Read Time2 Minute, 12 Second

WorkReels has launched the world’s first video storytelling platform built specifically for recruitment and employer branding teams. WorkReels enables talent acquisition professionals to easily make and share high-quality, affordable social media videos for recruiting for about 1/20 the price of video production.

WorkReels enables talent acquisition professionals to attract and engage with both passive and active job seekers by reaching them where they spend the most time–viewing videos on social media. WorkReels is a solution for how hiring takes place today, which is more like digital marketing–attracting candidates through interesting video content and engaging with them over social media.

How WorkReels works
Using WorkReels requires no special video filming experience. It uses smartphone cameras and as little as 20 minutes of employee’s time:

  • Recruiters select from a library of customizable templates called Storylines to film scenes for the video story they want to tell, including “meet the team” and “a day in the life” videos that help illustrate their employee experience.
  • Recording WorkReels videos is quick and easy with any smartphone and can be completed in as little as 20 minutes with participants filming separately or together, whenever it’s convenient for them.
  • WorkReels professional editors transform approved recordings into high-quality videos optimized for social media, a jobs page or any location frequented by a company’s likely job seekers.
  • The WorkReels branded player makes sharing and embedding videos easy across LinkedIn, Youtube, TikTok, Instagram and Facebook.

SmartRecruiters announced the launch of SmartOnboard, a native solution that delivers a seamless onboarding experience for new hires. The new solution allows HR teams to get new employees up and running through a simple, tailored, and engaging onboarding experience that can be managed at scale.

With SmartOnboard new hires can easily find and complete their onboarding tasks, be introduced to their team, and familiarize themselves with their employer’s brand and culture, all through a new hire portal. At the same time, automated onboarding activities free up onboarding teams from managing paperwork, allowing them to focus on getting new hires set up for success, all while easily controlling their data on one system.

Continental, a leading technology company offering safe, efficient, intelligent, and affordable solutions for vehicles, machines, traffic, and transportation, is a customer of SmartRecruiters. The company develops pioneering technologies and services for sustainable and connected mobility of people and their goods and has a global workforce of more than 190,000 people in nearly 60 countries and markets. “We’re really excited about the value SmartOnboard will bring for an automated, lean, and transparent pre and onboarding process within Continental,” said Claudia Birle, Head of Global Talent Acquisition and Onboarding Solutions.
