Research shows that roughly 71% of workers are not engaged in their work.
If your employees are struggling with low engagement levels, a team-building activity can help turn things around. One such team-building activity you might want to consider is an escape room outing, as the activity is cheap, and tends to involve little travel.
Here are some tips that’ll teach you how you can book a fantastic escape room trip for your employees. If you use these tips, you should be able to improve the overall engagement levels within your company.
1. Consider the Number of People Going
When booking an escape room, it’s important to note that only a specific number of people can use an escape room at a given time.
Now, in some cases, an escape room company may have multiple ‘rooms’ that people can use at the same time. However, if this isn’t the case, you may need to book different timeslots, right next to each other.
If you’re going to go down this route, note that this can extend the duration of the entire activity.
This is because you might have to wait until one group has finished their ‘turn’ before another group can get started. If each ‘turn’ takes around an hour, and you have 3-4 groups, this can clearly add up.
If this is the case, you might want to plan a followup activity for the people that finish their escape room activity before other people.
2. Explain the Expenses
When informing people about the trip, you might also want to think about clearly describing the expenses that are involved.
This is because some people might avoid going, simply because they think the event is going to cost them a lot of money.
However, if you mention that you’re going to cover the major expenses associated with the trip, you may find that more people are willing to go.
3. Find an Exciting Escape Room
Escape rooms have been around for years, and many people in your office might’ve already visited one. It’s because of this that you might find it difficult to generate some interest in an escape room trip.
Luckily, you can overcome this issue by looking for an escape room that makes use of the latest technology. For instance, places such as The Escape Artist, tend to provide an escape room experience that is a notch above the traditional offering.
If you can find something like this in your local area, it might be easier to convince employees that this trip is a good idea.
Time to Book an Escape Room Outing?
This post has explored how you can book an amazing escape room outing for your employees.
When booking this trip, you might want to mention to the escape room company that you’re planning a work-related event. This is because some companies offer a discount to those that are booking escape rooms for certain purposes.
It might take a bit of convincing to get your employees on board with the idea of visiting an escape room. However, if you get your employees to go on just one trip, it won’t be long before everyone wants to make escape room trips a regular thing.
