1. Workplace collaboration will never be the same again

Around the world, the metaverse will become part of daily work for an 
increasing number of employees. Instead of staring at a grid of 2-dimensional 
faces on a videoconferencing screen, colleagues will be able to choose their 
seat at a virtual table, pop out of the room for a break, and even go on a 
virtual walk with their boss.

To maximise benefits, many firms are already combining traditional video 
conferencing with immersive collaboration technologies. DXC has noticed the 
positive impact of its own private virtual world, with increased levels of 
productivity, engagement, and creativity amongst its employees.

"Metaverse experiences are helping employees to concentrate better and retain 
more information. Virtual worlds can help us get out of our videoconferencing 
routine and open the door to greater collaboration and innovation", says 
Nathalie Vancluysen, Head of Extended Reality at DXC Technology.

2. Large scale professional events will go virtual 

The metaverse is a place where thousands of avatars around the world can come 
together to interact, meet and engage. Controlled by people from the comfort of 
their chosen location, personalised 3D avatars can roam freely over an almost 
infinite space and teleport themselves from one place to another 
instantaneously. In the future, more large-scale events like conferences, expos 
and summits will take place in virtual worlds, enabling greater worldwide 
collaboration opportunities and reducing the time, resources and carbon 
footprint used when travelling.

3. Bands, DJs, sports clubs and dating will transition into the metaverse

More and more individuals and organizations from the music and sports industry 
are encouraging fans to join them from virtual seats in virtual venues, 
bringing the excitement of concerts and matches to the individual's home. 
Additionally, some dating apps like Nevermet and Flirtual are already offering 
services in the metaverse. In the next five years, consumers will be offered 
more interactive, immersive opportunities to do the things they love doing in 
the physical world – all via their digital avatar.

4. Brands will express themselves in new ways

Virtual customer experiences will become commonplace with brands looking for 
new and exciting ways to engage with their customers. Major retail brands like 
Louis Vuitton, Adidas, Gucci, Coke, and Nike, alongside car companies like 
Nissan, Toyota and Ferrari are already experimenting with virtual environments 
and augmented reality. In the next five years, DXC expects more and more brands 
to offer customers an opportunity to explore their brands, solutions and 
services in 3D - from hotels, to cities, to airports.

5. Recruitment and onboarding will be metamorphosed 

Recruiting talent is integral to the success of any business, and reaching 
talent is the first step. Over the next five years, organizations will 
increasingly turn to the metaverse to connect with candidates in engaging, 
enticing ways. The metaverse can also be good for inclusivity. Hosting 
first-round interviews in the metaverse can help recruiters identify candidates 
with the right behavioural profile rather than just the ones with the right CV 
credentials or look.

"Individuals and businesses are opening their minds to the possibility of using 
the metaverse in everyday activities", sums up Nathalie Vancluysen. "Many of 
today's young adults have grown up socialising and gaming online, so 
businesses, government organizations and brands must be able to engage them 
with products and services which feel familiar and exciting."
