Verizon invested nearly $400 million in the development, education and training of its employees last year, and spent $100 million in tuition assistance for more than 23,000 employees. But it’s the company’s employees themselves who may be teaching one another the most.
The phone, wireless and cable TV giant encourages employees to post videos of themselves showing and telling their colleagues how to perform job-related tasks or solve common problems. To date, workers have posted more than 2,800 videos on the company’s intranet video site, VZTube. With more than 2 million views, the videos have gone viral—at least internally.
Videos depict employees demonstrating the use of computer software and other business tools. One popular video—about Samsung’s Droid Charge smartphone—logged 1,240 views within minutes of being posted.
