Efficient employee onboarding is an essential part of every organization’s learning and development activities. And video is the perfect tool to enhance your onboarding programs.
With Panopto, you can create a library of new hire training videos with tutorials and best practices for every role across the company. You can introduce your company culture through executive video presentations. And you can provide employees and their families with on-demand information about company benefits and enrollment procedures.
“Previously it could take someone three to four months to really get immersed in one of our products. Our process is more efficient now, and that’s where we see the greatest benefit. Using Panopto makes us more effective internally which, in turn, enables us to work more effectively with our customers.”CEO, Financial Technology Company
Most new hires spend their first days and weeks awash in details. Product demos, job responsibilities, benefits options, team introductions, executive welcomes, company policies, and more. It’s an overwhelming amount of information, and most new hires won’t remember much more than the basics.
On-demand video presentations can help. With video, your new hires can easily review the information covered in onboarding sessions whenever they need it. And with Panopto’s unique video search engine, they can find and fast forward to specific points and ideas covered within any video.
For businesses with multiple offices around the world, it’s important to ensure that company culture and policies are communicated in a consistent way.
Including video in your onboarding program ensures that this need is met. With video, your HR and employee development teams can ensure that every new hire hears the same welcome messages, learns essential skills and processes the same way, and starts off on the right foot, every time.
“Panopto helps speed up the product knowledge acquisition process immensely. Recently one of our developers was asked by a new hire how to perform a specific task. Using Panopto he demonstrated the process step-by-step in a very short recording. Now we have that information ready for anyone else to view, follow along, and learn from at any time.”Manager, Employee Development, Business Software Company
As employees begin to ramp up, their onboarding needs quickly become more personalized. Job-specific training and team-specific policies take greater precedence, enabling new hires to get productive and contribute within their organizations.
With video, you can develop an onboarding program customized to the needs of individual organizations and job roles. Personalized video playlists provide a learning path that new recruits can follow over their first few months, and microlearning videos make it easy for employees to consume information in bite-sized chunks.
Getting new employees ramped up costs up to 30 percent of their annual salary. Of course, there’s good reason for that investment, as effective onboarding programs help prevent early turnover for as many as 1 in 4 new hires.
With Panopto, you can build an onboarding program that scales cost-effectively. Record new hire training once and eliminate the need for managers, subject matter experts, and trainers to spend additional time repeating basic information. New hires can then watch those recordings right from their laptop or smartphone, reducing travel and logistics costs of on-site training.
