organizational developmentIn the near future, employees who start new jobs might be using VR headsets to learn about the job.

According to Biz Tech, executives at various companies are using VR for training to provide users with an immersive experience that simulates real-world examples and situations that they will likely face on the job.

“Through VR, associates can see how their actions affect that,” said officials at Walmart. “It’s helpful for associates to see mistakes in a virtual environment and know how to deal with them before they experience it in real life and don’t know what to do.”

Before you focus on this futuristic form of employee training, however, you might want to make sure each one of your employees is well versed in all the other necessary forms of workplace training. Here are some essential training policies you should go over with each one of your employees.

Organizational Development Training
According to a study by University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School and the Human Capital Institute (HCI), roughly 85% of company respondents agree that there is an urgent need to accelerate the development of their leaders. Consequently, organizations fail in hiring quality managers at least 82% of the time. With proper organizational development, new and current employees will be able to learn the necessary skills to become future leaders and succeed in those roles.

Anti-Harassment and Discrimination Policy Training
Your business cannot survive in 2017 without having a legitimate anti-harassment and discrimination policy. This needs to be addressed with every employee (and interviewee) that walks into your establishment. Harassment and discrimination situations should never be tolerated and it’s your job to prevent them as much as you can by educating your staff on proper workplace conduct.

Social Media and Online Etiquette Training
Just about every one of your employees will likely have to rely on the Internet at some point in their daily duties. Make sure that they know your company’s expectations for online behavior and how to properly operate the various technological devices that are essential to their daily jobs.
