Swedish firm PostNord teams up with Warpin to train employees in metaverse

PostNord, a Swedish postal service provider, stated that using VR training modules increases the employees work efficiency upto 80% compared to e-learning.

PostNord, a Swedish postal services provider, is raising the stakes by the VR and AR for staff recruitment and training. It has partnered with Warpin, a Stockholm-based metaverse company, to train its employees in the metaverse. PostNord’s Head of Training, Patrik Agren, explained why the firm is keen to accept this proactive approach as it helps integrate individuals rapidly.

VR learning modules help the employees to better immerse themselves in the initial phase of their work. The use of VR and AR in the workplace increases employee efficiency upto 80% more compared to e-learning. It saves the firm’s time and money when compared to traditional classroom training. 

PostNord and Warpin have previously also collaborated on a series of virtual learning courses. These courses can be accessed using virtual reality (VR) headsets. In the simulated learning environment, employees can learn duties like sorting parcels and operating cars.

According to Warpin co-founder and CEO Emma Riddestad, people feel that the applications of VR and AR are mostly for social, gaming, and entertainment purposes only. She added that its actual gains will come from better treatment, education, and work experience. Ridderstad also cited studies on cognitive therapy in which patients can practise in a safe environment as an example.

Currently, PostNord is only focusing on employee training in the metaverse, while other corporate giants are going all-in.
