At TelSpan we specialize in what we like to call conferencing events. A conferencing event is a high touch conference involving great attention to detail in the planning and execution. Our events often involve a combination of multiple services including operator assisted audio conferencing, web conferencing, video, online registration, recording and archiving, streaming media and more. At TelSpan we assign our clients a personal Event Advisor to help with the planning and execution of their conferencing event. Our professional staff will ensure that your event is executed flawlessly, presenting you in a positive and professional light to your event attendees.
In the world of conferencing events, earnings calls can be among the highest-pressure in nature. The company presenting is under tremendous pressure to come off looking great, even while the participants are scrutinizing every word and looking for issues in the earnings report. Technical glitches or presentation gaffes can not only throw the speaker off, but may reduce the confidence of investors.
Luckily there are many ways to reduce the stress and increase the chances of success on your earnings call or other type of conferencing event, whether you are delivering good or not-so-good news to your investors.

The search for talent has become more challenging in many ways. The internet makes the job search global, high unemployment sometimes presents a bigger pool of candidates to wade through, along with less time and fewer resources to devote towards hiring.
At TelSpan we’re helping HR professionals with virtual solutions to these challenges. Using audio and/or web conferencing solutions, hiring managers can quickly and efficiently interview and pre-screen candidates from anywhere in the world before scheduling a face-to-face meeting.
Phone interviews are very common, but have you considered adding a video component to the phone interview? Utilizing a video stream over the web allows you to gauge the candidate’s engagement, personal presentation and mannerisms in ways that cannot always be conveyed over the phone alone.
A web solution also allows you to share your website, the applicant’s resume, and any other documents or information pertinent to the interview.
Virtual interviewing solutions can allow you to screen a greater quantity of candidates, efficiently, in less time than ever before. Candidates appreciate being able to learn more about your organization and the position in a virtual manner, before committing time and travel to a face-to-face meeting.
At TelSpan we’re ready to help design a virtual interviewing solution that fits your needs.
This past week TelSpan exhibited at the INSHRM (Indiana Society of Human Resource Managers) Annual Convention. We spent a day speaking with HR professionals about their work and the pains they experience. What we learned is that our conferencing and communications systems are a perfect solution for HR professionals looking to address some of the following needs:
• Onboarding remote employees
• Creating video training libraries to replace repetitive live sessions
• Creating corporate recruiting videos
• Using technology to interview candidates virtually
• Using conferencing solutions to reduce corporate travel costs
Studies show that flexible work arrangements are on the rise as telecommuting and other flex-time arrangements increase in popularity for both employers and employees. Utilizing remote employees saves money on office space and furnishings and gives employees more freedom and flexibility. Remote hiring provides a larger talent pool to HR professionals.
Onboarding remote employees can be challenging. Face-to-face interaction is preferred, but when this is not feasible virtual methods are a great replacement. From webcams to screen sharing to video sharing, web conferencing can make it easy to meet online one-on-one or in a group. Webcams allow the “face time” that is so important in building new relationships while training videos, computer screens and documents can be shared with the trainees.
Next week we’ll discuss the benefit of creating video training libraries.
