Employee Engagement: Need-to-Know Corporate Comms Video Stats

Using live video for corporate communications is a great strategy to keep your employees engaged and on the same page. Streaming all-hands meetings, product announcements, and training sessions are just a few of the ways savvy businesses are using live video to retain employees and scale growth. We’ve collected these corporate comms video stats from around the web to help you understand how live video can boost employee engagement and productivity.

Livestreaming internal communications is easier than ever, but many businesses are lagging behind. Some organizations have concerns about budget and employee bandwidth. Getting started with live video is not just easy and cost-effective – it benefits your entire company. Engaged employees are more productive and report greater workplace satisfaction.

“Nothing beats a live broadcast, and you don’t need an entire crew to create an engaging livestream.” – Juraj Holub, U.S. Marketing Director, Sli.do

New from Livestream: Streaming to Multiple Channels, Social Networks, and Pages

Our latest Simulcast features make streaming to multiple channels from your Livestream account easier than ever. Simulcasting broadens your livestream audience and allows you to reach viewers where they already are, while streamlining your encoding workflow and monitoring your analytics from a single dashboard. We’ve added some exciting new features to Simulcast that are now available:

Simulcasting to Multiple Facebook Pages

We’ve added support for Simulcasting to multiple Facebook pages for customers who maintain presences across multiple pages or are looking to extend their content syndication even further through publisher partnerships. You can now maximize your potential audience by streaming to up to five Facebook pages with “admin” or “editor” privileges from a single Facebook account linked to your Simulcast settings. Visit our help center article to learn more.

Starting and Stopping Mid-Stream

Now you can offer viewers a “sneak preview” of your live content on social and direct audiences back to watch on your own website and apps. This improvement unlocks the ability to go live to any destination at a specific moment or end your stream at any moment without impacting your Livestream archived recording. This means you can stream the intro of your event on Facebook Live, with a call-to-action to watch the full stream on your managed properties.

Brands like USA Today and Tough Mudder have adopted similar strategies to drive viewership and traffic back to their websites from social channels. This functionality also lets you test your stream as a Draft event, publishing at the right moment you’re ready for viewers to watch on Livestream and other social channels. For a helpful how-to on Start-and-Stop Simulcasting, read our help center article.

New Dashboard Design

Simplify your live video workflow. Your Livestream events dashboard now features a “streaming to” section. This allows you to confirm at a glance that your events are streaming to the correct destination and access your event-level Simulcast settings with one click. Visit your dashboard to see the updates.
