Train Your Team With the Help of Casual Films Training Video Production

Why you need training videos, when to use them, and how Casual Films can help

Creating engaging training programs with high completion and retention rates is infinitely easier when you harness the power of video. 

Thankfully, the prospect of excellent employee training videos lies at your fingertips — even if all you’ve got is a great idea, and no idea how to make it happen (hint: we’ve got you covered). 

In this guide, we’ll share why it’s time to dispense with legacy training systems, what you need to know to get buy-in from stakeholders for professional training video production, and how Casual Films can help you kick off training programs that onboard, motivate, and develop your team.

5 Benefits Of Professional Training Video Production

Contracting with training video production companies may seem like overkill in an era where generic content is freely available online and smartphones make everybody feel like they’re a filmmaker. But when you’re tasked with onboarding, developing, or motivating your team - your most important asset - can you afford to risk average-quality content?

Need to know more? Here are some benefits that you’ll enjoy when you invest in professional training video production with an experienced service provider:

1. Reliable Access to High Quality Content

With professionals, you’re guaranteed that every training video you publish is of the highest quality, even when produced at volume. A training video production agency has the capacity to produce work at the pace you need, and help you standardize how information is shared and accessed throughout your organization.

2. Getting Buy-In From Stakeholders Is Easier

Working with a professional company will give your stakeholders peace of mind. Reputable agencies have a track record and can easily share relevant examples from their portfolio that will help you motivate your choices to decision-makers.

3. Unsurpassed Cost-efficiency

A video production agency can work with you to repurpose your training material almost indefinitely. From re-edits to creating shorter cuts for multiple distribution platforms, you’ll get the maximum mileage out of any video content investment. You could also film a live training session that you run once, and deliver many times to different teams of new starters.

4. Keep Up With the Competition

Professional quality, branded training videos clearly communicate your commitment to being digital-first, and investing in your team. This helps you drive engagement and retention in top-performing employees.

5. Boost Retention of New Skills

Studies show that people retain 95% of a video message, but only 10% of a written one. Whether you’re onboarding your staff to a new platform or process, or inculcating a new way of thinking, training videos can help you achieve it  reliably.

4. Targeted Content that Tracks Engagement

A great film achieves its objective effectively, creatively, and efficiently. We create training videos that are backed by a strategy that ensures they share ideas and concepts simply, and effectively. Tracked engagement metrics ensure you can set clear KPIs that help get buy-in from senior management.

Diversity and inclusion can be one of the toughest initiatives to spearhead. While equality should be the obvious default for teams and organizations, sensitive and nuanced D&I training is essential to guarantee everyone a safe space to work.
