As business applications for augmented reality technology continue to emerge, Zurich Insurance provided one example with a recently launched coaching program for management. While many businesses have been noted as using virtual reality technology for training purposes, augmented reality for the most part has lent itself to entertainment and in-field military gear.

The Zurich Insurance augmented reality application is a large-scale initiative from the brand that will see 10,000 employees in 170 countries trained on what it deems are the skills needed by its next generation of managers. The augmented reality app will help improve managers' coaching, people management and project management skills in a manner that is self-directed. The Zurich Insurance program is app-based but likely to be run in a classroom-like setting.
