Virtual reality glasses are being tested in several Biedronka stores across Warsaw. VR goggles teach employees how to bake bread.
Biedronka stores conduct innovative training for employees using glasses with virtual reality. VR goggles are used to run a baking course.
We have started VR tests because it is a convenient tool that realistically teaches skills that are difficult or expensive in traditional learning. At this point, we implement the solution with one of the most demanding processes in the store – baking bread. The advantage of VR goggles is that they allow multiple exercises, but also make mistakes in a safe environment. They are also an attractive element of introducing new people to work says Katarzyna Kozyra
VR goggles are also being tested in stores in Bydgoszcz, Gliwice, Łódź, Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Zielona Góra and Koszalin. The network also implements chatbot, thanks to which employees will be able to easily and quickly get answers to questions about the company’s operation.
What is the baking course for VR bread?
The training takes place using VR glasses and two joysticks. The trained person moves to the virtual store, where, with the help of remote controls and hand movements, he can lift cartons, grab bread tongs, open and close doors, sign documents, and even put on protective clothing. To sum up – he can do all the activities that shop employees do on a daily basis “in real life”.
