Employee testimonial videos make a powerful addition to your recruitment marketing process by letting job seekers see and hear more about your organization and company culture directly from your current employees. This type of video content provides genuine social proof of the quality of your work environment, which attracts more potential employees to apply to your organization.
The problem? Employee video testimonials can be expensive, and a hassle to put together because recording video content most often involves hiring a videographer, setting up a professional video shoot, and investing a lot of time and money in post-production.
Vocal Video was specifically designed to cut through those complexities by giving you a new and dramatically different way of putting together employee testimonial videos that are both authentic and high-quality.
These videos can be easily created remotely, on your team members own devices, which makes it a lot more likely you’ll get responses to show to potential employees.

Blueshift, a cross-channel marketing company, uses videos of employee stories on the careers page of its website to give prospective employees an insight into the company culture.
This example is similar to an employee case study, focusing on AI Solutions Engineer, Bhavti Sharda.
It works well because the interviewee retells her experience of being nervous in her initial interview, but shows she was put at ease. She gives examples of how communicative and supportive her team is, which puts job seekers considering applying to Blueshift at ease, too.
The videos on the Blueshift careers page, apart from the logos and branding slides, are played back in black and white (an editing option within Vocal Video) for greater image consistency across the page.
