Virtual QE continues to make strides to improve the working environment for workers and employers, by making training accessible to employees of differing abilities. Their signature product, Video Work Instructions, may open the door to labor availability for manufactures in even more ways. For example, a new hire who is deaf, can train using a Video Work Instruction, because the combination of video and captioning is more effective than most traditional classroom-like training, which often lack visual aids, or captioned safety films.
Speaking of captioning, did you know that any work instruction can have subtitles embedded, in any language? This is another way to instantly open hiring to workers of any language or language preference.
Finally, workers of all learning abilities are easily able to understand Video Work Instruction content, in fact, all of our brains prefer to learn with video. The need to hire specialized, skilled workers who understand the technical terms and jargon laden in traditional text instructions, are a thing of the past.
