HR video-making FAQs
We’ve got answers to your burning questions about online HR video makers and how to create human resources videos that make an impact.
What is a human resources video?
A human resources video is a video that communicates HR messages to the organization and helps HR perform human resources functions. In many cases, human resources videos are complementary to paper documents, such as policy videos. But some HR videos, such as company culture videos, can stand on their own.
Should I use an HR video template?
Using an HR video template is a great way to get ideas for your HR videos and make the most impact with the least amount of resources. When you choose an HR video maker, make sure the platform has templates geared toward HR and people ops, as well as visuals that fit well for workplace communications.
What is the best HR video to make first?
When it comes to the best HR video to make first, there’s no single answer. But many HR pros start with an announcement video. It’s relatively easy to replace one of your regular announcements with a video. Once you do, you’ll have a template in place for future videos.
What are some examples of an HR video series?
Examples of an HR video series include:
- “Mission moments” series (highlight team members who go above and beyond)
- Leadership update series (connect employees to the bigger picture)
- Weekly micro-learnings (mini-trainings people can watch at any time)
- Monthly birthdays
- Monthly work anniversaries
- Quarterly awards or recognition
5 tips for making an impactful HR video
With the right HR video maker in your toolbox, the sky’s the limit for creating impactful messages that engage, align, and activate employees. As you make your first HR video, keep these best practices in mind.
Keep it short and sweet
Most HR videos should be under about two minutes long. A short video is easier to retain, because your audience is less likely to be hit with information overload.
If the information is more complex, consider breaking it down into a series of videos. Add all of your videos to a library so they are easy to access in one place.
The easiest way to keep your videos concise is to use templates. Biteable’s video templates are designed by pros who know how to communicate big messages in bite-sized videos.
Once you start using video, it’s best to use it consistently. That way people get accustomed to watching videos and referencing them for information.
It’s also important to be consistent from video to video. Use a consistent structure, style, and tone for each HR video you create. This makes your videos more impactful because people know what to expect and can focus on processing the message, not on the video style.
Stay on brand
Branding is valuable, even for internal HR videos. It contributes to a consistent tone and style, and more importantly, it shows employees that your HR messaging is being presented by a unified front.
Branding makes your messages from the CEO and your policy videos look like they come from the same place, and implicitly conveys that the CEO is on board with the message in your policy videos. The same goes for your other videos.
This might seem daunting, but it’s easy with Biteable’s brand builder. The tool fetches your company colors and logo from your website and automatically applies them to your entire video.
Share videos via a trackable link
Sometimes you might have to download a video and send the actual file. But whenever possible, using a trackable link is the simplest way to share your HR videos. It’s also the most compatible with all the communication channels you already use.
It’s easy to copy and paste a link into an email, instant message, social media post, or intranet blog post — anywhere a clickable link can be shared. Using a link generated by Biteable, you can also track how many people watch the video.
End with a call-to-action
Whether you’re posting a recruiting video or sending a policy update, there’s something you want the viewer to do with the information.
The best way to get people to take action is to ask them. It doesn’t have to be pushy or aggressive, just a few words that clarify what you expect people to do combined with a clickable link that directs them to the next step.
Biteable makes it easy to add a clickable call-to-action button to the end of your HR videos. Select the call-to-action feature, add a few words and a URL, and Biteable takes care of the rest.
