Corporate team building often conjures up the vision of 12 soaked to the skin, anorak wearing employees, huddled together trying to build rafts in the middle of nowhere. Not many people look forward to such “adventures” and many attend just because they feel obliged to, or for the promise of a pint or two in the pub afterwards.
However, there is something to gain by getting your team involved in something together outside of the workplace environment, helping your team to work better together can have a great effect on your bottom line. Employees who work well together are more likely to enjoy their job, making for a more productive workplace.
WHAT TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES ARE BEST?
You need something your employees will really enjoy, drawing on the strengths of everyone in the team and can go a long way towards building great working relationships.
It is also a good idea to choose something that is not dependent on all of your employees having the same level of physical fitness. Many corporate team building exercises involve an awful lot of physical ability, and this is why some people can’t participate.
You need something exciting, dynamic and with a bit of adrenaline thrown in for good measure. You need Live Escape Games.
Escape Blackpool is a new innovative and fun team building concept. You are locked in a room and have to solve mental puzzles to get out. It teaches interaction and expression under adrenaline pumping circumstances.
HOW DO LIVE ESCAPE GAMES WORK?
Picture the scene, your teams are put into one of the Live Escape rooms, the door closes and the clock starts. Your team needs to solve mysteries, puzzles and riddles in order to escape within the allotted time limit (60 minutes).
You’ll find the mental stimulation benefits the whole team. Observational skills will also come into play, every member of your team will have to contribute to the escape challenge.
Mentally stimulated, your team will thrive on the challenge, and this will spill over into the workplace long beyond leaving the room. Live Escape is one of the most cost effective professional team building activities you can utilise.
