This is nothing different from a document file, but you can work on it to publish on web directly as a web form template. This one is the latest feature of word. You have several integrated programs to improvise your templates in terms of visual appearance. You also have the option to work with the add_ons in MS word. If you work wisely, you can bring out a professional template all by yourself.
A template for an employee form could also contain a portion asking for the employee's office extension number. This would probably be part of the form especially in big companies where an employee may be reached by another in a different branch office through phone.
