4 Compelling Examples of Employer Brand Videos (Get Inspired & Easily Create Your Own)

See four great examples of employer brand videos and find out how you can easily record your own using our platform.

Employer branding videos are an increasingly popular way of promoting your company culture and showing potential candidates that your company is a great place to work. These recruitment videos can be shared on careers pages, or used in emails sent directly to prospective employees. They provide social proof that your company has a quality work environment and are a way of attracting top talent and increasing recruitment conversion rates for your business.

Beyond the recruitment process, the best employer brand videos are also a way of increasing employee retention by showing current team members the work your organization is doing to ensure their work environment remains positive, productive, and collaborative.

The most effective employer brand videos typically fall into one of two categories:

  1. Videos showcasing your company culture: These are essentially reviews of your company’s values that help your organization stand out from the recruiting competition. They also improve employee retention by reminding teams of the positives of working with your organization and the work you do to keep current employees engaged and happy in their work.
  2. Videos focused on specific employee experiences: Employee testimonial videos that let job seekers hear personal stories directly from your current employees about what it’s like to work in your organization.

Traditionally, however, most employer branding videos are expensive to produce and require you to hire a professional film crew and video editors to make them look compelling and well-styled. For one-off company culture videos, the investment may be worthwhile, but making individual employee videos for each role you want to recruit for may be prohibitive if you take this approach.

Vocal Video’s video recording platform was specifically designed to give you a faster and easier way of recording high-quality employer brand videos from specific roles and departments without having to hire expensive video crews. These videos are recorded asynchronously on your team members’ own devices and are automatically edited to a professional standard.

In this article, we’ll show you:

How to Record Your Own Employer Branding Videos with Vocal Video

Vocal Video lets you put together employer branding videos like the ones in our list very quickly and easily. You don’t need to hire a film crew or professional video editors and the whole process takes you and your employees just a few minutes to complete.

Here’s how you can do it for yourself:

You start creating each video on our platform by building a “Video Collector”.

Here’s a brief explanation of how that’s done:

  • Give your video a title.
  • Add an incentive for employees to record video (optional).
  • Design 3 or more questions to ask employees to get the best responses. (You can opt to adapt or use suggested questions included in our Employee Testimonial Templates.)
  • Add your logo, colors, and branding for your employer branding video.
  • Send out an automatically generated link to your company’s employees.
  • When they click on the link, they are taken to your Vocal Video landing page where they follow each prompt they are given to record answers to your questions.
  • After submitting each answer, they can rewatch their response (and re-record, if they want).
  • After answering all the questions, respondents click “submit” and their part of the process is over. (In all, it should take around 5 minutes.)

Each Video is Automatically Edited by Vocal Video (With the Option to Manually Edit Using Our Built-In Tools)

Each of the videos you receive is pre-edited to include the following design elements:

  • Your employer branding (logo and colors)
  • Text overlays (interviewee names and titles, intro and outro texts)
  • Slides including the questions you asked
  • Background music
  • Automated subtitles
  • An automatically-generated transcript of the whole video

Vocal Video also gives you the option to make your own edits to each video.

Our built-in video editing tools are designed for anyone to use, even if they have no previous video editing experience. This means you don’t have to download your videos onto complex third-party video editing software to make the changes you want to make, although you do have that option if you prefer it.

Here’s a list of the changes you can make using our suite of video editing tools:

  • Re-order responses to questions.
  • Trim videos.
  • Change the background music (we offer a library of royalty-free tunes).
  • Modulate the volume of the background music.
  • Edit captions and transcripts, as necessary.
  • Put together a highlight reel featuring several videos or clips.

Share & Embed Employer Brand Videos Using Vocal Video

Vocal Video provides unique automatically-generated embed codes and share links for every video that’s recorded. You can use these codes and links to post your employer branding videos across your social media channels, on your website, or send them via email or messaging services. (Alternatively, you can download the videos and upload them to social channels so that they automatically play in the newsfeed.)

Share links take viewers to your fully-branded Vocal Video landing page where the videos are hosted and prospective candidates can watch the videos completely ad-free.
