Video can be used to efficiently organize training materials and effectively distribute them among employees. By creating a video website dedicated to hosting training materials, your staff’s timely completion of training videos will promote initial and continuous learning.

A video-powered media center that contains your comprehensive library of training materials will assist in the three “Os” of corporate learning:

  • Orientation
  • Onboarding
  • Ongoing training

These three phases of an employee’s professional journey ensure that each new hire and seasoned team member receives the same, consistent training - befitting their unique roles. As such, corporate culture can be preserved by sharing easily accessible videos.

Orientation

Introducing and acclimating new hires to the standards and expectations of your business can exhaust resources – especially if you have a high turnover rate. Fortunately, having a well-organized library of pre-recorded videos that convey your company’s mission, vision and values can be a streamlined way to digest important information.

Starting every employee on the same page with that same resources leaves nothing to the imagination and contributes to keeping corporate practices congruent. Instilling unwavering expectations in your team from the get-go might increase loyalty and decrease turnover.

After all, thick paper manuals and binders exhaust not only natural resources, they’re also exhausting to read (no matter how riveting your documents undoubtedly are).

Onboarding

Once new hires are oriented to your corporate culture and expectations, the next step is to equip them with primary materials to get them started on the right foot.

Relevant to most industries and positions therein, new employees are ordinarily presented with an overwhelming amount of HR information, including:

  • Workplace conduct
  • WHMIS
  • Standard practices
  • Workplace safety

Frankly, as much as these materials are informative, meaningful content is likely to be lost in text. So, your company can benefit from having new employees watch engaging videos to illustrate otherwise bland topics.

Ongoing training

Studies have shown that 65% of us are visual learners, which means that watching a training session might be more impactful than reading a manual.

To make sure your employees retain a constant influx of new or changing information, it’s important to present material in a digestible manner. With the help of video, your employees can appreciate accessing a secure media center to complete:

  • Certifications
  • Courses
  • Training modules

Additionally, having a video platform at your disposal helps your business leaders keep track of corporate updates and announcements via live stream “all staff” meetings and on-demand videos. This way, even if staff members miss part of or the entire meeting, they can still go back to see the recorded event. As a bonus, managers and employees can use a commenting feature to share their insights to promote higher connectivity and group learning.

With versatile features that meet the needs of your company, access permissions and restrictions are provided to protect confidential, proprietary and sensitive corporate information.

Building a customizable, branded training media center for your staff without the interference of distracting ads or competing content can ultimately promote employee morale and save valuable company resources.
