New Hires to the Holodeck: Fidelity Investments Tries Collaboration Via Virtual Reality

As coronavirus lockdowns drag on, IT leaders are feeling hard-pressed to keep collaboration fresh among their remote workforces through video chat and other digital tools.

So some are turning to virtual reality. Fidelity Investments Inc., the financial services firm, has been exploring how virtual reality could be used to build workplace relationships among new employees working remotely. In May, it shipped brand-new virtual reality headsets made by Pico Interactive Inc. to more than 140 employees in its operations division. The workers were either new to Fidelity, or had recently moved into an operations role.

The goal was to replicate some aspects of a new-employee training program that would normally have happened in person in Boston over two weeks.

“We were able to use that visceral and collaborative element of virtual reality,” said Adam Schouela, head of emerging technology at the Fidelity Center for Applied Technology, which tests and evaluates cutting-edge

Halliburton VP: Technology, collaboration will lead to economic recovery

All facets of the oil and gas industry have suffered declines amid the COVID-19 pandemic unseen in previous downturns.

But Shannon Slocum, senior vice president of global business development and marketing and member of the executive committee at Halliburton, believes the lessons learned in previous downturns, specifically the 2015-2016 downturn, have helped companies weather the storm.

“After the second quarter, we believe the rig count is stabilizing and we’re optimistic and believe we’re seeing the beginnings of a recovery,” he said during the Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association’s 2020 Summer Conference, held virtually last week.

“Nothing dramatic, but a positive start,” he said. “Our industry is not out of the woods yet – far from it. In fact, the energy sector accounts for only 2.63 percent of the Standard & Poor’s 1500, an all-time low. Something needs to change before capital comes back into our space.”
