Headset distribution solidifies intent to remain #1 VR-first company
San Francisco, CA (April 28, 2021) – LARVOL, leading provider of data and intelligence solutions for the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, today announced their commitment to rollout virtual reality headsets to all team members in support of their Virtual Reality (VR)-first company culture. This gives all members of LARVOL’s global, remote workforce access to the company’s virtual reality office space and confirms the brand’s commitment to VR as the future of work.
“We have experienced firsthand the benefits of doing business in VR, and there’s no going back,” said CEO and Founder Bruno Larvol. “We are officially the first colony on the metaverse, and it is great to feel like we’re finally working together under one roof.”
A remote-first company since 2004, LARVOL is no stranger to the realities of a distributed work force. With teammates in 14 countries, the need to establish and grow a connected company culture is crucial to LARVOL’s success. In the past year, CEO Bruno Larvol embraced VR meetings as an opportunity to enhance the connection and collaboration for the team. Extensive testing of Oculus Quest 2 headsets and the Spatial VR office application convinced the CEO that VR gatherings present a significant improvement to meeting via video alone, better mimicking the environment of an in-person gathering.
“We found the office space we never thought we needed in VR with Spatial’s collaboration platform,” Larvol said. “We are collaborating more fully and connecting on a human level that video conferencing has never allowed. This flexibility has also allowed us to hire the best talent and give our staff the flexibility today’s workforce is looking for.”
LARVOL announced the rollout of an Oculus Quest 2 headset to every team member’s home office at an All Hands meeting held in Spatial this morning. Team members from across the globe will now be able to enjoy the immersive VR experience that makes LARVOL a pioneer in VR-first business.
