Business is changing, and it's changing fast. This statement is even more true when it comes to workplace culture and training. The business world has shifted in so many different ways in the past few years, with one of the new realities being remote work for many people.
Change can be a challenge for companies, especially when congratulating or recognizing an employee, a retirement to celebrate, or new hire to welcome. In addition, with limited face-to-face interaction with employees and coworkers, it can be hard to know how to conduct a new onboarding process or give much-needed recognition to an employee from a distance.
This is why VidDay Group Videos for business are a worthwhile tool for companies to have.
Group videos present a valuable solution to the challenges companies face with remote work. So let’s take a look at some practical, time-saving ways to manage celebratory events and bring a personal touch efficiently:
Onboarding New Employees
Give a warm welcome to new team members with video messages from current employees —introducing themselves and giving words of encouragement.
Employee onboarding videos are a great resource and time-saver.
Videos can include:
This type of orientation video enables you to virtually “walk” new employees through your organization, tell them what to expect in their first couple of weeks, and where to find policies and procedures.
This way of onboarding new employees is helpful whether you’re working back in the office, remotely, or in a hybrid environment. As the person in charge of onboarding, it allows you to remain flexible to new employees whether you want to onboard new employees remotely or in the office.
Making onboarding videos with VidDay is easy. You have the option to record several different clips and piece them together to make the video, or just record your video in one session. Whichever suits you best.
