Since our re-launch on March 7th we’ve been outreaching to individuals and organizations to get their feedback on our improvements. We’ve completed our first survey and are thrilled with the feedback.
Over 90% of you said you’d recommend us to others. Thanks for all the great amazing ideas on how to improve the site; to make it more friendly and easy to use. I’d like to thank everyone who took the survey—and if you didn’t get a chance we’d still love to hear from you.
Yesterday we traveled with our partners Volunteer Canada and Manulife to review the results of our survey at the Guelph Wellington Volunteer Centre where we met with a committed group of people who volunteered their time to review the site and to brainstorm our ideas for Getinvolved.ca 2.0.
The session was very positive with great ideas on how improve our GetMatched tool and looked at ways to make the site as user friendly for organizations, while promote better feedback. Then we explored how we can collaborate with volunteer centres across Canada. We’re piloting our work with Cathy Taylor and Jane Henning and their teams to find and hope to make the work of posting volunteer opportunities easier for everyone.
