Many clients call in wanting a training video that can be shown to new employees when they begin work or to existing staff as refresher training.
There are significant advantages of incorporating video into your staff training and inductions; such as a continuity of message, higher engagement, and the saving of both time and money.
But quite often companies need to weigh up whether they go down the track of producing their own training video or whether a generic off-the-shelf training video will suffice.
Each and every workplace will have specific requirements that need to be addressed with the induction of new employees and training of existing staff.
We have essentially 3 options that are available, each with their own advantage:
1. Off-the-shelf training videos
Choose from our large range of “off-the-shelf” training video titles. Either set up a DVD showing particular topics of interest, or you may wish to incorporate the video into an online training program. The video may also be part of a self-paced, interactive e-learning program. The video content may complement or support other training material that the trainees are required to learn. Whether it’s offline or online, this can be an extremely cost-effective way of training new and existing staff with audiovisual content. However, the generic nature of the off-the-shelf variety may not suit every training requirement.
2. Custom produced staff induction video.
Engage us to case manage your training or induction video project. This would typically involve script work to your precise requirements, on-site filming and complete in-house editing. Whether the video is produced for your employees, contractors or visitors, our experienced production team would work with you through each stage of the production process to ensure that your specific safety messages and other important information is communicated in the most effective way possible.
3. A combination of both.
Whilst the benefits of a tailor made training program where employees can see themselves at their workplace, going about their particular work, would be immeasurable, the price tag for this can sometimes be prohibitive.
Why re-invent the wheel, when Channel 1 have already produced highly acclaimed training packages on various workplace topics and can quickly and simply adapt them so that they look like your very own productions.
Several of our clients have incorporated our modular style safety training toolbox video series with a customised introduction and conclusion, filmed at their workplace with their script. In doing this, they have ended up with an expensive induction program that looks like their very own but at a fraction of the price.
