VR for HR
With working from home becoming the norm, companies have been looking for new ways to engage remote employees. Many of them have turned to virtual reality as it not only provides an alternative space for collaboration, but also helps train and recruit staff. Viar360
, for instance, uses the technology to create immersive training experiences that replace lecture-style classes and dull onboarding presentations. Airbus
also launched a VR Flight Trainer program for pilots to practise flying. Meanwhile, organisations like Deutsche Bahn
are using VR in the recruitment process to attract and assess candidates. As VR headsets become more affordable, it won’t be surprising if more companies across different industries also hop on the VR bandwagon for employee engagement and training in the future.
