Develop the Next Generation in the Logistics Industry
The logistics industry is undergoing significant changes. Digitalization, talent shortages, and automation are reshaping operations. The exit of experienced professionals necessitates knowledge transfer. Rising customer expectations and sustainability concerns drive change. Integration of technology is enhancing efficiency in logistics. The industry is evolving amid societal and technological shifts.
To weather these changes, talent needs are at the top of the priority list, as providers face massive hiring and training challenges:
High Employee Turnover Rates: The logistics industry experiences an average annual employee turnover rate of around 20% to 30%. High turnover necessitates frequent recruitment and training, increasing operational costs and straining resources.
Skill Gap and Talent Shortage: According to industry reports, nearly 80% of logistics companies struggle to find employees with the required skills and qualifications. The shortage of qualified talent hampers growth and innovation, leading to the need for extensive training programs.
Technological Advancements: Approximately 60% of logistics professionals believe that keeping up with technological advancements is a significant challenge. Rapid technological changes require ongoing training and upskilling to remain competitive and efficient.
Logistics Training Outcomes Using Immersive Learning
Logistics soft skills training using immersive technology is proven to deliver better learning outcomes that other forms of training can’t compete with:
Faster to train than in the classroom
more confident to act on what they learned after training
More emotionally connected to training content than classroom learners
More focused than their e-learning peers
The logistics industry is continually evolving, requiring professionals to stay up-to-date on the latest advancements. Time to proficiency and learning in the flow of work are critical due to time constraints. Immersive learning content’s ability to teach skills faster, and with longer knowledge retention, helps leaders maximize training time and upskill as their roles change.
Logistics and supply chain training professionals must display high levels of confidence in their ability to treat their patients and create a safe environment. Practicing skills through immersive learning is proven to increase confidence when acting on learned subject matter in the field.
Professionals in the logistics industry need emotionally realistic training to prepare for the challenging situations they face on a regular basis. Immersive learning’s ability to simulate scenarios through virtual human role play helps users practice these situations in simulations that feel real and build muscle memory for when they face these situations in the real world.
a safe place to fail
Learners can practice key soft skills from the privacy of their office, home, or other setting. This gives learners a safe place to fail and practice the lesson as many times as needed, until they are confident in the material.
Better remote learning
Immersive learning allows learners to complete training at any time, anywhere. With large portions of training moved to virtual modalities, virtual role play powered by immersive technology creates more engaging, realistic, and scalable training programs than video conferencing or e-learning solutions.
Measured skills improvement
Not only is immersive learning delivering an average of more than 20% improvement for skills practiced, it also offers a more tangible way to score and measure skills over time. This helps leaders pinpoint areas for improvement and track skill progression.
