The metaverse is rapidly emerging as a new frontier for enterprise companies. We’ve already seen companies like DXC host a global sales kick-off in Virbela. PwC recently hosted a web-based metaverse experience in a unique Virbela campus at Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

As these events evolve, more organizations are developing longer-term programs. These may include ongoing work activities and cross-functional collaboration on higher-level projects. The goal may be to move all operations into the metaverse one day, connecting global teams with company objectives in a scalable, always-on space with private offices and common areas for clients to visit.

If you’re in human resources, your team is in a perfect position to lead the charge into virtual worlds. With recruiting and onboarding, human resources leaders can design and execute programs with defined scope and specific, measurable goals.

And, as the metaverse continues to develop, we can expect to see even more innovative and exciting ways for companies to use virtual worlds to their advantage.

Here are some specific examples of how human resources leaders can use the metaverse for recruiting and onboarding:

  • Create a virtual job fair. Candidates can attend these job fairs from anywhere in the world and interact with company representatives in real time. This is a great way to reach a wider pool of candidates and make a positive first impression.
  • Host virtual interviews. In Virbela, candidates meet with interviewers in a virtual campus using only a desktop and Wifi, no headsets necessary. This can be a more comfortable and convenient experience for candidates, and it can also help companies assess candidates' skills and abilities in a more immersive way.
  • Provide virtual training for new hires. Refresh your onboarding programs for the metaverse. Virtual reality makes group collaboration natural, so that it feels like you’re working together in person. A variety of familiar office tools allow leaders and trainers to share presentations, review documents on web boards and send links in chat boxes.

These programs may extend the capabilities of organizations that are interested in early metaverse adoption. They allow you to grow your metaverse strengths without risking the high investments and extensive efforts of moving an entire business unit at once.

At the same time, recruiting and onboarding programs can prepare your company to do more with greater speed and agility into the future. This makes human resources uniquely qualified to carry large companies forward in the metaverse.
