Countless studies assert that candidates want employers to be transparent and show authenticity – and we agree! Clinch just published a great prescriptive how-to post for iPhone recruitment videos. Employee-generated videos like hiring managers discussing a new hot job or employees working together on a volunteer project are great examples of how to humanize your employer brand. But employers still need high production value videos in their recruitment marketing materials. “High production value” means attention is paid to the concept, location, script, lighting, audio, camera, graphics, animation and editing in post-production.

Why should talent acquisition invent in high production value recruitment videos?

Visual media is absolutely necessary to promote a company’s employment brand, and it’s far easier and more engaging to tell a story through a 1-2-minute video than text. The higher the quality of your production, the more memorable your story will be. Recruitment videos do “go viral” these days. Check out this police chief recruitment video from the Hillsboro Police Department.

To help you achieve this objective, here is a list of video vendors that specialize or have extensive experience producing recruitment videos. Note: We hope this list contributes to your video vendor research process, and it is not in any particular ranking or order.
