XR for HR: Immersive Media for Workforce Development

Overview:  Extended Reality (XR) is a diverse set of technologies encompassing Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), and 360-degree immersive media. Although they are not yet widely adopted, organizations embracing these technologies are beginning to see profound impacts in how they recruit, equip, and train their employees. In this session, attendees will hear about some inspiring use cases for immersive technology in HR, learn about software and hardware tools that can be readily adapted to their environments, and be introduced to CareerViewXR, a locally produced immersive media career exploration platform that is quickly gaining national attention.

Learning Objectives:
  • Ability to explain the difference between XR, VR, AR, MR, and 360-degree media
  • Familiarity with industry standard hardware and software for both creating and consuming immersive media
  • Identify several opportunities at their organization to explore various XR technologies for training, recruiting, and as on-the-job tools
  • Learn about the CareerViewXR initiative and opportunities to become involved

Career exploration, work-based learning and talent development, oh my!  Connecting your company with future talent across the region.

  • Understand how options available to you in Compass, including work-based learning, career profiles, and events can drive interest in your organization with the raw talent you’re looking for.
  • Identify best practices in connecting with students, including best practices in career fairs, site visits, work-based learning, career awareness, job shadows, etc.
  • Learn how to work with schools, career advisors, and teachers to make sure students are learning the things you need them to know for their future career.
