How Virtual Reality Can Improve The Workplace

Virtual reality has officially fallen into the laps of the general public in recent years, no longer being a technology reserved for video games or only accessible to high tech organizations.

Now, VR is expected to grow from a $6.1 billion industry today, to a $27.9 billion industry by 2025.

There are three different types of VR, including: mobile, which involves smartphones or tablets being connected to a headset; standalone, a headset that does not need another device to operate; and desktop, which links high-performance computers and VR headsets.

Today, companies can utilize VR to enhance their business operations, and even improve their output. But how?

Employee onboarding can often be a long process, but using VR can set a more fun, engaging tone for potential workers. Using VR, prospects can actually virtually experience what a day on the job may look like, helping them have a deeper understanding of a company’s culture and environment.

Even more, HR departments can use VR to improve harassment and diversity training by allowing employees to engage in realistic simulations of interactions that could occur in the workplace.

Additionally, VR can help with safety training for industries that are high-risk. For example, some firefighters have been able to use VR to learn how to resolve certain situations and allow them to better prepare them for the real thing.

Another benefit of VR in the workplace is that it can help workers collaborate across different company branches in a seamless way, allowing projects to be done more efficiently.
