New Accenture research and client experiences indicate that investing in XR technologies and modernizing learning and development now makes sense.
94% of today’s workers say they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career development.
More than 90% of the executives responding to the Accenture Immersive Learning survey agree, saying their existing training methods need to be more effective and efficient.

The technical skills shortfall is expected to reach more than 8.5 million workers by 2029 and cost $1.2t in lost economic output in the U.S. alone.

More than half of executives expect to invest more than $1 million in XR learning initiatives in the next two years. 23% plan to invest more than $10 million.
