DWD Responds to Customer Preferences with Website Update

Agency makes home page, agency content site easier to navigate regardless of device

MADISON – The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) today announced a web update that makes the agency's content more accessible to customers who view the site from a variety of devices, from desktop computers to mobile devices. The view of content on the agency's home page and other web pages now automatically adjusts based on the device screen size to ease navigation and improve readability.

"As more and more customers access our agency's website from mobile phones and tablets, we can now provide a better viewing experience from any device," DWD Secretary Reggie Newson said. "This makes our content more accessible and is part of our agency's commitment to excellent customer service and government transparency."

The site update, which was accomplished through in-house resources, retains the overall look and organization as the agency's previous design. According to DWD's web team, more than 25 percent of the web traffic to the site is done via mobile device, underscoring the value of having a site that responds to the viewer's device screen size.

Similar updates to program-specific sites such as WisconsinFastForward.com and JobCenterofWisconsin.com are planned for future rollouts.
