If you’ve heard of escape games mentioned in the same breath as team work, you may be wondering what’s the connection and why should you care? However, if you run a company and hire a lot of staff, then you’ll be interested in a harmonious and productive work environment and escape games can help with that, but how?
Escape games are a fantastic team building exercises, and this is the main reason why companies such as yourself use them to help build a strong team. So how do escape games work?
Solve the puzzles escape, within the hour
Escape games consist of a team of people being locked in a room for 60 minutes where they must find some cryptic clues and puzzles, then work them out and use them to find a way out of the room. The rooms are all themed differently, and you choose which one you most want to use.
What’s great about the escape game is that while your team are locked in there you must all communicate with each other in order to get out, thus encouraging communication skills. This will also help to break the ice and help new members of the team to bond with their fellow team mates.
Who works best as part of a team?
There may be some of them that believe themselves to be individuals rather than team players however this activity makes each individual reliant on their co-workers in order to be successful. This may not be what you’re looking for, although using your initiative is always welcome, you want people who can work together to get the same results. So, this is an ideal opportunity to see which of your team are able to work together well as a team.
