Lightroom Classic: Share facial recognition results with team

In Lightroom Classic there's an option to identify people in a picture using the facial recognition tool. What I would like to achieve is that I can share the results of this between team members. If someone identifies people in a picture (on a shared drive) there should not be a need for another team member to do the same.

Is there a way to work together as a team, sharing results and more importantly not loosing any data if someone leaves the team?

You'd need access to the same catalog, and the simplest way to do that is to put the catalog on an external drive and plug it into the computer you're using at the time.

Thank you, from what I understand from your comment the ‘Name tag’ is part of a catalog. Does that imply that when I create a new catalog, I will have to label people that are already labelled in another catalog?

As I have the pictures on a shared location in our company network, I assume I can place the catalog in the same location and work from there. Or does your solution include an import / export process?

We have to go through 20k pictures / 40GB so my main interest is a stable solution and preferably to be able to work simultaneously.
