Corporate Wallpaper Group Policy: Pros and Cons

Caroline Duncan - Aug 31, 2022 3:45:00 PM

The background on your employees’ computer desktops is valuable real estate for communicating with them. The space can be used to display all sorts of messaging, from corporate values to reminders about security or news and information about your organization’s latest projects, products and initiatives.

It’s a great way to passively reinforce messages that you are delivering to employees via other channels. Whenever they look at their computer desktops, they’ll see the information you want them to see. This method isn’t as obtrusive as other methods of communication.

Having corporate wallpaper also ensures that your employees aren’t setting their own and using images that are inappropriate.

In many companies, deploying uniform corporate wallpaper tends to be done via the IT department using the Group Policy feature that is built into Windows. Group Policy is a tool that enables centralized management and configuration of a range of Windows features on user computers, such as applications and user settings.
