We saw in the previous article why video is a great onboarding tool. Now let’s see how to use it to welcome your new employees in the best conditions.
How do companies use video for onboarding?
I. To introduce the company’s culture
Directly giving a context and some basis about the culture of the company is an excellent way to engage new employees and to create a feeling of involvement quickly.
II. A welcoming message from the managers and the CEO
Especially if it’s not possible to meet face-to-face with supervisors during the employee’s first few days, a welcome message is a good way to establish a positive first contact.
III. The organisation processes
IV. Services and products demos
V. The acquisition of job specific knowledge
Experts and / or superiors related to the newcomer’s position can instill their knowledge easily with video. It allows to review the more technical aspects and to stop at the moments that require more concentration.
VI. The company’s added values
VII. Comparison with the competition
VIII. The internal training processes
Each company has its own training systems: eLearning programs, face-to-face training, other optional courses… How to access them, how to know if they are eligible or how to register… that may be of interest to new employees.
IX. Roleplay and coaching videos:
X. Conferences and events
Events and conferences serve several essential purposes. Not only does this allow your leaders to share important information to the entire team, it also gives to each employee the opportunity to express and share ideas and experiences.
There are many other possibilities. Video is a great tool that allows to welcome new employees in the team in an interactive way!
