Workplace training simulator selects London for expansion
Posted on November 27, 2020 by Alistair Hardaker
Simulation training provider Attensi has announced plans to grow its UK business further in 2021 to become its centre of international expansion.
The plans include growing its global workforce from 125 to well over 200 by 2022.
The company, which is led by gaming entrepreneurs Trond Aas and Anne Lise Waal, reports a 54% YoY revenue growth and now plans to grow its UK business further.
Counting Daimler Mercedes Benz, Merck, Circle K, BCG, and ASDA among its global customer base, Attensi helps organisations make changes through gamified simulation training.
It uses a mix of technology from the world of video gaming and insights from workplace psychology to train people via immersive, 3D simulations of their workplace and work processes.
These can be played on mobile devices, VR headsets, and through web browsers anywhere in the world.
Anne Lise Waal, CTO and co-CEO said: “We have taken world leading gaming technology and fused it with deep insights from human psychology and behavioural science studies to accurately mimic the real-life scenarios people face in their day-today roles.
“These can be used to lead a new joiner through anything; from how to properly serve a customer in a coffee shop to spotting safety hazards on a container ship.”
Co-CEO Trond Aas, added: “London and the UK represents our gateway to the world, it’s full of global companies. So, for us it’s a move into the global market from Norway and our next move will be into the US, where we now have a California base.
“We are securing many large corporations already in North America from our offices in London and Oslo.”
