The goal of virtual reality-enhanced training is to create realistic workplace experiences and allow employees to take risks while working in demanding environments.
Immersive technology allows for on-the-job training without downtime for the company or danger to the employee and co-workers. As critical as it is to business success, job training can be costly regarding production and manpower, and some scenarios are impossible to replicate without immersive virtual reality.
Virtual reality offers companies a training option that is as effective as live training at a fraction of the cost. According to research, learners are more likely to retain what they are taught through "learning by doing" as opposed to just learning by reading or listening to a presentation.* The immersive technology provides hands-on experiences that allow for better learning outcomes.
