By using virtual reality, the company hopes to make it easier for employees to empathize with customers, Adam Schouela, vice president at Fidelity Labs, said in an interview.
While virtual reality has been used for decades for training programs in other sectors, Fidelity said it is the first company in financial services to use the technology for that purpose.
The Fidelity prototype, which was built on the Google VR headset, simulates a scenario in which the customer representative is at a desk in the company's call centre in New Hampshire. The representative is prompted to handle a call from a distressed client who needs to withdraw money from her account.
