But now, in the pandemic era, businesses see potential in the metaverse.

The consultancy Accenture made headlines this fall by ordering 60,000 Oculus headsets to onboard and train new workers. There’s new interest in remote workplaces, said Andy Challenger, senior vice president of the HR consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
