5 ways an escape room can improve your bonding experience

29 Aug 2022

Escape rooms continue to grow in popularity both as cultural experiences and as a teambuilding method. But why? What is it about escape rooms that results in stronger teamwork? 

1. SELF-CONFIDENCE IS BUILT

As you solve the many intricate tasks, each player will begin to trust their own ability to think outside the box, notice small things, communicate, and have a voice and purpose for the team.

2. SHARED AHA MOMENTS

When we humans solve a task, puzzle or answer a question correctly, endorphins are released in our body, giving us the so-called aha experience. Endorphin is the substance that, among other things, makes us smile and feel good. In addition, the sense of community and belonging is strengthened when, as a group, you get The 'aha' experience together.

3. CONTRIBUTES TO AN INCREASED SENSE OF WORTH

All players in an escape room are needed to complete the task as quickly as possible. We all think differently, which comes in handy in an escape room where each mindset can be used at different times. What is obvious to one person might be a city in Russia to another. It's not one specific set of skills that will be helpful in an escape room, but the combination of all the different skills represented in a team. This also means that each person is valuable in the task of escaping an escape room.

4. A COMMON GOAL

A number of tasks in an escape room can only be solved collaboratively, for example, by one player pressing a button while another turns a key. Working together to solve a task and having a common goal is very much a reflection of how a team also works in the workplace. While daily reports and budgets may have been replaced by puzzles and codes, the atmosphere that comes alive during an escape room session will certainly benefit your team spirit in the office. It's where "I" becomes "we".

5. JOINT ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE OF WORKING HOURS RESULT IN MORE EFFICIENT EMPLOYEES

A study from Teglkamp & Co shows that employee dissatisfaction costs the company on the bottom line. Whereas happy employees who thrive are more hardworking. Other theories and studies also suggest that if we have a good relationship with the people we work with, we perform at our best at work. And what better way to build relationships than to escape a mad scientist's basement before time runs out?

Not only will you and your team get a good laugh, chill, or brain teaser out of an escape room session, but it will also benefit employee efficiency and the company's bottom line in the long run.
