A digitally transformed solution

Traditional onboarding methods, including virtual instructor-led training, are too costly, time-consuming and prove impossible to scale. Immersive simulation helps you adapt to digital asynchronous delivery, to ensure onboarding success.

CLIent story

onboarding success

A global professional services firm partnered with ETU to deploy immersive simulations 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.

Client success story
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.
