Adventist HealthCare LifeWork Strategies Partners with WILL Interactive to Bring Immersive and Experiential Training to Employers

GAITHERSBURG, Md.Adventist HealthCare LifeWork Strategies is excited to announce a partnership with WILL Interactive, the award-winning training program developer, to offer immersive and engaging training programs and a state-of-the-art training platform to employer clients. WILL Interactive provides customizable, experiential training content created with a methodology that has been shown in independent studies to improve employee attitudes and behaviors, and workplace cultures.

Through branching storyline interactive movies, employees choose their learning experience for topics such as diversity, unconscious bias, harassment, sexual harassment, abusive conduct, working remotely, and emotional life skills. Employees make decisions that alter the storyline and experience different outcomes based on their choices. They get to "see themselves as others see them" and to "experience events from multiple perspectives." By simultaneously engaging users both logically and emotionally this unique approach results in long term retention and rapid recall.

In WILL Interactive training programs, the learner assumes the roles of characters in interactive movies and make decisions that change the storyline and outcome. "WILL's Choose Your Own Journey™ training methodology improves employee performance and organizational culture. Through this partnership with LifeWork Strategies, we envision more organizations getting access to training that helps lead to more respectful and inclusive workplaces,” said Sharon Sloane, CEO of WILL Interactive.

After completing a WILL Interactive training journey, employees are more likely to remember situations and make better decisions. Nicole D’Uva, Associate Vice President of Employee Health and LifeWork Strategies, explains “employees are spending more and more time in front of a screen. By creating a memorable training experience, we’re helping to engage them to produce measurable outcomes that improve the workplace culture.”
