New research shows that VR training has an 80% retention rate as opposed to 20% for traditional training


Last week, we spent two days at the R Lab Well event, where MaryKate Mahoney, the head of VR for healthcare at HP, presented the stat in the subject line. In fact, it seems like every other week we're sharing some excellent data about the benefits of training in VR, and it's only a matter of time before everyone catches up and start producing VR training content.

But maybe your organization is a little behind the curve. Your boss, or your boss's boss, still thinks videos that no one watches are just fine for employee training. Well, fear not -- our workshops are the absolute perfect first step to engaging with us and arming your team with all the knowledge and data they need to sell in the concept of VR training. We'd love to help you get up to speed so that your company doesn't get left behind.

Cortney also presented a session about user design and VR at the event, and in honor of Rick Owens winning the CFDA award for best menswear designer, dressed like him for the occasion. 


We were very excited to contribute a piece to an amazing new Medium blog called the Near Future of Retail. Helmed by two of our absolute favorites, Tony Parisi and Neil Redding, the site is a fascinating deep dive into how we'll shop in the next several years. We wrote about using VR for job screening in customer service roles, and how that can help marginalized communities find their way back into the job market. We're actively looking for a partner to help us build this vision -- if that's you, let us know. 


On Tuesday, we're shooting an amazing new project, with more details to come in due time. This weekend, Cortney will be judging the XR Brain Jam at XR for Change; she'll also being speaking there next Monday and AvenueS, our project with Accenture, will be demoed throughout the event. 

If you are interested in booking a member of our team to speak at an event, please feel free to drop us a line. And as always, we're looking for great partners to work with us to create amazing immersive experiences. We've already worked with Accenture, Verizon, Coke, the Air Force, DDI, and Unity -- let's add your name to the list next.
