Employee onboarding training is a moment of truth when the engagement levels of new hires begin to be established. With the war for talent at an all time high, it is critical to get onboarding right. It is also an ideal opportunity to immerse people in the organizational culture and develop the mindset you want in your new employees.
Immersive simulations help develop critical skills in the onboarding process.
The world is changing fast, creating a growing need for more effective learning & development solutions. This is an opportunity to rethink onboarding to focus on relevancy, behavior and value. It is now essential to develop skills-based, practice-oriented systems for learners. Personalized learning paths and relevant content help embrace different skill levels and learning styles.
Immersive simulations provide objective assessment of a new hire’s ability to apply skills in your business context.
Allow new employees to safely practice critical decision making in challenging business contexts and learn from their mistakes.
New employees bring varied skill levels to the business. Recognize their expertise and use skills assessment to customize their learning path from the get-go.
The modern workforce expects engaging learning anytime, anywhere, in bite-sized chunks. Delight new hires by building immersive experiences into onboarding journeys.
Traditional onboarding methods, including virtual instructor-led training (vILT), are too costly, time-consuming and prove impossible to scale. Immersive simulation helps you adapt to a digital asynchronous delivery to ensure onboarding success.
Partnering with a global professional services firm, ETU immersive simulations were deployed at strategic points within their 120 day onboarding program, targeting 55,000 new hires over a 5 year period. The simulations were designed to capture the range of working situations the new hires would find themselves in once in the job. Preparing for their new roles, the new employees navigated complex situations in the simulations and applied their knowledge.
Before ETU, the new hires would pass the knowledge tests of the onboarding program and enter the job role where significant ‘compliance mindset’ issues would manifest. Now behavioral issues are accurately identified and remediated, significantly reducing the risk profile of new hires in the job.
