Project Spotlight: Deloitte Employee Mobility with VR

/ about 2 months ago

Deloitte Global Employee Services team is constantly looking to improve the way the business moves people around the world. They wanted to use immersive mobility as a tool to help welcome employees relocating to different offices, and provide an immersive experience that would give employees the best idea of what living in a new city would be like.

Deloitte’s San Francisco-based team used Blend Media’s global immersive marketplace, Blend Market, to access local creators in Shanghai and create an immersive 360 video. This was accessed through a Virtual Reality headset and helped give employees an insight into everyday life in their new city.

Trenton Holland, Deloitte Tax, LLP: “We’ve had a great experience collaborating with the Blend Market team for our 360 VR content. The platform has been a fantastic tool to leverage crowdsourced footage and third-party filmmakers. As a result, we co-created highly customized content that aligns with our branding and style requirements – and at a lower cost than we could before!”
Dmitry Shklyar, Blend Market creator and Co-Founder at Eastidea Media Technologies: “My first project from Blend Market was an immersive mobility programme for Deloitte. The calibre of clients and projects on Blend Market exceeded my expectations, right from the start. I keep returning for immersive project work because the marketplace has the right balance between enabling projects and creators to meet, supporting with quote submissions and payment, and not overcomplicating things - we can just get on with creating great work.”

The Shanghai employee mobility programme followed on from a successful proof of concept project for London which was shown in headsets at its global client conference. Deloitte not only used this for workplace mobility but to onboard new employee’s, as well at recruitment drives. When used at recruitment fairs, it saw a 3X uplift of the number of applicants post-event.
