Thanksgiving arrived a couple of days early for BLR
November 27, 2006
Everyone at BLR breathed a collective sigh or relief last week. Did you hear it? It happened about Monday at 9 a.m. eastern time. That's when we peeked at the results of our survey on the navigation of the new HR.BLR.com site, currently released in beta.
We've been working on this redesigned site for months - struggling with the details of making it as easy as possible to navigate and use. We thought we had some good ideas about how to reorganize the site and position the content, but we weren't sure because most of the ideas are untested, even revolutionary. Last week, many of you told us we are on the right track - and for that we are thankful!
But aside from being grateful many of you liked it, we are astounded at just how positive your reactions were. More than 90 percent of you reacted positively on every aspect of the navigation! " I find it user-friendly and very informative," wrote one subscriber. "Your efforts have produced a wonderful, easy- to-use research site. You have simplified the search for articles, job descriptions, laws, etc.," wrote another. Wow!
Although most subscribers liked everything they saw, the favorite new feature was the side-by-side display of national and state topic analysis. "This is the BEST feature for me," wrote one subscriber. "It makes it so much easier to get the state perspective on issues, especially since the state's laws frequently supercede the national ones. Very nice feature," she continued. "We work in multi-states; this will be very beneficial to me!" wrote another.
We asked subscribers to tell us what they liked least about the new site to draw out opportunties for more improvement, but negative comments were minimal. "I really didn't find anything to dislike," wrote one subscriber. Many others wrote, "Nothing." That's not to say there weren't some criticisms. Several complained the site needed more color, and we are already thinking about that - but carefully, because several others called the site's appearance "clean," and "easy on the eyes."
If you were among those who looked at the site and took part in the quick survey, thank you! If you are among those who have not weighed in, please take a few minutes to check out the beta site and then tell us what you think about it. And as always, send me a message if you have any thoughts you want to share with us.
Until next week,
Target - your ideal candidates, by school, major, location & more.
Brand - your company as the place where they want to work.
Learn - about the candidates you want to hire & how to reach them.
