Editor’s Note: FOT would like to thank everyone that registered for “5 Ways to Use Video to Raise Your HR and Recruiting Game” – you are now the few, the proud, the video elite. Our FOT Hosts, Tim Sackett and Kris Dunn, had a great time presenting and would like to give a special shout out to the fine folks at HireVue, for sponsoring the event. If you were unable to attend, no worries – we’ll be providing a link to the archive shortly. Stay tuned…
If you would like to receive a copy of the FOT toolkit, “Lights, Camera, Hired: How to Use Video to Land Your Next Hire”, or an email when the presentation/slides go public, please drop a line to Holland, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get you on the list.
Let’s face it – when we say “Video and HR”, your employees go numb in the extremities. They’re automatically taken back to the time when HR herded everyone into the room and plugged in the VHS tape as a “high-end feature” to Harassment Training. Everyone attended. Check. A video featuring a manager who looked like Pat Sajak in an 80’s suit asking his direct report out for drinks repeatedly. Check. Sign the acknowledgement form and don’t be like Pat. Check.
But you, the progressive HR and recruiting professional (that’s why you’re reading this), know that video is more than a lame feature of bad compliance training. You get that video transcends quirky YouTube videos that go viral or running Netflix/Hulu on an iPad. You get that mobile video is the trend that will change the way your department works in the coming years, but you’re just not sure where to start.
That’s why Fistful of Talent created their latest webinar – The Future of Talent: 5 Ways to Use Video to Raise Your HR and Recruiting Game. Join us for this webinar, and we’ll give you the 411 for how to think about video within your HR or recruiting practice and a road map to get started in the following areas:
- Employment Branding – If you believe video is on the rise, than your text-based descriptions of your company culture aren’t going to cut it anymore. We’ll give you examples of what companies like yours are doing to use video to build transparency around what a day in the life of your employees looks like.
- Recruiting – We’ll break down how today’s video technology transcends the old cliché “video conference” system used for remote video and actually creates a higher quality of interview, allowing you and your hiring managers to control the questions you want answered, across all early stage candidates.
- Role Play for Managers – Your managers need better skills related to how they manage people. We’ll show you what smart companies are doing to weave role-play scenarios into all their managerial training, and how they’re using video to conduct skill practice and provide feedback related to the skill that managers use on a daily basis.
- Training Shorts Delivered via Mobile – Video makes training less of an event and more of a product delivered “just in time”. We’ll discuss how innovative companies are breaking down training into bite size morsels delivered via mobile video.
- A “How To” Guide to Get Started with Video in Your HR/Recruiting Organization. We’ll bring in a video expert to talk about how companies are building light infrastructure to deliver on the potential of video in the above areas – without breaking the bank.
This webinar comes with the Fistful of Talent guarantee: 60% of the time, it works every time. Join the FOT crew as they break down the video scene and brainstorm about the best way to build video chops in your HR or recruiting practice.
