Case Study at a Glance

The Challenge:

Build a bold, easy-to-navigate website to showcase our client’s competitive differentiators and maximize SEO.

The Solution:

A custom site offered the design flexibility, features and SEO benefits this client needed.

The Results:

The new site has a clean and modern look, offers a great user experience and has received over 11,000 visits in its first few months – with more than 40 percent of that traffic coming from organic search.

The Challenges:

Since 1979, The Resource has provided a revolutionary approach to leadership development, permanent recruitment and staffing throughout North Carolina. Over the course of 40 years, they’ve found jobs for over 100,000 people, while empowering their staff to gain and develop new skills.

Having recently updated their brand and messaging, they turned to our web development team to build a new site that would:

  • marry strong copy with bold design to accurately reflect their brand;
  • clearly explain the unique ways The Resource’s services help employers and job seekers;
  • highlight the benefits of their CORE Assessment and Hiring System, a major point of competitive differentiation for both employers and job seekers;
  • provide fast and intuitive access to all site features;
  • rank well in organic search; and
  • include an easy-to-maintain, mobile-optimized website.

The Solution

We recommended a custom website to achieve our client’s goals:

  • White space sets off vivid colors to create a clean, modern look; icons and design elements break up copy-heavy areas.
  • Large format drop-downs offer one-click access any point on the site.
  • Dedicated industry pages highlight each industry The Resource specializes in.
  • Location pages for each office include contact information and jobs specific to that region, while boosting SEO.
  • Strong calls to action throughout the site, including a newsletter signup, clearly direct readers and maximize conversion opportunities.
  • Responsive design ensures a seamless user experience across devices and platforms.
  • Our job board is fully integrated with The Resource’s TempWorks ATS.
