According toNASDAQ OMX (2016)apart from on-road training various other innovative
delivery technique training programs like simulations and video game based training is
offered to drivers at UPS to make program delivery more engaging and interesting for
participants. This is because of fact that most of UPS delivery drivers fall into millennial

and hear with VR headsets that gives them possibility to identify verbally prospective risk on
road like pedestrians, parked vehicles and oncoming traffic (Conková 2013).These VR
training sessions simulate hyper real road view that impresses even young participants whose
