Maximizing Millennials:  By 2020 More than Half of the Workforce Will be Made up of those born in the ’80s and ’90s

Whether you refer to them as Gen Y, Millennials, or those born in the ’80s and ’90s, they’re the up-and-coming coworkers. They think differently than previous generations, and more importantly, they respond differently to work life and being managed. Here’s what you need to know.

Rebecca Gordon Group Launches Missouri Health Care For All Website

2013-09-12 12.59.06 pm

The Rebecca Gordon Group is proud to announce the launch of their latest project, the redesign of the Missouri Health Care for All website. MHCFA is a non-partisan, grassroots movement committed to securing access to affordable, high-quality health care for all Missourians.

The new site provides a home for MHCFA to inform, educate and organize citizens and advocates as Missouri prepares for the new Health Insurance Marketplace and decides whether to expand Medicaid. The site allows users to browse a news archive for the latest stories and articles about health care issues in Missouri.

The Rebecca Gordon Group developed the site using a Content Management System called WordPress. You might be familiar with WordPress as a blogging site. However, its powerful software can be used to design non-blog sites as well.  The best part of WordPress is that the vast majority of content can be easily updated by someone with zero knowledge of HTML coding.

It’s been a busy week at the Rebecca Gordon Group! We launched two new websites this week, one for Dr. Sheila Carnett and one for LaSienne Salon and Day Spa. The links will take you to those new websites. Both websites were created using free themes from WordPress.com, just with some custom-designed features like sidebar buttons and headers. Both themes were ones we haven’t used before, but they both allowed for enough flexibility to make a business website work.

For the LaSienne site, we used a theme called Hatch that is used mostly for photographers. As you can see from the site, we really wanted to use a lot of images on the front page rather than text, so the theme worked great for that. We also really liked the ability to add widgets at the bottom of each page, like the Facebook and Pinterest buttons. That allowed us to use the entire full-width of each page.

For Dr. Sheila Carnett’s site, we used the popular Twenty Twelve theme. We were able to provide the site with it’s own feel though by adding a header and custom sidebar buttons. Previously, Dr. Carnett didn’t have her own website, and we really just wanted to create her own space online. The content is simple and to the point, but it provides all the necessary information to visitors, without getting caught up in the bells and whistles. We also really wanted people to know how to find her office, as it’s somewhat tucked away, so we created the “Find Us” page with photos we took of the building, as well as an embedded Google Map.
