The unique power of immersive environments is this feeling of presence, the feeling you’re really there with another person, or in another place. Seeing things in context immediately makes us understand more. Seeing is believing, and VR makes you live the experience, drastically reducing cognitive loads.

Structuring the program efficiently is of utmost importance to make the onboarding program effective. The modules have to be designed to prove the capacity of the XR Technology to enhance engagement, retention and recall for all your new joinees joining the organization.

Few Modules to consider when creating an Employee Onboarding Program

A Welcome Area

A virtual welcome area can be created where the HR Head or someone from the Top Management can  welcome the new joinees and congratulate them.


A 360°  Virtual Tour of the office space with / without a Trainer led XR experience. This will show the users the beautiful office space without the HR having to take the new joinees for a physical tour.

About the Company

To make the experience both engaging and informative, we can create a story around the rich history of the company along with timestamps, client list, business verticals, vision and mission, etc. This can be done along with some interactive elements like Videos, Voice notes, Management speech, Images, Quiz, A short game etc.

Regulations & Policies

Understanding the nature of business and the strict policies that needs to be adhered to,  GMetri can help you create XR modules which would give the new joinees all the information and knowledge regarding the Regulation and Policies of the company. This will be more Engaging for the users as the modules can be gamified and this would automatically create a lot more Retention than other modes like PPTs or videos.

Compliance Training

Compliance Training is something very important for any organization and is usually neglected by the employees. The best possible way to get employees to go through the compliance training is to make them gamified and interactive with a quiz and questionnaire integrated with several reward mechanisms and leaderboard. This approach makes the employees spend quality time in understanding the modules and retain them.

Interactive XR Games

In all the above modules or experiences, we can have short interactive games which will be directly related to the context. These games can be a part of assessment as well which would indicate the level of understanding of the user. For example, a simple Treasure Hunt Game where there are 5 coins to be found in the office tour. If you find all 5, you will earn a Badge.
