BeingVR

Skill building for future work, virtually.

BeingVR creates immersive experiences to reconnect humans and empower teams for future work.

Virtual reality technology, storytelling and learning through experience, come together in the perfect storm to create sticky human skills simulations for intangible and difficult to teach concepts, capabilities and behaviours. At BeingVR our team of Learning Consultants, Storytellers, Artists and Programmers work together in our tried and tested production process to build one-off experiences based on specific learning outcomes. We also continue to expand our off-the-shelf library guided by the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) prediction of top human skills to enable and empower future work, including:

• Complex Problem Solving • Creativity • Communication • Collaboration • Emotional Intelligence • Critical Thinking • Decision Making

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is an opportunity to level-up humanity, to look after at-risk workers and approach up-skilling and re-skilling with equality and inclusivity in front of mind. We know that the 4IR will profoundly re-shape the future of work and that our global workforce is under-prepared, in fact, according to a recent IBM survey of nearly 6000 execs across 50 countries less than half have skills plans in place despite the following headlines:

• Tens of millions of people are expected to transition between occupations or skill levels by 2030 (McKinsey), • 77 per cent of CEOs see the availability of key skills as the biggest threat to their business (PwC), and • 93% of employers demand hard-to-come-by soft skills to lead through change (Harvard).

We can help

1. Off-the-shelf VR stories for purchase (Do It Yourself) 2. Facilitation of tech-enabled workshops (Do It For You) 3. Design and development of your custom VR experiences (Do It With You) 4. Advice on how to adopt XR into your organisation.

Soft skills are going to be hard currency in the job market as AI and technology take over (Bersin by Deloitte).

Benefits of Learning in VR

Effective

Knowledge retention and memory recall after immersive learning is significantly higher than traditional teaching methods alone.

Removes Obstacles to Learning

Reduces apprehension and embarrassment, which often limits learning outcomes in the real world.

Repetition Strengthens Neural Networks

Allows the participant to practice until confident and forge brain connections for desired behavioural change (neuroplasticity).

Multi Sensory Learning Environment

Gives independence to explore and interact with topics in users preferred learning style.

Consequence Free

A safe, confidential and consequence free environment.

Engagement and Retention

The financial cost of disengaged employees cost Australian businesses AUS$40 billion p.a (Gallup, 2018). A memorable learning experience becomes an impactful one and majority millennials now expect meaningful development in their role.

Learning retention one year after a VR training session can be as much as 80%, compared to 20% retention after a week with traditional training (Miami Children's Health System).
We align ourselves to the UN’s sustainable development goals across:
Education, Equality, and Employability.
