We recently unveiled a new design for the Upwork Blog. And now, Upwork’s Hiring Headquarters site is sporting a new look, too. The redesign doesn’t just make the site easier to navigate, it also modernizes our use of WordPress, the content management system (CMS) behind the site.
The Hiring Headquarters is your one-stop shop for the latest work trends, strategies, and insights shaping the world of work—from resources to help you scale your use of flexible talent to tips and templates that will make it easier for you to hire smarter.
“Good information architecture can do more than just help people find objects and information. It can empower people by making it easier for them to learn and make better decisions.”
— Donna Spencer, Author of A Practical Guide to Information Architecture
With all that valuable content, we wanted to redesign the site to be more intuitive, and the content more discoverable. The site’s new structure, navigation, and design are optimized for you, our readers, so you can easily find the resources we’re providing today and in the future.
From a technology point of view, our team was faced with a central consideration: We integrate our content strategies with our business, but how can we better integrate our content sites with our tech stack?
