In the fast-paced world of advancing technology, employee training and development have become critical factors in an organisation's success. Traditional training methods often fall short in engaging learners and retaining knowledge, but there's a better way. XR / VR technology and online immersive experiences have the potential to revolutionise the way corporate learning programmes are delivered.
Talespin, a leading developer of enterprise XR solutions (and our newest partner), has compiled a comprehensive guide to highlight the benefits and best practices of VR training adoption. In this blog we dive into the key insights from the guide.
Ever wondered why learners forget so much of what they're taught? Traditional methods just aren't cutting it. But with VR training, we can change the game. By simulating real-world scenarios in a risk-free environment, employees can practice and refine their skills. The result? 275% increase in learner’s confidence to apply what they've learned on the job compared to traditional classroom methods! From soft skills training to onboarding, VR offers a dynamic and efficient learning experience that engages your employees like never before.
“In a world where learners forget 70% of what they are taught within 24 hours, and 90% within a month – there has to be a better way to engage workers and retain knowledge”
Numbers never lie, and in the era of data analytics, we've got you covered. VR training provides you with data that allows you to assess learner performance, identify improvement areas and fine-tune training content accordingly. Imagine making informed decisions about your learning initiatives with fresh and transparent data on employee skill development. Whether it's individual learner performance, historic module success, or team-level achievements, VR training empowers you to quantify the impact of your training like never before.
When deciding on the data to measure within your immersive learning programme, it's essential to consider your specific use case and objectives. These factors will guide you in identifying the metrics that matter most.
“Companies are already taking advantage of the ROI of learning in the Metaverse, deploying VR training for use cases like leadership development, employee onboarding and interpersonal skills training”
Every organisation is unique and so should be your approach to VR training adoption. By evaluating the workforce, geographical locations, and obtaining executive buy-in, you can gain valuable insights into the areas where a VR training programme would thrive most effectively within your company.
Through a structured process, we at Capability Group can guide you through the process of aligning VR training with your company's culture, requirements, and workforce dynamics.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to VR training.
