Here’s an innovative idea – PepsiCo is rolling out a project, after a successful prototype, to do warehouse training in Minecraft. Why? After too much fatigue in remote training, an employee’s 11-year old son inspired the idea. The company tried it, and after that successful prototype, is rolling it out to 300 employees in 2021. The program simulates a 3D warehouse. Trainees learn to reduce waste and inefficiency in a distribution company.
All within the game.
Why do we care?
Here’s a case study example we can all embrace. Think different is cliché… but for a reason. This is my pushback to those who say it will all bounce back. This is a time to rethink ideas, not just assume it all goes back. Those who rethink win. And those who don’t, will languish. In Zoom.
