Edstutia offers modular onboarding options ranging from self-paced simulations to immersive training to live instructor-led sessions using VR.

Through XR, onboarding your new hires can be done at a fraction of the time and cost spent in traditional onboarding. Read on to discover how you can prepare for the future of onboarding, and make your organization meta ready.


Information overload, communication black holes, lacking a sense of belonging and organizational culture. These are some common challenges when onboarding new hires, especially in fragmented workplaces. With many organizations embracing a hybrid working model, getting the onboarding experience right is critical for employee productivity, engagement, and retention.


Enter VR-enhanced onboarding designed by Edstutia where new hires learn and practice company standards and job duties with clearly defined, measurable success metrics. A digital portfolio captures specific learning outcomes and enables 360-degree feedback.

The video you see is of employees leveraging the Edstutia onboarding platform and digital portfolio to access information about their new organization in a consistent, user-friendly way as a cohort or individually, and experience a sense of community and belonging. 

At Edstutia, we understand how critical it is to deliver a 21st century onboarding experience for new hires. Engaging employees with customized content in an affordable, convenient format provides a win-win solution. Onboarding should not be a one and done experience, so we develop programs that keep new employees connected over time to not only reinforce the expectations of their roles and optimize productivity, but also to reinforce your company culture and values – regardless of where they are located. Assimilating employees into your organization takes time. Set them up for success with a holistic, human-centric onboarding experience that enables them to feel connected and valued in a whole new dimension in VR.

Use Case Example

Let’s run you through a use case scenario of VR-enhanced onboarding.

A large tech company solicited a proposal for creating a customized onboarding lab within the Edstutia VR campus. We designed a platform for accessing VR-enhanced onboarding experiences where new hires would enter through their unique log-in IDs and passwords. A few of the onboarding experiences we suggested included 360 degree immersive videos of the company’s physical assets, going through security and compliance training with VR simulations, navigating and setting up their VR office spaces, participating in cohort-based team building activities, and understanding the organizational culture through a town hall meeting in an amphitheater followed by networking opportunities with senior management.

The results of VR-enhanced onboarding show that it creates a welcome break or a valuable enhancement for new hires who report greater engagement and satisfaction with the onboarding experience. Companies report higher productivity and compliance at a fraction of the cost of traditional onboarding.


“Onboarding is a key moment that matters for an employee. Joining a new role or company is an intense phase of learning and discovery. The past few years have been particularly challenging for new joiners, as they had virtually no opportunity to meet their new colleagues. This is where VR can play a key role. By creating an experience significantly more memorable than a Zoom or Microsoft Teams call, VR enables new colleagues to meet in a virtual environment and start building first ties rapidly. VR offers an immersive experience which can be transformational in ways that just can't be done in 2D or even in-person formats.And while personally meeting your colleagues at some point is priceless, VR is an ideal bridge for those that can’t do so early in the process, due to remote locations, pandemic, or other limitations.”
