HRS Website New and Improved

The CITS Web group and the technical staff of the HRS Department spent the past few months working together to update and improve the Human Resource Services website.  The new site was launched on March 11, 2011.  Using feedback that was gathered during the recent UMB campus-wide redesign effort, the site was revamped with a focus on providing visitors with quick access to information and services ---whether the visitor is a job applicant, a new faculty or staff member, existing faculty or staff, or a department administrator.  

The redesigned HRS site boasts improvements in navigation, design and layout.  Utilizing the current UMB design template while still employing its own unique sub-navigation and graphics, the content has been arranged to meet the information needs of target audiences.  In addition to improving its design and usability, the site was also moved into the University’s Content Management System (CMS) (an online system used by web developers across the campus), in order to utilize the CMS’s powerful authoring and administrative features and increase integration with other CMS-linked sites.
