The latest State of the Global Workplace study by Gallup found that worldwide, only 15% of adults who work full-time are engaged in their work. There is a need now more than ever to increase employee engagement and achievement. The rise of VR equips a business with the tools to hone in on a business’s greatest asset: its employees. VR fills in the ‘engagement gap’ to activate employee motivation and maintain a healthy business mindset. Here’s how:
- VR unpacks an employees doubts about pursuing a certain activity through allowing virtual reality scenarios to become an employees ‘GPs guide’;
- There is no outside disturbance in VR;
- Each person becomes aware of responsibilities and embraces a company’s expectations in terms of performance as the scenario-based training modules are full of engaging demonstrations that relate directly to the employee’s role;
- VR sets in motion the structure and strategies crucial to upskill employees.
Step Into A Better Organised Workplace Today With VR
VR prioritises organisation in many ways. In summary, these are three of the core ways a business can ignite a passion for keeping on top of work practices and lead a better prepared workplace to long-term success.
Priority 1: Putting Workplace Productivity “in order”
In VR, distractions are nonexistent. It is just the employee, a headset and a wealth of multi-sensory learning opportunities. One of VR’s major benefits is its capacity to convey to employees the expectations and responsibilities of the company they work for. It goes beyond mandatory and annual compliance training, as Virtual Reality invites employees to engage with the values and morals of a company, all within an immersive digital environment. This uniform approach provides a framework, and without it businesses can fall into the trap of a discombobulated culture. VR is like a “GPs” navigating employees on the most successful communication and soft skill traits to utilise in order to build an inclusive company culture, choosing the fastest route to educating staff so that common teams goals are aligned and can be achieved.
Priority 2: Lighten the Load
VR showcases how to get a job done properly, minus the pressure of in-person training. It helps to organise the relationships of co-workers, by grounding an aforementioned sense of uniformity. Through VR training, companies iron out workplace inefficiencies and create a ‘put together’, organised and confident atmosphere. Yet it also has the potential to lighten the load for employees as everyone is trained to perform tasks in a particular way and to eliminate time-wasting behaviours. It goes without being said, when employees excel at being organised, productivity naturally follows.
The increased productivity that can be fostered using VR for onboarding employees, will thus initiate clear and healthy boundaries of the relationship between an employee and management. VR highlights the importance of the individual taking charge of tasks, to avoid instances where management has to step in to fix errors that could have been avoided. This leaves time aside for those already well-established in a company to organise other business priorities and maintain productivity.
Priority 3: Keeps the Ground Running
Nowadays, it is common that business’s work internationally and also remotely. Remote work has the potential to lower costs for businesses, but without an efficient and organised system in place, it also has the potential to put workloads in disarray. Businesses are having to think of an efficient approach for training their employees remotely that doesn’t involve endless paperwork and extensive excel documents. More often than not such paperwork is neglected by employees due to obligations and the lack of follow-up in tracking employee performance. In addition, many product and service business’s, are forever catching up to customer demand. As such, businesses are forever being ambushed with paperwork and customer related communications on a daily basis. Luckily, VR can be used for training at an employees home and revised at anytime an employee feels is necessary to improve in a particular area. With training always within reach, employees are infused with confidence to keep up with their workloads whilst management wasted on organising untracked training.
Keeping track of employee progress has never been easier, as using its data tracking abilities, VR spots who need to complete further training and for which part of training. Every large business is made up of teams, and within each department, training is required to harness and regulate specific skill sets. VR training is curated to cater to each department, often separately, depending on the business owners plan for training. For instance, if a company is international, a business may choose to dispatch VR training separate training modules to its operations team that work in an overseas factory.
Another great thing about VR is that if a business chooses to update their training modules, VR can keep track of an employees training results.
