In recent years, video has emerged as a cost-effective and robust medium for all levels of employee training and education. The development of short instructional videos gives companies a unique ability to provide consistency in their training and messaging content while keeping employees current with regard to company policies, procedures, and standards.
Video content is transforming employee training programs by offering a richer and more engaging experience for employees. More and more companies are realizing the benefits of video-based learning and how its effective use can provide a powerful competitive advantage.
The Benefits of Corporate Training Videos
If your company is considering the use of video to drive your corporate training programs, some of the benefits you can expect can include:
One of the most powerful benefits of video-based training v. classroom-based training is the dramatic cost reduction it offers in its delivery. In fact, studies show that as much as 80% of the cost of classroom-based training comes from the delivery component. When you implement in classroom training, most of your expenses go to instructor fees and travel expenses, rather than the development of actual training content.
Learners tend to enjoy videos more than other types of content delivery. One study (by Forrester Research) found that the likelihood of employees engaging in training content increased by 75% when the material is delivered in video format, as opposed to written documents and emails. Videos have proven to be much more likely to engage employees and keep their attention throughout your training program.
Several studies have shown that with classroom-based training, the average employee will have forgotten nearly 90% of what was taught within six months after the session. Video, on the other hand, has proven to be more memorable as learners tend to greater retention of visual and interactive content.
Video training offers easy scalability as your corporate learning needs evolve and your organization grows. With video training, you can easily add new content or develop new courses to help meet your organization’s learning needs and maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace.
The Benefits of Corporate Training Videos for eLearning
For many companies, eLearning (Electronic Learning) has become the cornerstone of employee training as it is an approach to training that allows learners to interact with training content. And video is one of the foundational tools as it enhances the learning experience by offering a visual experience and allowing users to explore and digest this interactive content at their own pace.
Video content is easily delivered through most any Learning Management System (LMS), and provides a thoroughly engaging way to hold your employees’ attention and ensure the greatest level of retention.
