Bringing People Together
There genuinely is no better challenge for a Team Building exercise than Escapology. Placing you deep into a sinister plot, the importance of working as a team may literally save your life! Well figuratively speaking of course...
And whilst some people see team building activities as a 'nice break' from work, they do have a serious purpose: and that is to develop the skills and knowledge of your staff. A great team building event at Escapology can reap a range of benefits:
Build a Team
Successful organizations are all about a team. Learning about each other’s strengths, weakness and interests whilst trying to accomplish your mission against a relentless deadline is a great way to create lasting memories and great friendships. It’s no surprise that Escapology is rated as the number one choice for so many companies wishing to build outstanding teams.
A key benefit of a properly planned team building activity is improved communication between employees. When you must achieve something and you’re racing against the clock communication is vital, whether you’re trying to escape a room or hitting a business deadline. Escapology will enable your team to get to know each other better and with a better understanding they will be able to focus on what they have in common rather than their differences.
Collaboration is about knowing who has what knowledge, trusting them and their experience and being able to get access to that person when you need it. Hunting down a killer or saving the world whilst time is running out needs some serious collaboration between your team! One of the most important benefits of a properly planned team building activity is greater collaboration between employees.
By encouraging employees to learn to work together more effectively and reduce duplication of effort your employees can work more efficiently. Effective teamwork will be vital if you wish to escape so make sure you’re not all chasing the same goal. Improving productivity is one of the most common objectives of team building activities.
By stepping into a whole new world, Escapology creates an out-of-the-ordinary team building experience that will give employees permission to use their imagination to come up with creative solutions. This will in turn send the message that creativity in the workplace, and bouncing ideas off each other, is welcome.
Team building at Escapology can be used to provide recognition to employees by highlighting the work and the behaviours that have lead to the recipient receiving the recognition. By incorporating recognition into the team building you can send a strong message to every attendee about your company values.
Escape game team building activities can help increase employee motivation in a number of ways. When a group of employees ‘escape’ (or almost escape!) it creates momentum and makes them feel good about themselves. Solving our complex puzzles will increase employees’ confidence in their, and their team’s ability. A fun and challenging adventure will also show employees that you are willing to invest in them.
