Website Design Method

Since partnering with Synergis, the team at Staffing Future has developed the website, creating 2 sub domains in addition to the core website. Following the same core site design structure and layout, Synergis maintain a consistent brand look and feel and optimized user experience. This structure ensures a consistent user journey across all divisions to better attract, engage and convert specific traffic. Synergis business divisions can now drive productivity and visibility as well as quality applications for each of their business areas, something that could not be achieved by the old website design. This new identity is cleaner and more flexible and fully featured FutureBuilder – the staffing website content management system allows Synergis to update the front end of their website in real time. Future development of the Synergis business divisions is guaranteed by optimizing the core site infrastructure for specific search terms, harvesting relevant, high quality traffic and ensuring a consistent digital footprint in their target audiences. The relevancy and bespoke content for each of their target audiences is proving to be productive and helping this exceptional staffing business succeed on line and beat their competition. The team are winning new mandates as well as servicing those roles better after winning new business.

Brooke Hathaway, Marketing Communications Manager comments “It is great working with the Staffing Future website design and management team. The team supports our business and anticipates our demands, with regular account management, detailed website performance reporting and advice. Their proactive website management means we are often unaware of issues that have already been fixed. Our new website is performing above expectations and we’re delighted with the candidate flow and fresh business leads that come in from our website now.” Hathaway continues “The Staffing Future team are responsive, sharing their expertise and industry knowledge and experience. We’re delighted they continue to push and iterate our website forward in line with the latest staffing and recruitment best practices.”

Jack Copeland, CEO of Staffing Future comments “As Synergis was such a fast growing organisation with two divisions in very different markets it was essential Staffing Future provided a platform for the separate internal and external users bases to engage with effectively.

To achieve this, we broke out each division into their own subdomain allowing business heads to have their own message, imagery, jobs, search engine optimized and personalized candidate experience. The vast majority of traffic lands directly into the IT staffing and Creative staffing home pages, landing pages and jobs, staying in an environment relevant and specific to them.
We built on this opportunity to convert relevant traffic better by using the main Synergis HR brand to summarize the vision, leadership and philanthropy of the wider organisation. This also provides a place for candidates searching for internal staffing vacancies and to funnel any legacy traffic to the correct subdomain.
We are delighted with the results and love the clean concept with imagery that has impact and resonates with their audience. Job landing pages, proactive indexing of it jobs and creative jobs on search engines and aggregators alongside the enhanced SEO implementation and strategy deployed for each subdomain has resulted in a spike of traffic, applications and new business leads for Synergis HR.

Drive your business forward with a new website design.
