Why an Escape Room is the Perfect Team Building Activity for Your Employees!

It’s a good idea for employees in any organization to learn how to work together, whether they work in the same department or an entirely different one. So, what are some of the ways to do that? Sure, you can throw them in meetings to discuss projects and ideas, but it’s even better when they can meet outside of the workplace, and have fun in the process!

At Xscape the Room – Media, PA, we offer four real-life adventure escape rooms in Delaware County, PA, as well as surrounding areas. Here’s why an escape room is the perfect team building activity for your employees!


You’ll Have a Common Goal

With escape rooms, everyone has a common goal – to solve the room’s mystery and escape. With less than one hour to complete this goal, everyone must work together to solve the puzzles and move on to the next clue. It’s best when everyone participates and offers their own unique perspective to conquer the challenges.


They Allow Managers to Assess Team Members

Team building through escape rooms allows managers to assess members of their team to see how they deal with conflict. This is valuable for a couple of reasons. First, it helps the department heads get to know their team members outside of an office setting by allowing them to see their strengths and weaknesses when it comes to problem-solving. Second, it helps the department heads determine which members they should watch more closely.


They Let Personalities Shine

Discussing spreadsheets in the office isn’t the best way to get to know someone. However, planning to escape from an Artist’s Sanctum before it’s too late can let anyone’s personality shine. Get to know your team members and watch them get to know each other while practicing work-related skills and having fun in the process.

Choose from a variety of fun escape rooms here at Xscape the Room! We currently offer Motherboard, The Classroom, The Speakeasy, and The Sanctum. We also offer escape room events to those in Chester County, PA, and other local areas.
