VR, XR, and the Future of Work
The way we think of work is changing rapidly. From remote work to continuous learning and soft skills development, the way we do business is changing.
By working with ForwardXP, you will be able to keep your company ahead of the curve by creating the tools you need to strengthen your workforce wherever they may be.
Closing the Physical Gap
Businesses the world over are going to a remote, distributed approach, making remote training and collaboration tools a must.
According to an Accenture survey, 80% of executives believe XR solutions will be key in closing the physical gap between employees and customers both internally and externally to their companies.
VR for Continuous Learning
Beyond the move to remote, businesses are moving to provide their employees with methods for continued training and development, be it for a content refresh or to learn new skills. VR provides your employees with an affordable, on-demand method for training.
Using VR, employees are able to enter a pristine training environment at any time. Removing the need for travel or others to help with the training allows the employee the freedom to re-engage with their training at any time, anywhere.
These training environments allow you to recreate your workspace - be it office, warehouse, or skyscraper - in multiple states at any time, removing the need for costly preparation or the halting of production or construction. Training on a machine or process can now be done in a simulated, lifelike environment while your business continues as usual.
Using XR for training has been shown to provide faster training and better outcomes when compared to both traditional classroom and e-learning settings.
In fact, a PwC study of soft-skills training showed that using VR took ¼ the time as in-class training with a 40% and 35% improvement over classroom and e-learners when it came to applying those skills.
VR for training also improves both employee confidence and recall. This improved learning, combined with continuous training, provides your employees with the tools they need to get up to speed quickly and maintain their skillset longer.

VR and the Future of Work

While VR excels at dealing with highly dangerous or expensive training situations, it is also appropriate for “soft skills” and corporate culture trainings due to its ability to help instill empathy response. The cost of VR is lower than ever and the technology has expanded leaps and bounds, making it both more cost-effective and engaging for a large number of enterprise training subjects.
