Team building can be a great way to bring together the people in your business, organisation or recreation group in order to encourage unity, enhance communication, build trust and improve employee motivation. Escape rooms are a great way to facilitate this bonding exercise. Here are a few reasons why team building is important for you to consider for your organisation:
- Helps Introduce New Employees
For organisations, especially large ones, it can often be difficult to create a space where new employees can get to know other people in the organisation and build relationships. Team building exercises allow people to learn more about each other in a fun, different and exciting way. Escape rooms can help new employees transition better into their new jobs as they begin to know more about their colleagues and the culture of the organisation in a tense but controlled and exciting situation.
- Boosts Morale
Stepping outside of the office for a day benefits your employees immensely. It’s important that staff are able to get away from the desk and participate in something fun and engaging outside of work. Completing an activity such as an escape room helps challenge employees in a new way, helping them to gain more confidence in critical thinking and decision-making skills, helping boost the overall morale of the organisation.
- Creates Healthy Competition
Competition between departments or teams within an organisation can be productive and helpful for your team. Creating healthy competition allows for employees to get involved and enthusiastic about participating in their team. It helps employees to channel their competitiveness into these activities, creating a sense of pride for their team, especially when bragging rights are on the line. Escape rooms help facilitate this competitiveness through the challenge of being the most logical and critical thinkers and fastest to escape the room in the organisation.
- Encourages Communication
One of the most important aspects of a team is the ability to communicate effectively and clearly. Team building activities, such as escape rooms, help to encourage this communication through the sharing of ideas as your team works through the clues. This new communication can be brought into your workplace with staff members being able to get along better with each other through the relationships they established in the escape room.
These are just a few of the many reasons why team building is important for your organisation. Call or contact us today to find out more about booking an escape room for your next team building activity.
