Not only is video interviewing a great tool for finding the right hire, but it is also perfect for onboarding them as well. If your organization is looking to optimize its recruitment process, you can’t ignore the impact that your onboarding process can have. A tedious and outdated onboarding process will not only delay a new hire from contributing to your organization but may also impair their ability to learn effectively or take away from their excitement. Relying on paper forms and traditional onboarding practices is inefficient and can result in a significant amount of wasted resources. At VidCruiter, we understand that the value of video is not only limited to recruitment. Here are some of the main benefits of utilizing our onboarding software:
Interactive and Engaging
Filling out paper forms and having to do a bunch of reading can make the onboarding process long and boring for new hires. The addition of video into the onboarding process is a great way to share your organization’s culture and make the process more engaging. You can include welcome videos from executives and managers or share testimonials and insights from employees in similar roles. Asynchronous training gives new hires the opportunity to learn at their pace and will help them better retain the information. Providing your new hires with engaging and informative training is one of the best ways to improve your organization’s retention rates.
Reduced Training Costs
With traditional practices, existing staff members have to dedicate a significant amount of their time guiding new hires into their role. Having existing staff members commit hours of their time towards the onboarding of a new employee typically accounts for the majority of the onboarding costs. With VidCruiter, new hires can move through completely customized training modules without existing staff members needing to get directly involved. The amount of automation can be adjusted on a per position basis allowing your HR team to determine how hands-on they need to be. The system tracks the progress of each new hire and substantially reduces the amount of required administrative work. Your entire process can be digitized, making data collection and storage as efficient as possible. Modules are also easy to setup and can be quickly changed to meet the needs of any scenario.
Without a flexible solution, the coordination of training initiatives between multiple departments can become a logistical nightmare. The VidCruiter system eliminates the hurdles that exist with cross-department involvement. Email updates will make sure everyone is involved in the process and ensures they manage each of their responsibilities. Training templates can be shared across various departments making it easy to build a custom onboarding process for each new hire. The system allows employees to communicate and coordinate, making sure that each new hire is given everything they need.
The value of VidCruiter’s training system is not limited to new hires, but can also be expanded to include any stakeholder. It is easy to invite anyone in your organization to participate without requiring them to download any software or create a login/password. Learning requirements can be adjusted as needed and the system makes tracking everyone’s participation and progress simple. With VidCruiter, we can help you ensure that everyone within your organization stays on top of what is new and exciting.
