Employee onboarding and training with videos
Employee onboarding is orienting new workers with the information they need to know about the company they’re joining. The way information can be processed depends on how the company chooses to communicate it.
Overall, it guides newcomers into becoming successful employees and integrates them in the organisation’s culture and long-term developments. One effective strategy organisations tend to use is onboarding videos, which can effectively communicate all necessary information to newcomers.
Don’t forget that videos create a more effective onboarding process, which is important for long-term employee retention and loyalty. Statistics show that only 12% of employees claim that their organisation did a good job during the onboarding process.
Employees with a better onboarding process will be more engaged and thus, have lower turnover rates, less absenteeism and increased employee satisfaction.
Onboarding and training videos are an excellent way to orientate newcomers, showing them the following:
- The type of work they’ll be doing
- The company’s culture
- Core values of the company
- Other important information
- Teaching them new skills they’ll need
- Strengthening their current skills
We know that videos might not be the same as face-to-face interactions and training, but many companies are leaning towards hybrid working schedules and making online interactions necessary.
4 types of employee onboarding videos you can use
Onboarding videos are a great way to allow leaders and managers to focus on more important tasks throughout the day. This can be done by building a collection of onboarding videos that are part of the onboarding process.
The first video that should be included in the onboarding process is a welcome video. Welcome videos should come from higher powers in the organisation, such as the CEO, the supervisor, or anyone responsible for this part.
Welcome videos are excellent for reducing anxiety on the first day at work. They are also great for answering newcomers’ questions during the first days.
Moreover, it’s another excellent way to show the company’s values and all of the developments your business is trying to make. Showing newcomers that you have a purpose is important and makes them feel prepared for what is to come.
