A lot of businesses find themselves faced with some serious issues when it comes to training. Hiring a single training manager or even a team of trainers isn't always cost effective, but there are ways to still provide great training without having to add extra personnel. There are even ways to get expert instruction without actually having to hire an expert. Smart business turn to training videos to assist in the process. Whether custom created for a company or standard industry videos, this type of footage can be a valuable and cost savings tool for almost any business.
The advantages to video training are many. They include:
* Ability to tailor training. If there's one thing about training that holds true, it's the fact that there's never a one-size-fits-all program. No two companies, or two employees for that matter, are alike. This means different training will be needed. One company might require standard customer service training programs to help their employees succeed, while another could be in need of a safety video. By providing a whole host of options, training programs can be tailored to fit many different company needs.
* Flexibility. Few companies, especially really small ones that depend on every person, can actually expect their employees to drop everything for long training sessions. Videos are ideal for helping handle scheduling problems and they can even be shipped out to different locations.
* Customization. Depending on a company's training budget, videos can be custom created to handle different training needs. If, for example, your company handles security, you can create training videos to explain corporate policies for handling different situations. It's even possible to have staff members in front of the camera to ensure your message is conveyed as you'd like it. Custom videos can literally cover any topic or topics deemed necessary by a company, and once made, they can be used time and again, and even updated as necessary.
* Ability to provide in house training. Since training videos can be tailored to meet needs and customized as well, there's no need to outsource a lot of basic training. This can save a lot of money in course costs, and what's more, the videos can be reused as new employees come onboard or refresher courses are needed.
Getting a video training program together is a fairly simple undertaking. A lot of companies offer basic, pre-made training videos for everyday business situations like sexual harassment training, first aid, driver's safety and so on. For those who need to create custom videos, there are companies available to help do that, or even staff members who might shine by undertaking the project.
Companies that handle video creation generally will assist in everything from the script writing to the casting - whatever it takes to get the job done. For those companies who want to do things in-house, that's more than possible with a good camera and editing equipment.
While video training won't necessary work for every situation, it's a great way to handle some of the more basic training programs. What's more, the method is cost effective and saves a lot of time in scheduling and dealing with the little details.
