Employment ACTion is a program of the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT) which focuses on helping those who living with HIV/AIDS find careers which meet their individual needs. In accomplishing this goal, Employment ACTion assists job seekers through a number of initiatives including career planning, job searches, interview coaching and other employment related services. At the same time, the organization works directly with employers to find matches for their employment needs. In order to better service their job seekers, employers, partners and the community, Employment Action realized their dated website was in need of an overhaul.
Employment ACTion worked with their design partner, Hagon Design, and Sandbox Software to envision a new website which would meet the needs of their various stakeholders. The new site would focus on their two primary audiences, employers and job seekers and the website would serve up appropriate content for each of those audiences. The new website also needed to work on mobile devices, meet accessibility standards and provide Employment ACTion staff with an easy-to-use content management system. Together, Employment ACTion, Hagon Design and Sandbox Software successfully delivered an attractive, interactive, functional and extremely easy to navigate website experience in the new Employment ACTion website.
