How VR enhances remote work?

A study on VR capabilities for the work-from-home (WFH) settings found that VR:

1. Increase worker’s efficiency

By using immersive virtual workspaces, VR enhances individuals’ focus on tasks and facilitates more efficient collaboration in team meetings, resulting in improved productivity and output.

2. Reduce distractions from the physical world

VR creates separate in-home workspaces, minimising distractions and facilitating detachment from work in ways that no other technology can. The detachment allows to focus on creative and efficient collaboration with colleagues during meetings.

3. Reduce environmental impact of commute

By eliminating the need for physical travel, VR reduces commute and associated carbon emissions, contributing positively to sustainability.

The research concluded that VR holds great potential in enhancing workers’ efficiency and minimizing distractions from the physical world, while also achieving better overall performance and work-life balance for employees.
