Challenger insurer hubb announced that it is preparing for the transition to the metaverse, with the help of investments in VR devices and hybrid onboarding infrastructure

Internally, hubb uses the metaverse to establish a hybrid working environment defined by the division of time in and out of a shared virtual space.
According to the firm, this step facilitates the onboarding of new staff, by providing instant access to senior staff in a more personal and productive way than video meetings, while still allowing workers to work from home. .
In addition, hubb also interacts with a metaverse accelerator, ensuring continued metaverse tech adoption, as well as helping the company keep pace with future developments.

“Not only do we now conduct our board meetings at Horizon Workrooms, but we have already interacted with clients through this type of metaverse-enabled technology. As the first metaverse-ready insurance broker, we make sure we don’t miss out on the opportunity to put clients at their convenience-wherever they are and whatever their preferences. ”
