Enterprise Video Webcasting for Town Hall Meetings

Enterprise Video Webcasting for Town Hall Meetings

In Webcasting News by David Kovalcik

For enterprise organizations, the company all-hands or town hall meeting is one of the most important events in a corporate communications strategy. Video webcasting a properly structured and delivered town hall event will allow you to stream live, capture, re-broadcast on-demand, and reach your entire intended audience on a basic internet connection, in an incredibly cost-effective manner.

The company town hall (typically a quarterly or annual event) can now easily be attended by every employee, and it allows the CEO and/or management to present company goals, awards and recognition; engage in planning sessions; and provide motivation for the work ahead. The value of the town hall, live or virtual, resides in good engagement with your audience for transparency, communicating the company’s future plans, addressing employee concerns and much more.

Video Webcasting such events allows you to provide all of your employees with the ability to both watch and participate in the activities of a traditional town hall meeting from anywhere in the world while all but eliminating travel costs, minimizing downtime, and reducing venue costs. That’s right- engage AND save. Virtual town hall meetings can be customized to include chat functionality for Q & A, surveys and polling and real-time collaboration tools to create a fully interactive town hall experience for every employee, regardless of location.

Video Webcasting Town Hall Meetings – The Benefits

Hold inexpensive town halls on a regular basis without the logistical challenges and experience the benefit of:

  • Lower meeting costs with a more effective way to increase your employee engagement
  • Consistent message delivery through more engaging meeting experiences
  • Provide more frequent updates on critical content
  • Motivate your employees
  • One central internal location to host all your company news, executive meetings and HR announcements

Archiving (recording for replay) these meetings is a great way to engage those who may have missed the live original presentation and helps you ensure consistency of the delivered message. Archiving also helps to maintain momentum and interest in the events and their content.
