Looking to boost morale for your employees or strengthen the relationships between coworkers? Your workplace will be successful and productive when your employees feel empowered as a team, and no better way to do that than to bond everyone over a common problem (escaping) that can only be solved by their arsenal of creative minds! Here’s the top 5 reasons choosing an escape room with us is the right move for you next team building event:
1. Have fun! …Out with the old!
Everyone’s done the questionnaires and the get-to-know-you games, the team sports days and the workplace socials. They’re too familiar and, at this point, if you want to see strong results, you’re going to need something fresh and exciting.
In an escape room, coworkers get to act as a team that celebrates each other’s creative strengths, and at each step, that teamwork gets rewarded when successful. What could translate better into your workplace?
2. Change of Scenery
It’s time to get up and get OUT of the office! Or it’s time to bring the team together from working at home! Either way, your team is going to find more meaningful relationships when they can see their coworkers outside the workplace.
In an escape room, they’ll get to stretch their legs without facing the elements outdoors, and feast their eyes on rooms unlike anything they’ve seen before. From the colorful wonderland in Sugar Rush to the spooky survival adventures in Cabin 13, Georgie, or Zombie Rising— facing the unexpected will get blood pumping and creativity flowing!
3. Improving Time Management
Deadlines are a part of life, and are likely a part of your workplace. In your escape room, your team will have 60 minutes to find their way out. They’ll have to think creatively and problem solve together in order to beat the clock. Your team will naturally learn that the best way to tackle the challenge is to be resourceful and divide-n-conquer.
4. Natural Leadership
Speaking of divide-n-conquer, as your team delegates tasks to solve their clues, natural leaders will start to emerge in the group as each member’s strengths get put on display. These teamwork activities will give official leaders the opportunity to practice their skills, or give employers some insights into the employees that may surprise them.
5. Accommodate small and large team sizes!
We offer 4 different escape room theme options, from whimsical to spooky so there’s something for everyone! With our 4 games, we can accommodate small and large group sizes to play at the same time!
