Being On-Demand Makes Training More Effective

Posted by Daniel Roche on Mar 15, 2017 12:31:00 PM

Every employee needs some training. New employees need onboarding, everyone needs harassment-free workplace training, and management needs leadership and development training. Conventional wisdom has long held that the most cost-effective way to accomplish training is through on-de
mand video. 


A major reason that on-demand training video is so popular is that it cuts out the need for costly travel. That expense savings alone can drive the desire for this format of training. Airfare, gas, meals, and hotel costs significantly impact the return on investment for training (have you priced a carafe of coffee at a Chicago hotel?) If your organization is widespread or international, travel can make training cost-prohibitive. This is the most obvious reason why on-demand training has taken off in the last decade. However, there are even more compelling reasons why this format is so successful. It can be boiled down to one word: effectiveness.

Human Resources and Video: Connect and Engage with Employees

Posted by Joseph de Leon on Dec 6, 2016 1:52:10 PM


Video helps reinforce employees’ desire for corporate transparency and fosters a feeling among employees of being valued by management. An executive can share company news with expressions and body language that simply cannot be conveyed through text. This authentic communication builds trust among employees, bolstering their emotional connection to the company.

As the steward of your company’s culture and values, the Human Resources function plays a crucial role in engaging and uniting employees. Effective internal communication is vital for success. Layer on a multi-generational, geographically dispersed workforce, and the communication challenges only multiply.

With the swelling popularity of YouTube and video viewing among consumers, it’s not surprising that corporate video usage is rising. Video engages employees like no other medium.
