Great UX is what we live and breathe … so we also blog about it!

Deze insight kadert in een reeks artikels van Bloovi Studio over Ondernemen.

Ervaren UX designers lopen dun gezaaid, ook al groeit de vraag vanuit de markt. Daarom zitten heel wat bedrijven met de handen in het haar. Met als gevolg dat het gegeerde UX-talent links en rechts wordt weggekaapt. Toch zijn er ook bedrijven die niet bij de pakken blijven zitten. We gingen ons licht opsteken bij Human Interface Group in Mechelen, waar elke individuele werknemer jaarlijks coaching op maat en een persoonlijk opleidingsaanbod krijgt. Dit zorgt ervoor dat niet enkel ervaren profielen maar ook jonge starters met een uitgesproken interesse in user experience er meer dan welkom zijn. We spraken met Valerie L’heureux en Stephanie Decroos over hoe ze dat nu precies aanpakken. “UX is een domein dat voortdurend evolueert, onze mensen constant opleiden en bijscholen is daarom een absolute must!”

Because of the growing importance of user experience, people with UX skills are in high demand and it may take you some time to identify, convince and hire the right persons. And since a lot of people consider themselves ‘UX experts’, it can be a daunting and time-consuming challenge to separate the wheat from the chaff.
With 6 to-the-point questions, I'll help you decide which skills you need to build a successful UX team.

A lot of companies have Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Genetic Engineering somewhere on their roadmap right now. It seems the sensible thing to do if you don’t want to get left behind.

However, it’s not only companies that risk being left behind, it’s people too. While technology evolves at an exponential rate, we poor human beings evolve in a much slower, linear way.

That’s slightly disconcerting, both from a human and a business perspective. But it doesn't have to be.

We use Hotjar to gather quantitative user feedback on websites. Thanks to the heat maps, you gain insight into what your visitors are doing on your website, and using the built-in surveys, you can also find out why your visitors are doing what they’re doing.

We’re excited not only about what this tool can do, but also about how easy it is to get the hang of it. The technical term for this would be: excellent user onboarding. When you do it right, you can turn your users into real fans. Just like Hotjar!
