Research Alert: VR Changes the Game for Soft Skills

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST  
Host: Future Workplace Webinars
By: Anna Strasshofer, Director, Mursion and Monika Jo, Public Relations Manager, Mursion

Amid the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic disruptions, employee layoffs, and furloughs, the needs for employees have never been greater and the stakes have never been higher for managers to possess the "human" skills needed to drive business performance. The challenge of working remotely is intersecting with major societal shifts that are transforming workplace communications and company values at their core. Companies are looking for a solution, and VR training accelerates skill mastery in a realistic, efficient, and measurable way.

According to a survey of 300 L&D leaders (conducted by Mursion and Future Workplace), more than 72 percent of learning and development leaders across industries will have tried VR for soft skills training at their organization by 2022. This is more than double the 35 percent of respondents who are currently deploying VR skills simulations to help employees navigate challenging workplace scenarios in customer service, peer conflict resolution, and sales, as well as timely and critical training for diversity and inclusion, harassment, and even bedside manner for healthcare workers.

Interested in VR simulation, soft skills, frontline skills, and how you accelerate time to mastery? A VR expert but want to know how to benchmark different solutions? Join the discussion!
