How to Convince the Boss to take the Company to an Escape Room
If you’re an employee, HR manager or office manager, you’re probably always on the look out for team exercises and team bonding experiences. It’s trendy now for companies to arrange regular team building activities and day out – and escape rooms are becoming one of the most popular options.
Sure, there are lots of options for team building exercises and days, but escape rooms will always be at the top the list!
Escape rooms make a great team building exercise, whilst also being fun, entertaining and educational too! Here are some reasons that may help you convince your boss to take the company to an escape room…
Believe it or not, escape rooms can be really educational – so it’s not just about having fun! When solving the puzzles and locks, you’ll actually learn lots of fun facts and tidbits you may not have known before. And part of the fun is, you’ll learn all these facts from your colleagues. It’s a lot of fun learning all the random facts your colleagues can remember!
It gets everyone involved
Escape rooms get everyone involved, and leave nobody on the sidelines. Why is this important in a business setting? It means you can really bond as a team and you can really get to know your team-mates and colleagues. Phones aren’t allowed in most escape rooms, so you won’t get anyone sat in the corner scrolling through Instagram or Facebook. Everyone in your team is a valuable participant in the escape room, so everyone gets involved.
One of the best things about escape rooms is how competitive everyone gets! This is great for teamwork and team bonding – and a bit of friendly competition is an amazing motivator and icebreaker! You can mix up departments or work-teams, and have them race against each other for the quickest time.
We know businesses are usually on a budget, and luckily, escape rooms aren’t an overly expensive option when it comes to team building and team days. They’re actually one of the more affordable options, especially for small companies or small internal management teams.
Perhaps the most important thing, is that escape rooms are really fun. This is really important when planning team days or team building activities. Why? Because fun activities keep people engaged and mean people talk and communicate more. The aim of the these team activities is to encourage people to communicate and talk to each other – and escape rooms do just that!
