When employees feel connected to their colleagues, they're more motivated, engaged, and productive at work. Since the holidays are a time for fun and festivities, it's the perfect chance to help employees build trust and connection in an exciting and creative way.
Still, it can be challenging for businesses to know where to start with team building, especially during the holidays. Not everyone wants to wear an ugly sweater or take part in a Secret Santa event. You need something creative and versatile. The activity should also allow people to use their natural skills while developing new ones. The answer? Games!
Playing games at your virtual holiday parties gives your team members the chance to have a little fun and see each other in a new light while enjoying the spirit of the season.
No matter what department your employees are part of, being able to work together toward a common goal is vital. If you're looking to help your team build their problem-solving and communication skills while having a bit of adventure and a lot of laughs, a holiday-themed virtual escape room might be just what you need.
This activity works like an escape room, except it's all about your team being stuck on a holiday island alone during a New Year's Eve vacation. Each quest involves a series of puzzles your team must solve correctly to collect the clues that will lead to freedom. Your team has 60 minutes to find their way back to civilization before the ball drops. Many groups can play in separate virtual breakout rooms at one time for a little bit of friendly competition, and the host will reveal the winner in the end.
