But with the evolution of Virtual Reality (VR), business leaders are finding that they no longer need to sacrifice effectiveness or scale in order to train their employees.

Watch Jeremy Bailenson, founding director of Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab and world-renowned VR expert, share his findings on why VR is the most engaging, scalable and effective way to train employees.

  • How VR training differs from traditional methods
  • Why employees learn better and retain more with VR
  • Ways to build empathy in your employees
  • How to create the most effective training content for VR
