Do I need to take the time to send out videos everyday? How does that work?
No! The process is completely automated. Once the video is approved, you put it in a playlist and it sends out in the order in which you place it. We want to keep admin time down to less than 15 minutes a week. You can spend more time if you really want to create videos and other training, but we make it possible for you to focus on other tasks that allow you to be more strategic as a safety director. The goal is to make you less operationally focused, and more purposeful and strategic.
What do I do if there are videos that aren't relevant to some employees?
We make it easy to assign playlists that are relevant to only those who need to see them. Playlists can be assigned to different groups and divisions based on job responsibilities. in fact, we help you create those playlists before you launch so that you don’t have to worry about ensuring relevancy of training later.
