Walmart has teamed with STRIVR and Oculus to provide over 45 interactive VR training modules for employees. Employees are put through 'What If' situations in virtual reality that are hard to replicate elsewhere. 70% of the Oculus Rift trained employees scored higher than employees trained with materials and techniques. 30% of Rift trained employees found the interactive training superior to conventional methods. Walmart is going to purchase 17,000 Oculus Go VR units to train its 1 million employees in 4,500 stores across the U.S.. "VR training provides a safe space for associates to experience situations that are nearly impossible to replicate," McKeel says. "The training is experiential, memorable, and fast. For example, associates in stores receiving our new Pickup Towers -- think vending machines for online orders -- used VR training to learn how to use it in about 10 minutes."
