Use a board as info in another board

Scenario: use a board to track employees’ names, emails, positions, extension, etc so that they can be used in dropdowns in other boards’ forms:
As a programmer we are taught to reuse code whenever possible. I tried to set up a list of employees in a board so I could mirror them to other boards to be used as a dropdown, but on the Forms it shows at the bottom that this capability does not exist. it’s all well and good that you can copy paste lists into the backend, but if there is a change to the employee roster I would have to go to every board where the list is being used to update it instead of just going to one board and changing it there. Are there any plans to fix this delinquency? is there a workaround I’m not aware of?
