Virtual Recruitment & HR
VR could offer HR departments & companies to be fully remote, whilst still providing more personal interactions. This is especially true of recruitment processes. Not only could virtual interviews become much more in-depth and personal, but the questions and tasks that we give prospective employees could reach new levels. For example, using VR to put interviewees in a virtual situation for them to respond to, rather than simply asking a situational question.
Education & Training
Online education is becoming more and more common. Whether it be college or university courses, virtual learning experiences could be enhanced by VR. It’s not only schools that can benefit either – on-the-job training could also see huge improvements. With companies able to facilitate more learning opportunities on a virtual level, staff can receive better remote training, develop their skills, and build workplace relationships.
New Levels of Entertainment
The entertainment industry is perhaps one of the most obvious that will benefit from VR. A new, in-depth, 3D perspective will give film a whole new meaning. But more than just movies & TV, VR will give people the opportunity to virtually attend sporting events, concerts and more.
For businesses, this could mean a wider selection of employee rewards and incentives, or even virtual workplace “outings”.
