Walmart is bringing VR instruction to all of its U.S. training centers


Walmart , the world’s largest retailer, will soon be using virtual reality to help train its employees on topics like management and customer service. VR instruction will be used at each of the retailer’s 200 “Walmart Academy” training centers in the U.S., helping educate the estimated 150,000 employees that will go through the program each year.
Each location will have an Oculus Rift headset and gaming PC showcasing a collection of VR training content.The virtual reality instruction Walmart will be using is entirely 360-degree video-based and will include interactive on-screen cues asking trainees to make decisions after encountering various situations. These scenarios may be related to customer service, management or seasonal situations like encountering the Black Friday rush in VR. Training experiences will range from around thirty seconds to about five minutes.
