The final DWP Digital Podcast of 2021: Improving services with user research

At DWP Digital, we put our users’ needs at the heart of everything we do. With over 20 million people using our services, it’s important that all our customers’ voices are heard.

In this final episode of the DWP Digital podcast for 2021, we catch up with user researchers Sheena Gawler and Chris Moffit, as well as Jon Houghton, lead interaction designer and Malcolm Canvin, senior product manager, who discuss the importance of representing the customer at every stage of a service’s development.

You’ll hear about the different user research methodologies we use, the key principles we follow when carrying out user research, how we turn someone’s feedback into useful information, and how our user researchers can influence design decisions.
