Cigna wants to create a more engaging and memorable onboarding experience for new hires and leverage Augmented Reality (AR) to do this.
Onboarding a new hire is a critical part of their success, and the success of the organization. But getting it right is a challenge for HR professionals. New starters tend to be directed to employee handbooks or intranets for information, which aren’t very engaging or personal.
As new technologies become more integrated into our working lives there’s an opportunity for HR professionals to approach their onboarding in a new way. That’s where AR comes in.
AR creates engaging and highly visual content. Augmented Reality experiences also have a remarkable impact on our ability to learn and retain information. AR’s impact on information retention makes it really effective for onboarding programs when a new employee has to quickly absorb and retain large amounts of information in a short period of time. The quicker an employee can learn, the faster they get up to speed and add value.
Augmented reality is also a powerful tool for communicating your brand, mission, and values. An inspiring piece of AR content can help employees connect with your brand and understand your vision. This is a particularly innovative way of achieving culture-boarding -- a facet of onboarding that’s becoming increasingly important to get right.
