    5 ways internal videos boost morale and productivity

    Most companies have a firm grasp on how video content can promote their brand, products, improve their SEO and connect with customers. But is there a way that organisations could leverage the power of video internally?

    Video content is gaining popularity within the corporate environment as more than one quarter of companies planned to launch internally-focused enterprise videos in 2013, up from 21 per cent in 2010, according to a report from Forrester Research. Additionally, three-quarters of respondents from ‘The State of Video in the Enterprise’ believe video will play an important role in business communications in the near future.

    Here are five ways to use video internally to improve productivity, communication and collaboration within your business:

    1. Training

    Almost 64 per cent of respondents to the enterprise survey are using video for training to improve knowledge and engagement with staff. Four-fifths of respondents also said that using videos improved the training process for new employees.

    2. Internal communications

    Want to add a little more colour to your internal comms? Using video to promote company initiatives, make corporate announcements and for other such internal interactions improves working relationships between executives and employees, according to four-fifths of respondents.

    3. Knowledge sharing

    A notable majority (95 per cent) of respondents said videos were the most valuable format for improving knowledge sharing within their company. Employees can share how-to tutorials and best practices effectively through video and sharing employee-generated content can also boost creativity, engagement and empower staff.

    4. Event coverage

    Live streaming of events can bring disperse teams working in different regions together, helping to foster an integrated company culture. An internal video news portal could help to keep everyone in the loop, for example.

    5. Social networking

    Video content should be used internally within existing online environments, such as blogs, wikis, corporate portals and content management systems. However, it could be advantageous to create a standalone video portal to house all of your corporate video content, according to 70 per cent of the enterprise survey respondents.
