VR Changes the Game for Soft Skills Training

Produced by Mursion and Future Workplace

Release date: December 2020

Mursion and Future Workplace surveyed more than 300 learning and development leaders to discover which soft skills organizations value most in today’s markedly more remote working environment. We also set out to understand how organizations currently develop these skills and what they believe will work best for soft skills training—especially now that in-person learning opportunities have all but disappeared.

Our findings revealed that personalized, immersive virtual reality (VR) simulations are moving out in front when it comes to closing soft skills gaps. They are especially beneficial in business-critical areas such as team management and collaboration; sales and customer service; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
