Explore what's possible with hybrid working

Transforming workplace learning in a hybrid world

Does immersive learning really work? Can it be an ‘expert in the room’ that allows your employees to train remotely and efficiently? And how’s it all possible? John Vickery takes us through it all. Plus, he shows us how enhanced connectivity, paired with technology from our partner Microsoft, is helping to increase learning capabilities with a new ‘smart glasses’ system. 

What steps can you take?

Dr Nicola Millard walks us through the steps to take to make hybrid working a reality for your business. From rethinking the office space, to the skills needed for hybrid workers. And so much more. There’s a lot to think about in the hybrid universe, so why not use Dr Millard’s whitepaper as a checklist?
