Corporate Training Is More Engaging and Effective With Virtual Reality
Employee retention is critical in today’s tight job market and that means that building a workplace culture of inclusion and collaboration is essential for HR and skills development leaders. Whether you are using classroom or e-learning, these are difficult skills to teach that require real-world practice in a safe environment. This is where virtual reality (VR) can be used to enhance existing training programs.
VR soft skills training content provides a unique opportunity for employees to have difficult conversations with simulated peers, direct reports, managers, or customers to learn important skills. The headset provides a more immersive experience that helps them better handle situations that they may encounter in real life. Putting trainees in these situations within a virtual environment keeps them feel comfortable to work through emotions and responses without the unrealistic or pressure situation of practicing with a peer in a classroom setting.
Research studies on utilizing virtual reality has proven that VR training courses on communication skills are faster to learn and that trainees feel more confident to apply the skills they learned compared to classroom training.
