React to changing market needs
Upskill your global workforce. Bring efficiency and repeatability to training with VR.
Transforming learning and development through VR
From technical skills for the shopfloor to soft skills like negotiation, immersive VR training helps drive uniform standards across the organisation and brings flexibility and resiliency to CPG business operations. All at a fraction of the cost of conventional classroom-based training.
Drive training efficiency
Your people are your greatest asset. Yet only 36 percent of those new to the workforce feel they have the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in their role. Changing business parameters in the CPG sector means highly effective onboarding to build new skills and drive greater productivity is essential.
VR brings efficiency to the process. Virtual training scenarios can be created once then rolled out across the organisation and undertaken remotely. This makes training a centralised, repeatable offering that helps preserve institutional knowledge and practical experience.
Introduce resilience and repeatability
Evolving market conditions call for operational flexibility in manufacturing and distribution operations while ensuring standards are maintained. Helping employees and contractors upskill and reskill quickly in response to new imperatives is a key part of business continuity.
VR makes it easier to bring employees up to speed. New starters can be trained at scale, with VR helping employees to learn new skills 55% faster. Training can also be repeated on-demand as needed and without taking critical business equipment offline, further driving efficiency.
Risk and safety management
Safety incidents can have a significant impact both socially and in terms of productivity. There’s also the business cost of injury compensation, which is estimated at $62 billion a year.
Experiential VR safety training helps employees and contractors practice work-safe behaviours in a risk-free environment, ensuring they comply with international safety regulations. People learn best by doing, and as a result are 200% less likely to make a mistake after VR training than conventional learning.
Build culture and soft skills
VR training creates a safe environment for practicing and fine-tuning interpersonal skills. It is proven to be a more engaging and impactful way to build key soft skills including problem solving, negotiation, and leadership development.
VR can also reinforce a strong corporate culture, delivering enhanced diversity and inclusion training to further attract and retain talent, as well as building preference for the employer brand. Employees can train anywhere and at their own pace. This greatly reduces costs, downtime, and operational disruption.
Enhance sales and marketing initiatives
A lot of time and money is spent to find the optimal placement for in-store products and the ideal pricing strategy. VR makes it easier to trial new ideas and test their impact on the consumer experience.
Virtual retail store scenarios can help employees visualise what products go well together. It’s also a cost-effective way to perform market research at scale, gaining valuable insight into how product placement impacts behaviour and how this can be used to maximise sales.
