I read on here recently that a navigation label is a promise to the user that what they are about to click on is appropriately represented next. I love this. However, I am struggling to correctly label these following list items.

What label name would make the most sense to the user in this scenario? Note: The context is an employee portal / intranet.

  • Please show what you already tried/thought. But If I understand right your question, maybe "employee benefits" or "your benefits" or "my benefits". You need to explain better where this is will displayed, what user will look for it and why they are looking for it and what is the sibling lables options. – BraDev Oct 2 '19 at 12:55
  • The users are employees of a company. They use this website daily to book holidays, download vouchers, find information etc. It will be displayed in the website navigation on an employee intranet/portal. I don't want to taint anyone's opinions with what it is currently called as I am looking for what immediately makes most sense upon looking at the list. – Calum Oct 2 '19 at 13:35
  • Ok, and on your employee restricted area, you will have just these items on the menu or you will have other options? – BraDev Oct 2 '19 at 13:39
  • There will be a "Company Info" menu item with various departments and business things and there will be a "News" item too. – Calum Oct 2 '19 at 14:03
  • Do you have some wireframe or template ready? Sorry about the questions but I'm trying to understand completely before suggesting something. – BraDev Oct 2 '19 at 14:08
