Video has arrived in internal communications, with 71 percent of respondents saying they produce videos to communicate with employees, according to a survey conducted by Ragan Communications and Ignite Technologies, “Engaging Employees with Video.”
But the YouTube-style social revolution—sharing, ratings, subscription to individuals, and posting of employee-produced videos—has yet to reach most organizations. Few allow much more than starting and stopping a video at will.
Some in the industry were surprised by the Ragan and Ignite findings. Drew Keller, president of StoryGuide, says he would have thought far fewer organizations were producing video for employees. Many small and mid-size companies still consider it too expensive.
