The new video needed to communicate:

  • CGU’s employee value proposition, focusing on CGU as a place to develop and build your career
  • What CGU has to offer that might be unique and of interest to people in related industries
  • The values and behaviours that underpin CGU’s culture
Our approach

  • Selecting a small number of CGU employees from across the business to be profiled in the video, being mindful to choose men and women from varying management levels and departments.
  • Tailoring interview questions to ensure key messages were delivered in the words of CGU’s people, adding to the authenticity of the messages.
  • Capturing footage of each employees interests and hobbies outside of work to help potential new employees relate to people in the video.
  • Re-purposing footage to create one hero video and a series of shorter profile pieces on each employee.

CGU were very happy with the execution of these videos. Key messages were met and production was completed within a tight deadline. Through this production, CGU has a lot of great footage that they will no doubt re-purpose for internal use – a great little tip for other businesses to do the same!
