Why Strong Team Building is Essential:

Furthermore, strong team-building helps improve your employees’ happiness and job satisfaction. Nobody wants to work for a company where they feel they cannot cooperate well with others. If your company needs to improve team building, visit Escape Room DC/Fairfax.


Why Escape Rooms Make a Great Team Building Idea:

If you have never done an escape room, you may be hesitant to consider it for your next team building idea, and fear that it only serves the purpose of entertaining the people who participate. However, there are a lot of characteristics that make escape rooms excellent for improving team building. Escape rooms…

  • Are a unique activity: Employees are done with the tired trust-falls and team building seminars. Many common team building activities earn groans and eye-rolls from staff members, and often do very little to improve team strength and dedication. Escape rooms, however, provide a very different experience that is both fun and proven to increase teambuilding.
  • Require cooperation & communication: Your team will not make it out of an escape room on time unless they work together. Escape rooms feature a variety of puzzles that require your employees to cooperate and communicate. These skills undoubtedly transfer to the workplace, where they must work together to ensure the business can survive.
  • Promote creative, high-pressure decision making: Not only do escape room games require that your employees work together, but they encourage them to think differently than they usually would on a time limit. Your team only has 60 minutes to make it out of the room. To do so, they need to solve a variety of obscure puzzles that require them to look at things from a new perspective. After an escape room, your employees will be able to use these new decision-making and problem-solving skills for anything they face at work.
