Recruiting Video Production in Wisconsin

Why do you need recruiting video production?

Think about how often you watch a YouTube product review for a purchase that costs less than $50. Why? Because you want to see how it works and what it’s like before making a decision. What do you think your candidates are doing when they see a job posting? They’re poking around, looking for clues on what it would be like to work there and if they could see themselves working there for years.
You need a powerful recruiting video not only to help control that message, but more importantly, to influence the candidate to consider applying, and ultimately, accepting your offer.
HR video production is hardly a new tactic, but the successful ones are far from the traditional recruitment videos of 20 years ago, when a stiff voiceover rattled off a laundry list of perks - competitive wages, 401(k) plan, educational assistance, vacation, etc. Those were usually paired with overly happy employees whom you knew were not that happy all the time.

Here’s what will get candidates to apply

Here’s how this top-notch recruiting video comes to life.

  • We find the story As your corporate video production partner, we first need to dig for the stories that resonate with your target audience. Most often, we ask to talk to your top-performing employees. The ones whom you could say, “If we had ten of them, we’d be unstoppable.” We ask them what they like about the company, what attracted them to the job and what kinds of story angles connect with them. Most often, that’s where we find the best storylines, and our journalism background helps pinpoint these emotional hooks.
  • We help articulate the storyTaking all of those nuggets unearthed during the story-finding stage, we then help with the messaging. While the final video draws from real stories from actual humans, we still have the ability to shape the story to fit with your business goal. We help you identify the best interviewees, supporting video elements and story flow in our pre-production process.
  • We bring it to life in video formWith the intended story planned out, we move to shoot days, in which we sit down with our interviewees and ask them questions that will generate those organic answers. We then capture video of them performing their work and interacting with others - all in a style that looks believable and not staged. We pull it all together in post-production, and you now have a recruiting video (or series of videos) that will help you attract top talent.

FAQ for Recruiting video production

An effective recruitment video creates a desire to work at your company. You want to start the conversation with candidates, through this recruiting video, and then “close the deal” through the interviewing and hiring process.

A great recruiting video is a living, breathing job description - yet, we don’t try to cram a bunch of facts and details into our recruitment videos. We simply tell your story. We tell the story of what sets you apart from other employers, piquing the interest of your ideal job candidates. This includes candidates who are actively job searching as well as people who aren’t necessarily in the job market but who might be a great fit.

We firmly believe that videos should be interesting and engaging. A 30-second video can be boring and a three-hour video can be fascinating. There is no set length that a recruiting video “should” be - it all depends on the content. We will bring our decades of experience to your project and produce a recruiting video that absorbs your audience and compels them to action.
Gillespie Productions has experience creating recruiting videos for a wide variety of industries. We can work within any industry, including manufacturing, engineering, healthcare, construction, agriculture, education, technology, food services, transportation, finance, commerce, hospitality, and non-profit.

The cost of your recruiting video depends on the complexity of the project. We always bill in relation to the amount of effort that goes into the project, which includes pre-production, shooting days, and post-production. The length of your final video is not necessarily a factor in its cost.

We will put together a thoughtful, fair quote that takes into consideration everything you’re trying to accomplish with your video and what it will take for our team to achieve your goal. At the end of the day, the video itself is not the business commodity. The result you are trying to achieve - new potential recruits who will fit in at your company - is what you are investing into.
