    Hi ASA family,

    I hope everyone is bearing up under this heat wave.

    Has anyone had experience using Virtual Reality/ VR  head sets in training employees for jobs, and/ or using it to train them to increase safety performance while on the job?

    I have read various articles about VR being used by some large companies for these purposes, and wondered if staffing cos are doing the same.

    Stay safe and stay cool,

    David

    Hi Agape,

    Thank you for responding

    I will send you a great article about this subject if you like.

    Our family supports a school/ training program for special needs folks.  They are considering using V/R to help introduce different career occupations to the special needs folks they work with.
      
    As a former staffing co owner and now work comp solutions consultant to 250 staffing cos,  our clients are always looking for ways to add value to their staffing firms, as well as differentiate themselves from their competitors.

    I think VR may help do this in the future.

    Stay safe,

    David

    Hi David,
    The Workforce Division of our company, named TalentGro, uses virtual reality to assess our Associates' forklift operation skills.  We are able to evaluate a candidate's skills before being placed on-assignment and will even share the results of the assessment with the client.  Additionally, we can use the forklifts to train individuals who demonstrate potential for driving a forklift or need a refresher, at the request of the client. 

    Virtual reality provides a fully immersive experience, while ensuring the safety of the individual and of the facility.  We have partnered with an organization who specializes in virtual reality education and training, so please reach out to me if you'd like us to connect you with them.  Hope this helps!
