Revolutionize Training in the Fast Food Industry with Virtual Reality

The restaurant industry is facing many challenges right now: an important increase in food cost, constant rises of the minimum wage, a difficulty to find people and at the same time, a staff turnover rate of above 75% which means a difficulty to keep employees and a constant demand for training.

The struggle is real. Thanks to technological advancements, virtual reality is now easily accessible. VR brings the solution to this struggle. Here’s why:

1. Autonomous Learning

No more shadowing training technique which require 2 person to do the job of one. Virtual reality offer an easy, accessible training. The worker in training follows the instructions, demonstrations and advices in the game, learning first how to interact in this virtual world, then learning the specific procedures of the job. Virtual reality enables workers to train and retrain without requiring any time investment from their colleagues and supervisors.

2. Standardized Training

VR training provides consistent training for every single new employee. Training is no longer based one on one training and word of mouth which, as we know, changes from one time to another. With VR, we can assert every employee will receive the same information.

3. Faster Learning Process

Total training time have been reduced by over 50% with virtual reality. Employees learn by doing rather than watching. This type of training is hand-on and much more effective. People can practice the procedures as many times as they want. Any possibility of distraction is eliminated with VR as players cannot talk to their friends or look at their phone. Being totally immerged in the learning process, information retention is much higher and faster.

4. Stress Free Environment

You usually step outside of you comfort zone on your first day at a new job, especially when you need to develop new skills. Employees in the quick service restaurant industry were usually thrown on the service line, trying to learn on the spot with their trainee and sometimes even the clients watching them. That wasn’t the most enjoyable and rewarding experience.
