How YuJa’s Video Platform Can Help Organizations Onboard 

In addition to helping create an easily scalable, cost-effective onboarding solution, the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform can help to support employee onboarding in several key ways, including:

  • Providing additional support with video-based learning: With YuJa, organizations can offer additional opportunities to learn various rules and policies with video-based learning. Videos created with the capture tools are an ideal way to teach employees about security policies, time off procedures, and how to clock in, and log in and out of systems. Chunking information into smaller, more digestible videos can help employees learn and retain information. 
  • Storing tutorials for common procedures with a video content management system (VCMS): Store, manage, distribute and stream media content in a secure environment with an easily scalable video content management system. Onboarding videos can be reused as long as the process stays the same, and when something changes, editing is simple.
  • Outlining shared tasks and answering frequently asked questions with lecture capture: Teach common or shared job tasks using lecture capture tools. Employees can easily refer to these over and over again as they master tasks, as well as search videos to find exactly what they’re looking for quickly.  
  • Enhancing Culture with videos of important events and activities: Show employees the company culture by sharing videos of events and activities to help new employees learn more about the company, get a better idea of who the employees are and how they interact.
  • Elevating collaboration with video: Features like video conferencing provide an effective communication and collaboration tool. Other tools to facilitate collaboration include whiteboards, access to file uploads, video chats and shared files, which allow employees to work on projects together. 

Effective employee onboarding not only communicates information about a company, but also helps new hires feel competent, comfortable and like part of the team.

1. Video Editing Capabilities to Create Engaging Onboarding Material

Findings indicate that enterprises with a standardized onboarding process experience 62% greater new hire productivity, along with 50% greater new hire retention. The existence of an established onboarding experience is vital to ensure retention – and a Corporate Video Platform can help organizations do so in a fashion that is cost-effective and efficient.

With a Corporate Video Platform, you can create video content to ensure that your new employees undergo an engaging onboarding experience:

  • Welcome Videos:

Regardless of what videos your team decides to record, a Corporate Video Platform can ensure that new hires are provided the necessary content to ensure a smooth transition to your team.

2. A Media Management System Promoting Knowledge Sharing

Within an individual organization, information can be held by a handful of individuals. This can result in significant lags or delays during the day if it is not efficiently disseminated. Without proper knowledge sharing tools, this can lead to wasted time and productivity, as well as employee frustration. A Corporate Video Platform can provide your staff with the tools they need to effectively share information.

A Corporate Media Management System accessible throughout your organization can facilitate knowledge sharing, as well as provide the tools needed to upload files, record presentations, share videos, and save video conferences. Information should be organized in logical ways, with powerful search tools that enable users to find what they need and when they need it. This can help empower your staff with the information that they need to do their jobs to the best of their ability.

3. Engagement with On-Demand Video Streaming

Whether you need to hold a team meeting or share company-wide financial results, on-demand video streaming accessible using hyperlinks are a great way to disseminate content across a large audience. In fact, according to Forrester Research, employees are 75% more likely to watch a video than read documents, emails, or web articles. A Corporate Video Platform keeps your employees up-to-date on the latest company news and announcements and with the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform, your organization has access to high-quality, secure video streaming across all device platforms.

YuJa’s optimized HD video pipeline and streaming also utilize bitrate technology to ensure the smoothest viewing experience. Further, in a remote working environment, allowing your staff to access meetings from anywhere can help organizations ultimately reduce travel and employee time. Whether you are looking to supplement online classes or facilitate employee onboarding, a Corporate Video Platform is an ideal tool suited for any industry.

4. In-Video Quizzing Capabilities for Interactive Assessments 

With a Corporate Video Platform, digital-based quizzes help ensure that employees are engaging with all of your training and work-related content. In-Video quizzing capabilities also facilitate knowledge transfer and are much more efficient compared to quizzes conducted on paper. Your corporate trainers can analyze quiz results within minutes and receive actionable data from learners that provide the opportunity to create differentiated instruction.

5. Search-Inside-Video Capabilities

Assuming you are an organization that shares hundreds of on-demand content yearly, housing content within a traditional file structure can become a cumbersome process that can lead employees searching through months’ of content for a single file. By housing your digital content within a Corporate Video Platform that provides text-based search, stored content can be searchable by employees based on its topic and name, notes, comments, or video within minutes. Your media content can also be published to Corporate Media Channels which are easily accessible by staff on any device.
