Across industries and functions, soft skills are a clear differentiator in individual and team performance. They are both rare and valuable because they typically require real experience (mistakes, failure and reflection) to master and apply on the job. But how can learners practice high-stakes interpersonal situations in a safe and efficient fashion? Powered by a blend of AI and live human interaction, human-in-the-loop VR simulation has become the ideal way to gain essential skills in the workplace. It combines true human intelligence with AI in order to unlock empathic potential in your workforce and ensure organizational readiness to perform. Practice is authentic and spontaneous while cost-effective and scalable. 

Whether your goal is to drive productivity gains or improve engagement/retention, simulation can cascade ROI across the entire value chain. Research from Chief Learning Officer magazine shows an average return of $4,000 for every $1100 spent developing such skills. In this session, we’ll review several case studies and show how several companies incorporated simulation into training to achieve immediate return and long-term advantage. 

Together we will explore:
  • The learning science behind soft skills training
  • How organizations like H&R Block, Genentech, BNSF, and T-Mobile are leveraging VR in areas like leadership development, customer service, and sales enablement
  • Quantifying success and ROI of soft skills training
  • Benchmarking attributes of XR providers
