HR.BLR.com v. 3.0 was launched in beta in November. The plan is to switch over to the new site in February. Here is what they have to say about the process and how they can use your help:

    We're looking for a few (thousand) good 'beta' testers— HR.BLR.com v. 3.0

    After many months of work, we are close to launching a new HR.BLR.com. We have conducted exhaustive research and asked you and your colleagues what new features you want, or what existing features you want changed. We interviewed dozens of managers to find out how they use the site and how we can help them do a better job, faster.

    Although we are getting close to launch, there is still time to make changes. That's why we've launched this beta site - we are hoping to get your feedback. So, please take a few minutes to try the new site and be sure to let us know what you think.

    How can you give us your input?
    First: Visit ,HR.BLR.com v.3.0
    Then: Take a quick survey or send us a message

    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,
