BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the VP of human resources of a food distribution company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Episode 11 Production?

The first time we worked with them, we were facing a challenge in our recruiting efforts. We needed help putting together a video that would attract the right candidates for the positions we have.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a very rough draft of a script and Episode 11 helped us get it completed. For this project, some of our subject matter experts partnered with Beth from Episode 11. She helped us get the script finalized. Then they came out to one of our work locations and shot a lot of video footage of our employees. They worked really well at the work site with our management folks. Episode 11 did all of the editing for the final product, a 6-minute video that we’re using for recruiting. They learned a lot about our company. In fact, they had so much great footage that Beth called us and said we could create a second video. We had some editing time left, so she created a second video for us based on what she learned about the company. We’re also using that second video for our internal recruiting. We have worked with them twice at other locations as well.

How did you come to work with Episode 11 Production?

We had not ever done this before and had no idea what we were doing. A couple of us reached out to contacts that we have in our professional networks. We actually got a referral from a company in another industry completely. We came up with 3 or 4 different names and we reached out to all of them. Episode 11 was in a good location for us. Based on their work samples, it looked like they would be a good fit for us.

How much have you invested with Episode 11 Production?

All 3 projects were under $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The projects have been completed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

The feedback from our human resources folks has been very positive; the video has been a great tool for them. They were using the video to get a better match while recruiting. It helped us better explain to candidates what they could expect in a particular job—for example, as a delivery driver for our company.

We have been able to reduce the turnover rate in the first 6 months. Fewer new hires come in and say that the job is not for them and not what they expected. We’ve tried to explain the job to them before, but seeing it in action is a lot different from hearing someone’s words. Our retention rate has improved thanks to the videos. While we’ve had other efforts previously, they definitely feel that the video has made a difference in helping a new employee know what to expect.

How did Episode 11 Production perform from a project management standpoint?

Episode 11 will keep you on time, so I’d have to give them 10 out of 10 for project management. They’re great to work with. Beth is the person that we deal with and she gives great advice. Her expertise was really helpful, particularly in the scriptwriting process.

What did you find most impressive about Episode 11 Production?

Episode 11 was very adaptable, given that the 3 projects that they handled had different purposes. It was really easy for them to get the information and understand what we were trying to accomplish. They adapted well to very different scenarios. Since they’re working with a lot of companies, they have to be able to do that. They were on all 3 projects right away.

Are there any areas Episode 11 Production could improve?

I don’t have a lot to compare it to because I haven’t typically had to do projects like this in the past. I don’t really have any suggestions for them. It’s been a very positive experience for us.

    They helped push us along. If we were having trouble meeting a milestone on our end, Beth would call and ask if there was anything she could do to help us. She made it clear we needed to stay on time.
