Location, Location: Make Training Videos That Command Attention
NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To stay relevant and competitive, companies need to communicate with their own new employees effectively. One vehicle for doing so is the training video—but making these videos timely and memorable can be a big challenge. Such videos usually cover a company's policies in different areas; they may use actors to dramatize certain scenarios, illustrating what is expected of managers or rank-and-file staff—whether on the job, in the field or when interacting with customers, clients or vendors.
Common themes for training videos include diversity awareness, fire and emergency procedures, human resources and legal issues, interpersonal communication, employee motivation and sexual harassment. All these topics are crucial in training staff. The restaurant, hospitality, healthcare, government and education industries make special use of training videos.
For companies with modest budgets, there are several inexpensive templates of training videos online that are readily available to customize. Larger companies tend to have higher training budgets and can specifically tailor their videos to their individual needs.
Some employees may bemoan having to sit through these videos, so why not give them something exciting to see? Employing state-of-the-art production studios, staffed by professionals who know how to do the videos right, can be a game-changer.
For many companies and organizations, Manhattan Center—with its Hammerstein and Grand Ballrooms, and its own television and recording studios—offers the best possible venue for shooting and editing corporate videos. The facilities are easily accessible, located on West 34th Street, right in the heart of midtown Manhattan.
Since the early 20th century, Manhattan Center has been a cultural hub, initially hosting operas when it first opened as Oscar Hammerstein's Manhattan Opera House. Now, decades later, the Manhattan Center serves as the setting for concerts of every genre, forums with world-class speakers, award shows and corporate galas. Highly regarded as a destination for unforgettable events, production there is much livelier than the staid, white-walled office that serves as a backdrop in many corporate training videos. With the higher production values available at Manhattan Center, spare trainees the tedium of a watching a predictably bland video, and command their attention instead.
