Explore the VR solutions we offer those working in logistics, including soft skill retention, onboarding and reinforcing safe practices.
Create a high-performing training environment
Give employees the interactive training experience they need to enhance speed and boost productivity, enabling you to maximise warehouse utilisation.
Addressing the sector’s biggest challenges
Immersive VR training helps you onboard new employees faster, at a lower cost and introduces greater efficiency.
Optimise employee onboarding
Despite the advances of technology, warehouses require a lot of manual labour. Whether it’s processing goods, controlling packing equipment, operating a forklift, or loading a truck, no warehouse can function without well-trained staff.
With VR, warehouse operators can learn to use new equipment in an immersive, fully interactive environment that’s proven to cut time to proficiency by 53%. Not only does VR help get new starters operational much faster, but warehouse machinery doesn’t have to be taken offline for the purpose of training.
Reduce training costs
Whether being brought up to speed by an experienced member of the team or in a classroom environment as part of a group, the cost of traditional training is high. Using professional instructors is expensive. And, if experienced team members are pulled off their main duties to train a new starter, productivity will drop.
VR training protects warehouse workflows, and it’s 50%+ more cost effective than classroom-based alternatives – you can create training content once and deploy it again and again.
Reinforce safe practices
Operational efficiency is a key driver behind the use of technology in logistics. But it cannot come at the cost of health and safety. Ensuring operatives know how to identify and respond to hazards is critical. Even the smallest mistake could lead to injury.
After virtual reality health & safety training, employees are 200% less likely to make a mistake. And, as training is undertaken in a virtual environment, there’s no risk to employees, equipment, or customer goods.
Build culture and soft skills
Logistics managers need a mix of soft and leadership skills to get the most out of their teams. It’s important that they can communicate effectively, handle difficult conversations, negotiate, and show empathy. VR offers the hands-on, interactive training required to build confidence in these areas.
Virtual reality in corporate training has proven to be an engaging, cost-effective way for building the soft skills needed for any work scenario. Also, employees can complete VR training anywhere and any time, without an impact to operations.
Attract the next generation of talent
Logistics operations have become increasingly complex. They involve many technologically-driven processes, which has changed the type of skills needed to maximise efficiencies.
Attracting and retaining a diverse range of skilled candidates depends on enhancing the employee experience. VR can help to differentiate your employer brand, as well as introducing more effective pre-hire skills screening. Candidates can be assessed on their technical skills by performing an in-role task within a virtual environment.
