VR Based Soft Skills Training Offers Significant Benefits

VR is gaining inroads in soft skill corporate training, opening up a wide range of industries and businesses that can benefit from its applicability. Employees who are used to physical or desktop-based e-training modules will stand to benefit significantly from the vastly improved delivery mechanism VR offers – an immersive experience that increases engagement, retention and productivity, thereby improving training outcomes. For enterprises, this means a better trained and more engaged workforce, and potential cost savings at a larger scale.

A 2020 study conducted by PwC found that VR learners were:

– 4x faster to train
– 275% more confident to apply skills learned after training
– 3.75x more emotionally connected to content than classroom learners
– 4x more focused than their e-learning peers
