New look for Human Resources website

The Human Resources website has a new look and improved functionality to better serve employees seeking information they need to do their jobs and manage their benefits.

“This is a great first step in making information about working at Vanderbilt more accessible for Vanderbilt employees and job seekers,” Traci Nordberg, associate vice chancellor and chief human resource officer, said. “This is just the beginning – as we make changes to our service delivery model we will incorporate new information and continue to improve communications with and to HR.”

New features include improved top navigation, A-Z listings and easy sorting and searching of benefits,policies and forms information, quick links to the most requested HR resources from the HR homepage, and news from myVU.

The site search has been significantly improved, with keyword searches tuned to bring up the most relevant pages. The search will continue to improve as site administrators monitor how employees are using and searching the site and “tweak” the search engine accordingly.

Many of the design and functionality changes made were based on input from faculty and staff focus groups conducted in Spring 2010.

Next steps include refining the site’s content and finding opportunities to streamline processes using online tools.

“We will continue to develop and enhance this site to ensure it reflects the needs and priorities of Vanderbilt and its employees,” Nordberg said.

The site was designed and built by University Web Communications in close partnership with Human Resources staff using the university’s content management system, OmniUpdate.
