Communication is absolutely vital in the field of human resources management, so why leave it to chance? Research has concluded that upwards of 90 percent of communication is non-verbal in nature, which means that memos, emails, and phone calls can only get a fraction of your message across. That’s what makes video conferencing solutions like the ones offered by LifeSize so valuable: they replicate the experience of face-to-face communication without the hassle and expense of travel.
Here are just a few of the things your HR department can do with video conferencing:
Disseminate company-wide communication broadcasts: Memos are boring and emails get ignored, so when there’s important company news to share, share it with video.
Conduct distance-learning seminars: One easy way to train a large group of people (or those in disparate geographic locations) is through the use of video. Likewise, if an employee cannot attend a seminar for whatever reason, video allows them to view the session on-demand at their convenience.
Recruit globally: There’s no denying that our world and our workplace are more global than ever. Video conferencing can help you cast a wider net when looking for job applicants, bringing geographically-removed candidates into your office for face-to-face interviews without the expense of travel. Vanguard Truck Centers, a leading provider of commercial transportation solutions headquartered in Atlanta, has used its LifeSize solution to reach out to applicants across the country, widening their talent pool and beating the competition for the best candidates.
Host training exercises: Spare the expense of flying employees out to a central training location – get the same bang for less buck by conducting training exercises over your video conferencing solution!
Broadcast policy reviews: Video is a simple, cost-effective way to disseminate critical information like policy reviews.
Conduct virtual interviews: Thanks to their LifeSize video conferencing solution, State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota is able to save up to $30,000 annually by conducting job interviews virtually.
From interviewing potential job candidates to training new hires to providing workers with the support they need to be successful within your company, video conferencing from LifeSize makes your HR job easier.
