FOUNDRY 45s – S01E05 – Yi Breneman from The Learning Brand

Hi, welcome to Foundry 45s, where we give you 45 seconds of insights from training leaders around the world. Today we’re very fortunate to have Yi Breneman from The Learning Brand. Hello Yi! Where do you see training organizations getting the most value out of deploying VR?

Hi, Dave, that’s a great question, thank you for asking that question. So for large, complex organizations, using VR for training allows employees to participate and practice in 3D without spending a ton of money on physical equipment and trainers. Besides technical skills, VR can also be used for soft skills and cultural diversity-related training with a virtual element of remote coaching. Participants can practice handling challenging situations using VR in a safe environment. This is especially relevant when you have multiple global locations and folks who work from home. Regardless of location or time zone, VR can ensure the training environment is consistent, resulting in a more professional workforce.
