Transforming challenges into opportunities: in the latest SynergyXR talk, we take a look at what is shaping the future of employee training, together with experts from Maersk Training and Copenhagen University.

SynergyXR Talks – The future of training

In today’s dynamic business environment, effective employee training isn’t just a perk – it’s a necessity. However, traditional training programs often fall short in terms of cost, effectiveness, and engagement. But don’t worry; the future of training is not a bleak landscape of the same old problems. It’s an exciting frontier of possibilities that can transform these challenges into opportunities for growth and success.

Open your mind to new opportunities, as Per Larsen, Head of Innovation at Maersk Training, and Pernille Bjørn, Deputy head of department for Research and Professor within Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) at Copenhagen University, discuss the future of employee training, through spatial computing, and immersive experiences in XR.

Elevate Your Training Cost-Efficiency Game

Cost is often the elephant in the room when it comes to training. But what if we told you that enhancing your training program doesn’t have to break the bank? By integrating digital platforms into your existing setup, you can dramatically increase cost-efficiency. As Per Larsen, an expert in training innovation, puts it, “Digital platforms are an investment in your company’s future, offering scalable solutions that adapt to your growing needs.”


Make Learning Stick, Not Slip

How much of traditional training content actually sticks? If you find your employees struggling to retain information, you’re not alone. But here’s the good news: modern training methods like interactive simulations and gamification can significantly improve engagement and retention. Imagine a training module that’s not just informative but also deeply engaging, transforming learning from a passive to an active experience.


Streamline and Simplify

Coordinating training sessions can be a logistical nightmare, but it doesn’t have to be. On-demand digital platforms offer flexibility that traditional methods can’t match. No more juggling schedules or running from one department to another. Your employees can access training materials anytime, anywhere, freeing up valuable time and resources.


Real-World Applications: More Than Just Theory

It’s easy to get lost in the buzzwords and tech jargon, but the true test of any training method is its real-world impact. Industries like manufacturing and energy are already reaping the benefits of modern training methods, from cost savings to enhanced safety protocols. These aren’t hypothetical benefits; they’re tangible improvements that can revolutionize how your business approaches training.


What Lies Ahead: The Untapped Potential of AI

While technologies like VR and AR are already making waves, the future might hold even more promise with the potential integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Imagine a world where your training modules adapt in real-time to each learner’s needs or provide instantaneous, detailed feedback. While these capabilities aren’t yet fully realized, they offer a tantalizing glimpse into what the future of training could hold.
