As video becomes more integral to how businesses communicate, how teachers teach, and how we all share ideas and information, many organizations are finding that now is the right time to review how they’ve managed video content in the past and how they plan to do so in the future. That’s because video is unlike any other content:   Different video recorders often produce different types of video files, many of which cannot be played back on other devices Video files are much larger than text documents and quickly exceed maximum file size restrictions on common LMS and CMS solutions And video files are traditionally impossible to search, limiting the value of any recording to anyone looking for specific content But even in the face of these challenges, the popularity of video is exploding. Academic institutions are individually recording 80,000 hours of video every year. 76% of executives already watch a business video at least weekly, and Gartner Research predicts in the next few years, every employee in every company will interact with video at work three times every day. The growing prevalence of video has prompted Forrester Research to recommend organizations "Plan for video content, not just videoconferencing." Doing so offers a variety of rewards, from reducing the cost of meetings and events, and improving training and executive communications, to enhancing remote employee engagement and encouraging internal social learning. Delivering those returns starts with finding the right video platform. For many organizations, however, this is a no small task. The video platform market is young by enterprise IT standards, meaning feature-for-feature comparisons can be difficult to research. And details crucial to successful implementation are all too often obfuscated by video technology standards and industry jargon. Finding your next video platform doesn’t have to be complicated. All you need are the right questions in your next Request For Proposal (RFP). A sharp video platform RFP will make it easy to sort out the contenders and spot the options that can best meet your video needs, both now and for the future. So what are the right questions to ask in a video platform RFP? Here are our top ten recommended (jargon-free!) inquiries to include.
Leaders read the headlines. They know about the survey data. The linkages between career development and productivity gains, expense reduction, quality improvements, innovation, and bottom-line results are obvious. And yet most organizations are still poor at growing talent. It's time to elevate the career conversation to its rightful ranks - give it the respect and title it deserves. Talking with people about their careers is a competency - perhaps the most powerful and under-utilized one at the leader's disposal.

Many companies approach orientation like it's a formality. It has to be done, but no one wants to waste too much time on it. So, new employees are ushered in, given a quick tour of the office and a rundown of the benefits offered, and then they're expected to get right to work. It seems leaders assume that more detailed information on things like the company's processes and customers will simply be absorbed by new hires as they go along.
