Labor Finders Website Redesign & Umbraco Implementation
Labor Finders is an honest and dependable staffing company that puts 20,000 Americans to work every day. Founded in 1975, Labor Finders matches skilled workers in a wide range of industries with employers in their nationwide network of almost 200 locally-owned and operated offices.
Labor Finders set out to replace their current Umbraco website with a new site that focused on simplifying their mission to match the best worker for each position available. After interviewing a dozen website development firms, Labor Finders chose Marathon Consulting, an Umbraco Gold Partner, with a track record of success in implementing large, complex Umbraco websites
Marathon’s UX expert focused on designing an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface for their customers, which include both job seekers and employers looking for temporary staff. The website is integrated with Labor Finder’s internal systems so that all job postings are updated in real time, and new jobs show up on the website instantly. Speed and performance were especially important, especially on responsive views, as a large portion of job seekers access the Labor Finders website from mobile devices on cellular networks.
