  • Subject: DRS Email 14-010, Website update coming in August

A preview of the new DRS Employers’ site is now available, and you’re invited to tell us what you think.

You can preview the site look and feel now in a test environment. Please note that because this is a test environment, information may not be current. Please don’t bookmark any pages on this site. When the site refresh is launched in August, all previous bookmarks will continue to work.

The overall DRS website is being refreshed based on feedback from user testing by members and employers. This phase updates the look and feel of the site and simplifies site navigation. This is one step in an ongoing website update; future improvements will include improving the search function. We’ve heard that you need easy access to information and tools to do your work. We believe these changes will make it easier.

After the new site launches in August, the employer section will operate as its own distinct site, with clearer navigation to all the tools and information you currently use. If you’ve bookmarked pages, those bookmarks will still work. We’re implementing another change we’ve heard many requests for – the new design has improved printing capabilities. The underlying organization of the website is staying the same – we’re just eliminating a click or two so you can find information easier.

We’d like to hear what you think. Please reply to this notice or call ESS at 360-664-7200 (option 2) or 800-547-6657 (option 6, option 2) if you have any questions or comments. We will also continue to improve the usability of the DRS site through user testing.
