As an employer or manager, we are always looking for ways to motivate our staff and to make them better employees and people. We struggle to come up with ideas how to stimulate their minds and bring some fun back into the job. We understand how things can get monotonous in the day to day grind that is the office and so we look for influence anywhere we can see it. The latest thing now is escape rooms and as well as being a lot of fun to do together, this pastime teaches us a lot about the workplace and about the team.
There are some local escape rooms in Leeds that offer a welcome break from the office, but also create other benefits for the work force. Here are just some of those benefits.
- The activities in these escape rooms encourage people to work together as a team and this is something that we encourage in the management field. Anything that gets everyone together, thinking as one group for the betterment of the group is ideal.
- In these activities you need to communicate with your team members and this is great practice when communication is key to success in the working environment.
- You also need to listen to the advice and the opinions of the other members and discuss with them the ways how everyone can escape from the room.
- Each team is given puzzles to solve and this helps greatly with your critical thinking and your out of the box thinking.
Escape rooms provide a great opportunity to work together as a team, whether with your fellow workers or with friends and family.
