Kellett built the Career Web Portal to help the GNWT fill a void in recruitment — connecting with people who are interested in working for the GNWT, but aren’t yet ready to apply. The website integrates with an internal system and synchronizes job data every 15 minutes.
The site increases GNWT job exposure by providing jobs in an easily navigated (better visits), easily shared (email or social sharing) and easily parsed format (better search results from Google and job aggregators). Job alerts now automatically notify repeat visitors about new job opportunities that match their interests and talents.
Kellett built the DHR Departmental website to address the need for document management and accessibility for staff. With both unionized and non-unionized employees, DHR has hundreds of documents and forms that need to be available to staff members. The new website has several search tools, including one specific to searching the content of documents, as well as an advanced online reading tool for documents that make all of this information more readily available, and easier to consume for staff members.
The site was designed in conjunction with the Careers portal to ensure they have a cohesive look, but still maintaining slightly different appearances to account for one site being primarily for internal use, and another site being primarily for external use.
As part of the website development, Kellett also developed a large asset library with a professional photo shoot. Allison provided concepts and direction and worked with Dave Brosha to secure over 1,000 images for the department. These images are used throughout the websites to represent the diversity of employment opportunities in the North, and are also used for any other HR communications materials.
