VR training creates a highly immersive and interactive experience, allowing employees to practice and learn new skills in a simulated environment that mimics real-life scenarios. This enhances the learning process, allowing employees to retain information better and apply their knowledge more effectively.
Investing in Virtual Reality (VR) training is not just a trend, it is a smart decision backed by research and data. A recent study conducted by PwC
showed that employees trained in VR completed the training up to four times faster than in the classroom and 1.5 times faster than e-learning. Despite the additional time required for VR headset onboarding, VR training was still three times faster than classroom training and 1.15x faster than e-learning.
The results of the study were not just limited to the speed of training completion, VR training also had a significant impact on the trainees' confidence, emotional connection, and focus. Trainees who underwent VR training were up to 275% more confident to act on what they learned, felt 3.75 times more emotionally connected to the content than classroom learners and 2.3 times more connected than e-learners. In addition, VR-trained learners were up to 4 times more focused during training than their e-learning peers and 1.5 times more focused than their classroom peers. These results demonstrate the clear benefits of VR training and why it is worth investing in.
