How Video Can Improve Your Recruiting and Communication Efforts

Session Time: 8:15 am — 9:15 am

Speaker: Brianna Home, Strategic Director, Hansen Belyea

Session Description: Video has made its way into recruitment marketing because it works. One study found that showing job seekers a welcome video from a hiring manager would make them 46% more likely to consider applying for a job and 30% more likely to respond to a recruiter. Unlike job descriptions or copy on a website, a video can show off your company culture in an authentic way, help attract the right talent, and allow your company to stand apart from the competition. In this presentation, we will discuss how to effectively incorporate video into your recruiting efforts. We will go into detail about how to get buy-in from leadership for investing in video, how to utilize this tool with any budget, what to know when creating your own video, considerations for hiring a video contractor, and resources for video creation. We will also discuss the best platforms for hosting your video. The presentation will include our top 5 tips for leveraging your video investment. Finally, we will discuss a case study from one of our clients, showing how they incorporated video into their recruiting efforts and experienced tangible results in the following months.
