Hey folks!

Welcome back to my newsletter - Metaverse911 Weekly Dose - The only guide you need to know the metaverse inside out.

This week I’ll be addressing Employee onboarding challenges for HR Leaders

Having run a recruitment company myself for 10+ yrs, I understand the onboarding and employee engagement challenges faced by #hrleaders  

Recruiters have a big job when it comes to #onboarding new employees. From the initial paperwork to the training modules, it's essential to ensure that new hires are set up for success. However, traditional onboarding methods can be tedious and time-consuming, leading to disengagement and a lack of understanding of the #companyculture,

And one of the biggest challenges that recruiters face is the lack of #engagement from new hires.

Long hours of sitting through training modules and filling out the paperwork can quickly drain their enthusiasm. This lack of engagement can ultimately lead to lower retention rates, and a decrease in productivity.

So, what's the fix?

Metaverse onboarding is a new and exciting way of introducing new hires to the company culture, values, and processes. Imagine stepping into a virtual world where you can interact with your colleagues, explore the office space, and learn about the company's mission and vision in a fun and engaging way.

But, here's the thing - you can't just jump into the process and expect everything to go smoothly. There are certain prerequisites that need to be in place to ensure a hassle-free onboarding experience.

First things first- Explore the metaverse yourself. Before you onboard anyone else, take some time to explore the metaverse yourself. Play some games, attend some events, and get a feel for what it's like to be a part of this #virtualworld. This will give you a better understanding of what your new hires will experience.

It's crucial to grasp the concept of the metaverse. Start by delving into what the metaverse is all about and how it can be leveraged for onboarding. Carry out proper research and stay updated with the latest developments in this area to get a better understanding.

To get started with metaverse onboarding, you also need to establish the aims and objectives you want to accomplish with the program. It's important to have a clear idea of what you want to achieve with your metaverse onboarding program. Do you want to build a strong sense of community? Teach specific skills? Create an immersive learning experience? Having clear goals will help you design a program that meets your needs.

Choose your platform. There are many metaverse platforms available, each with its unique features and capabilities. Research and compare different platforms to find one that aligns with your company's needs and goals.

Once you've chosen a platform, it's time to start building your team's presence in the metaverse. This could mean creating avatars for each team member, building a virtual office or workspace, and establishing a company presence in the metaverse.

Next, think about how you'll train your team on using the platform. Will you host #virtualtraining sessions? Create a detailed user guide? Encourage employees to explore and learn on their own? Figure out what approach works best for your team and make sure everyone has the resources they need to feel comfortable in the metaverse.

Interactivity is the key! Think about how you can use the metaverse to enhance collaboration and communication within your team. To make the onboarding process engaging and memorable, add interactive elements such as virtual team-building activities, icebreakers, games, and happy hours. This can help new hires retain information and feel more connected to the company.

Finally, be sure to ask for feedback from your new hires as you go along. What's working well? What could be improved? Gather feedback and adjust your program accordingly to ensure its effectiveness.

When it comes to onboarding employees in the metaverse, creating an #immersiveexperience is the way to go.

Here's how Kotak Mahindra Bank hosted an award-winning employee engagement in the Metaverse:

Kotak Mahindra Bank’s Brandon Hall Awardee metaverse experience - 'Learning-a-fair' employee engagement. Kotak flawlessly engaged 35000+ employees in the metaverse with their Learning-a-fair Metaverse. This Learning Metaverse fosters collaboration, engagement, and innovation among employees.  

GMetriXR was the perfect choice to deploy Kotak's metaverse experience. Their no-code toolkit is revolutionizing the metaverse industry by making it easy for anyone to create, manage and track their own metaverse.

GMetri’s Metaverse creation tool has shortened the implementation timelines and with vast templates, it's easier for L&D professionals or HRs to now launch the Metaverse experience without much external Agency support.

I’m convinced – Where do I begin?
