So what is the secret to the company’s success? Consistent use of virtual reality! The company has its own campus with numerous meeting and conference rooms and auditoria. However, all of these are purely virtual: Each employee therefore uses a computer to attend meetings and seminars in the virtual world of eXp Realty by means of an avatar. For Scott Petronis, Chief Technology Officer of eXp Realty, and Glenn Sanford, its founder and CEO, the digital working world is the company’s most important growth engine. The virtualization of the business premises brought further advantages in addition to the enormous rental savings. Now the company can hire anybody without having to consider their proximity to corporate headquarters; the only prerequisite is Internet access. What is more, the company has an excellent carbon footprint because the 16,000 employees no longer need to commute to the office.
