Virtual Reality for New Employee and Upskill Training
Many changes to the job market, from the pandemic to the growing retirement of baby boomers, has many employers looking for more efficient ways to on board new employees and get existing employees to move up in skill level. Oberon is helping speed up the onboarding process, increase training efficiency and allow employers to screen candidates more effectively for challenging and complex roles. The photo-realistic and fully immersive environments allow you to see how employees will perform when faced with real-world scenarios, both tactically and emotionally. Our fully immersive, interactive solutions bring entertainment-level VR to commercial applications. Utilizing sense-memory training techniques, we can reduce human error in your workplace and eliminate training incidences, while saving your organization on costs due to equipment shut-downs, production delays, and even lower insurance rates.
Industries Using Virtual Reality for Training
Learning and mastering new skills take time, and classroom and computer-based courses do not have the same impact and knowledge retention as training that involves doing. Virtual Reality allows employers to create training environments in which trainees experience scenarios in minutes or hours that may otherwise take years to encounter on the job. Having the ability to complete and repeat training allows employees to learn faster, retain knowledge longer and experience more. Employers can evaluate trainees’ ability to perform specific tasks in specific environments. For example, a trainee can operate a fire extinguisher to put out an unexpected explosion near them or a trainee can repair machinery in a confined space or at extreme heights. Knowing your employees’ capabilities before they are put into a real-world situation allows you to expand employees’ abilities and minimize skills gaps to retain and recruit new people.

Benefits of Virtual Reality Training
Our fully immersive, interactive training solutions bring realistic virtual environments to your organization. Because VR utilizes sense-memory techniques, knowledge retention rates are dramatically increased and neither trainees and nor equipment is placed at risk. A recent 2020 PWC study shows employees completed VR programs 4 times faster than in-person training and 1.5 times faster than e-learning. In addition, VR training results in retention rates of up to 80% one year after training, compared to 20% just one week after traditional training.
