Worldbank.org just got a pretty significant makeover. The design is more modern – with less clutter and better use of visuals (images, video, graphics). The navigation is more streamlined and, we hope, more intuitive for you. We know thousands of you rely on our website for research, data and knowledge to help you solve some of the world’s most challenging problems in your own line of work. You use it to connect with experts and learn about projects around the world. You use it to find a job. You use it to hold us accountable.
We pride ourselves on being an open and transparent organization, and finding what you are looking for on our website is paramount to that.
Initial testing of the new design shows great improvement in ‘way finding.’ Where visitors were previously able to find what they were looking for only 30% of the time, in this new design the success rate jumps to 80%.
As with anything new, it might take some time to get used to all the changes. It’s important that we hear from you about what’s not working. It’s also nice to hear what is.
Please continue to share your feedback by leaving a comment on this blog, or clicking through to our very short survey. We look forward to hearing from you.
