Onboarding and inducting new employees into the business
The induction process in any business is a major part of employee or contractor onboarding. A strong induction will make sure that a new recruit understands all aspects of their role.
There are a number of challenges that come with inductions. If you’ve ever run induction sessions, you would know that it can be hard to make sure your message stays the same each time. You’ll also know the time costs involved with inducting staff and contractors that may only be working with you for a short time.
The bigger your business, the more varied this message. And the larger these time costs can become.
Inductions may be getting taught by members of the business that are not usually involved with the image of the brand. This may affect the impression new hires have of the company.
What is an Induction Video Production?
An Induction Video Production is a video that delivers onboarding information to new employees. The video series should orientate the inductee to the business. This includes giving them an overview of the company’s mission and values. The videos should also give them the knowledge they need to do their jobs safely and successfully.
An good Induction Video Program can save your business time, money and headaches. Though video, onboarding information is presented in an engaging, effective and consistent way.
Induction videos are an asset for your business. They are a tool that can be used to help you scale well. Videos can be referred to by contractors and staff as needed to refresh knowledge. The accessibility of video content reduces chances for errors.
What are the elements of an effective Induction Video Production?
1) Keep it ENGAGING
An good Induction Video Production balances engagement with amount of information shared. It should clearly reflect and communicate the company’s brand, mission and values.
There is no point having an induction video that is so dry that people quickly tune out. Or that is so long that they feel overwhelmed.
2) Keep it RELEVANT
The information should be relevant to the viewer and their role within the company. This may mean that you may have different versions of an induction video for different job roles. Eg. A short term contractor should and would have a different induction program than a new long term employee who works in the office.
3) Keep it ON BRAND
An induction video can be one of the first experiences a person may have of your workplace. It is important that these videos reflect your culture and how you wish your brand to be perceived. A boring or poorly presented induction, whether by a person or a video, can leave a long lasting negative impression.
4) Provide an opportunity to APPLY THEIR KNOWLEDGE
A good induction video program should give an inductee the ability to recall key information. Using multiple choice quizzes at the end of each section of the induction program is a fun way to challenge the inductee. Quizzes allow staff to apply the knowledge that have just learnt and reinforce their understanding.
