Why a Training Video?

GCV Productions has been filming and editing training videos for McDonald’s SA for six years.  McDonald’s SA believe in the power of a local training video for their staff because of the following…

After every training session the trainers ask the trainees what did they find most informative about the training session, the answer is always the same…the training video.  Staff are able to grasp a training video much better than a typed manual and it is proven visual images are remembered much longer than words.  Videos made locally can better reflect procedures and practices rather than that from other countries.  Audiences relate better to videos that include their own colleagues and equipment they handle everyday.

Video brings the outside world to the training room.  Imagine teaching staff about life on an island, it would be very expensive to actually ship your staff out to an island, the next best approach would be to show them a video about life on an island…cheaper and safer.

Training videos can be viewed anytime and anywhere.  One can watch a section of the video again and again until the information presented is understood.  Put a subject professional in front of a camera and you have them when you want them over and over again.

Training video production can definitely add more interest and enjoyment to a training session.  And if you have a video team present you can put the trainees on camera, this is always fun and allows the trainee more involvement in the training session.

CREATING TRAINING VIDEOS FOR NEW STAFF

For years our firm has been training our new staff by hand.  We really felt that doing things hands-on was the way to go, and while we were a small company it really made sense.  But as we grew we noticed that it was not the most efficient way to get things done, so we decided to look at ways that we could streamline our training system.

After consulting with a number of colleagues in our market, we determined that creating training videos was the most efficient way to train our staff.  Not only would we ensure that everyone had the exact same amount of training, but it would free up our company leaders to focus on their departments without interruption.

Corporate video production durbanWe sent out requests to a number of video creation agencies, and after entertaining many offers, we decided to work with GCV Video Productions.  GCV specialized in training video production durban and we leveraged their expertise to create our training programs.  They worked closely with our HR department and training managers to come up with a training program that would ensure that all of our new hires entered our workforce at the same skill levels.

The completed training videos delivered to us were professional quality and more than exceeded our expectations.  We will be implementing these training videos with our next batch of hires in early May and we are excited to see the results.  Working with GCV Video Productions was one of the smartest decisions that we have made this year.
