SimuStar helps lenders hone judgment and decision-making skills in ways that only creatively designed immersive learning can provide. A bold claim, but one grounded in solid science.
"It's really the ultimate form of mental practice," says John Golden, president and CEO of Omega Performance. "Research has shown mental practice activates about 90 percent of the same brain circuitry used during an actual real-life task. The SimuStar simulations take mental practice to a whole new level, providing such an authentic experience that the memory retains it in the same way as real work experiences, increasing both the learning and the retention significantly."
Studies show that when the brain receives sights, sounds and experiences to give memories context, the brain finds it easier to encode. "With all of the visual stimuli provided by SimuStar's immersive learning simulations," adds Golden, "the deeper level of SimuStar revolutionizes bank training as we know it. It goes well beyond traditional training to test of a lender's skills at once, including their judgment, which is the hardest of all abilities to ascertain. Being able to replicate real-life lending situations provides the most challenging and rigorous assessment possible, but in a safe, controlled environment."
