I Experimented With Virtual Reality. Here’s What Leaders Need To Know.
The metaverse is coming.
According to Gartner, by 2026, 25% of people will spend one hour per day or more in virtual reality, and nearly one-third of businesses will offer products or services for the metaverse. Additionally, Microsoft’s Work Trend Index predicts that half of Gen Z and Millennials believe they’ll do some of their work in the metaverse in the next few years.
The technology is still in its infancy, but tech’s exponential growth rate means the world is likely just a few advances away from a snowball of VR applications.
Business leaders need to start paying attention now, tracking advancements and envisioning how the metaverse can be integrated into their organizations to improve everything from operational efficiency and culture to customer service.
