Title

Should your company use VR for onboarding new employees?

Summary

Accenture recently made headlines by sending all new hires Meta Quest 2 headsets so they could complete basic onboarding through VR. This post would discuss the benefits -- everybody gets the same message, gamification, meeting coworkers in a virtual breakroom, etc. -- as well as some downsides, such as tracking and recording employee reactions to various events (and using those reactions to determine assignments and career paths).
