Key Chapters

  1. Your New Hires Start Next Week. Are You Ready?

    For many organizations, onboarding presents a serious challenge: how to provide time-sensitive training, tailored to specific roles, and delivered to a small audience that may be remotely located across the country or around the world?

  2. Solving Onboarding Challenges with On-Demand Video

    A thoughtful, comprehensive onboarding program must be part of your organization’s new hire plan. Yet for most organizations, delivering that detailed level of live training in a timely and personalized fashion for each and every new hire simply isn’t feasible. That’s where video offers real opportunity for your training team to go above and beyond.

  3. 4 Ways Video Enhances The Onboarding Process

    Video helps employees retain knowledge, helps companies reduce training costs, helps Learning and Development teams ensure training consistency, and helps everyone feel more connected from day one.

  4. Welcome Aboard: 15 Ideas for Employee Onboarding Videos

    Today, there’s almost no end to the types of onboarding videos organizations create. As you build your onboarding video training library, you’ll no doubt discover which concepts work best for your offices – and likely invent a new concept or two of your own as well.

  5. 5 Critical Capabilities Your Onboarding Video Platform Needs

    Video content is a proven way to help new employees learn just about anything – from simple HR processes to complex technical architectures. Where so many video onboarding efforts fall short is not in the content, however – it’s in the video technology itself.

  6. Planning The Program: Develop An Onboarding Program That Works

    In recent years the very notion of onboarding has evolved a great deal. Gone are the days when “onboarding” referred only the 2-hour meeting with HR. Modern onboarding programs tailor themselves to the way studies show people learn best - introducing new materials in bite-sized chunks over time and repeating key concepts to ensure new hires learn what they need in full and retain the information.

More compelling than a handbook and more cost-effective than on-location events and seminars, video is one of the best employee onboarding investments a company can make. With the right video platform and onboarding program in place, employees learn more, feel more connected and remain loyal longer — all at significant cost savings to the company.

A lot of time and money is spent by companies on optimizing the onboarding process for new hires. Unfortunately, this often happens to no avail. It's time for a change.
