What is an orientation video?

An orientation video is an alternative to a traditional employee onboarding and orientation presentation, and it's used to introduce new employees to the company in an engaging and structured way.

While new employee onboarding videos vary from company to company, the goal remains the same - create videos to replace parts of the traditional onboarding process, and to introduce new hires to their new company, department, jobs, other employees, and so on.

How do I make a video orientation?

With Synthesia, making an employee orientation video only takes 5 steps:

  1. Create an account to start making onboarding videos in minutes
  2. Choose the onboarding video template or get started with a blank canvas
  3. Select an AI video presenter and a text-to-speech voice for the narration
  4. Type in your script
  5. Generate the video and share it with the new hires directly, or upload it to a management software

In your employee onboarding video, try to include the following information:

  • history and culture of the organization
  • key values and mission
  • department and/or team breakdown

How does employee orientation work?

New employee orientation is an essential part of ensuring the success of new hires in the company. The entire process can take anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks and may involve different steps.

Employers' goals with the new employee onboarding process are to effectively introduce the company culture and history, fill in the new hires on important job-related matters and make them blend right in with the team.

Administrative tasks such as signing documents are an essential part of onboarding for new employees, but it can (and should be) much more than that. Make the process more fun engaging by featuring orientation videos and other creative activities.

What should a new employee welcome video include?

An orientation video for new employees should give an overview of the company's mission and values, as well as provide some practical information about what to expect on the first day of work.

It's also a good idea to include a tour of the office, so that new employees can get a feel for their surroundings.

And finally, it's always nice to introduce the staff and say a few words about what makes each person unique.

By taking the time to create an employee onboarding video, you can help new employees feel comfortable and excited about starting their job at your company.
