Icebreakers and team-building exercises need to be exciting to engage your staff. Can you think of a better way to bond as a team than to lock yourself in an escape room together for an hour?
Escape room experiences are played in teams, either online or face-to-face. Several companies offer corporate escape room experiences that can help you take your next team-building exercise offsite. Many escape room companies can make it a full afternoon event by assisting you with coordinating food, decorations, and other details to impress your employees or coworkers.
Here at Lift Lock Escape in Peterborough, we offer high-value team-building experiences for corporate entertainment needs, team events, and private functions.
Escape rooms can be a great way to shake up your traditional icebreaker experience. It can also be a great way to show some of your clients or remote employees the corporate culture at your workplace. A great corporate escape room experience can have a lasting effect in your workplace and a beneficial impact on team morale!
Let’s check out some of the benefits of a corporate escape room experience.
True Team-Building Experience
Corporate escape room experiences can help you to build key skills within your team, such as communication, decision-making, problem-solving, and general teamwork. Escape rooms can also be a good way to learn new skills about teammates that may not make themselves known in a traditional office space. It can be fun to see how people’s competitive attitudes and unique excitement around games emerge in an activity outside of the office.
Out of Office Excitement
Take your team-building exercise out of the office! Sometimes, when you leave the traditional office setting, you can see some unique qualities and personality traits about others that they wouldn’t share in the office. Getting beyond the office walls can also break down barriers of traditional “titles” or intimidation factors around managers versus employees. In an escape room, you’re all on the same level and all of your opinions are valid and should be heard!
Escape rooms can be a great way to analyze how teams work under pressure (and handle potential conflict). The environment is low-stakes because it doesn't matter if you don’t make it out of the room. However, it could be a good learning experience for the team to understand who works well under pressure and who needs some extra communication or processing time. Learn more about how you and others on your team navigate challenges and adversity in a high-stakes atmosphere! Most team members engage in on-the-spot decisions and can compare their ability to make observations to their coworkers. Understanding how the entirety of your team works under pressure (with a time-sensitive deadline) can be great for a manager to adjust their strategy in the workplace as well during times of adversity.
Boost Team Morale
Treating you and your team to a morning or afternoon out of the office can be exactly what you need to beat the “routine blues”. If you’re going through a rough time at work or just finished a seriously stressful period of work – maybe it’s time to reward each other with a few hours away. Boost overall team morale with a corporate escape room experience.
