Reimagine Workplace Training with Virtual Reality

As we continue to see businesses leverage Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies to create more immersive and experiential content, it’s clear that these tools are here to stay. With around 49% of Gen Z employees believing that VR will revolutionize their employment in the coming years, it’s clear that these technologies will only become more important and prolific.

So what does this mean for businesses? Simply put, VR has the potential to elevate productivity to the next level. By leveraging this technology, businesses can create better e-learning content that showcases real-life experiences. This, in turn, can help employees better understand complex concepts and procedures. When employees have a better understanding of their work and environment they’re more likely to be productive and successful.

So if your business is looking for a way to stay ahead of the curve, consider investing in AR and VR technologies. You may just find that these tools are the key to success.

Virtual Reality Delivers Training with Low Risk and High Reward

By using VR, companies can provide their employees with realistic simulations of work environments and tasks, allowing them to gain experience and knowledge without the worry of making mistakes that could be costly in a real-world setting. Removing the shackles of the real world, VR training allows the simulation of the impossible where the only limit is your imagination. With unlimited variation, content and environments, you can put your employees through a host of scenarios to test and nurture excellence.

Practice Makes Perfect

Virtual reality training provides the ability to repeat tasks and scenarios an infinite number of times. This allows for mastery of skills and knowledge in a safe environment before moving on to the real world. It also allows for quick and easy resetting of scenarios, so that trainees can gain more experience in a shorter amount of time and reinforces key learning objectives via repetition.

Cost-effective Training at Scale

Whilst investing in any new technology for your business can be daunting, VR has a proven track record for delivering unmatched knowledge transfer and retention. Medical implementations boast savings of more than £150K per headset over three years when compared to traditional in-person training sessions, with other industries reflecting similar cost reductions.

Bespoke Learning Content

Don’t settle for off-the-shelf, standard experiences – VR training can be bespoke and built exactly to your specification, with your content and your branding. Tailor the learning experience for your employees, and inject your business values and unique teachings to elevate your workforce.

Increased Engagement for Lasting Information Retention

It’s no secret that people are more engaged when they’re playing a game than when they’re sitting in a classroom. The same principle applies to VR training. When employees are placed in a virtual environment, they’re more engaged in the training process and more likely to retain the information they’re learning. There are a few reasons for this.

First, VR training is more immersive than traditional training methods. When employees are wearing a VR headset, they feel like they’re actually in the environment they’re learning about. This makes the training more realistic and therefore more engaging.

Second, VR training can be more hands-on than traditional methods. Rather than simply listening to a lecture or watching a video, VR training can put employees in the middle of the action. They can interact with their surroundings and practice the skills they’re learning in a safe environment. This makes the training more interactive and engaging.

Finally, VR training can be customized to each individual employee. Everyone learns differently, and VR training can be tailored to each person’s learning style. This makes the training more effective and engaging for each individual.
