Human resources video production

 

There is no element of the HR function that cannot be advanced, improved or optimised by video.

Our tips for human resources video production

The best company culture videos include interviews with current employees. We always recommend a quality production with a professional shoot that leaves your team (your most important ambassadors and advocates) feeling important and empowered.

To get your team genuinely excited about the project (and to give them the opportunity to feed back), we suggest your human resources video is launched internally before a wider release. Smart distribution is essential to the success of any video project.

Video is an incredibly powerful medium because it allows you to create an emotional connection with the viewer.  Identify your primary audience (current employees, leadership team, candidates) and work on building that relationship.

Regardless of the audience, consider the story when developing your video’s narrative. What is the untold story that’s important to your business or this project? Is it something that can’t easily be gleaned from your website?

Every member of your team is an expert on what it’s really like to work for your company. Get colleagues to help brainstorm ideas around what the video will actually be about, what to include and what style to take.

You can hack so many parts of the HR process with video. Consider whether personalised or interactive content can save you time, streamline your HR processes, or simply leave a lasting impression on the viewer.

Video has become a strategic tool precisely because measuring every element of its impact is now possible: which parts are the most engaging? At what point are people losing interest? And have people watched to the end?

Choose a human resources video production company that understands the unique challenges the HR department faces. They should feel like an extension of your team and you should fully trust that they will be professional in dealing with colleagues and other stakeholders.

“Definition helped our organisation produce a very specific teacher training resource, which consisted of four hour long films and 125 short films clips cut from these four films. Definition also helped us with hosting the resource on our website. They were involved in every phase of producing this resource from pre-production all the way through to a lengthy post-production.

“Throughout the entire project, Definition were very present and could always be easily reached – no query/request from us was too big or too small. The crew on filming days were excellent, professional and friendly. Any difficult elements of the project that came up were discussed and dealt with in a timely manner.

“Each member of the Definition team was approachable and very easy to work with. We felt really looked after by Definition throughout the whole project and we are extremely happy with the finished product.”

“The finished product was delivered to a high standard and captured the intended messages perfectly. Definition were sensitive to the needs of those participating in the video and delivered a video that is suitable for a range of audiences. We hope to work with them again in the future.”
