV. None of the managers really wanted to do it, he ended up offering me a 50 cent raise if I would I bit, but the news channel spelled my last name wrong it showed at the bottom of the screen.

our company website is pretty chintzy... there's not much info on it outside of the company contact info, and there's NO photographs of anyone on it at all. So: No.

Companies I've worked for previously were sooo large that again, no employee photos were ever posted on the website aside from the CEO and board members.
