Team building that really makes a difference

Time for something new

Say the words ‘team building’ and you’ll spark dread into half the workforce, and even those who are enthused will find themselves feeling a bit daft if any clichéd trust exercises come into play. And even a company meal can feel somewhat like forced bonding.

So, what can you do that’s different? Offer your employees a team day that lets them completely escape from their usual roles and give them something that has real value – immersive volunteering.

We like to think of our events as one part escape room, two parts relationship-building, a sprinkle of bite-sized volunteering.

By engaging in a meaningful activity for charity, you’re doing more than just fulfilling your CSR requirement; you’re bringing a huge range of benefits to your employees:

01 Immersive Volunteering

Your adventure begins with a briefing from our actors about your challenge, what to look out for and who to avoid. In teams of 3-5, you will be sent clues and riddles via SMS and you must collect certain items for charity and complete challenges along the way. Game lasts around 1:30h

The team who completes the task first with the highest number of correct items wins and gets a free drink, but with a nemesis on your tail docking points for a number of things you may do, it’s harder than it sounds!

02 Have fun, Do Good

By engaging in a meaningful activity for charity, you’re doing more than just fulfilling your CSR requirement; you’re bringing a huge range of benefits to your employees. We partner with incredible charities to integrate good deeds into our children’s parties so that your little ones can have an adventure while doing good.

Past games have included the charity Mary’s Meals, gathered school supplies for a school in Malawi, also working with Glass Door Homeless Charity to help provide basic amenities.

03 Purpose

The majority of under 35s seek a sense of purpose from their job, you can give employees a sense of wellbeing from getting involved in charitable work. Job satisfaction doesn’t come from an employee’s role alone, being part of a company that shares your values is an important contributing factor.

You may be surprised just how many would welcome the opportunity to do something for charity – with 55% of under-35s wanting to volunteer more than they do.

04 Engagement

One of the biggest challenges can be encouraging more introverted team members to step forward and engage in new challenges, especially on team building days, which can fill some employees with dread.

One of the benefits of immersive volunteering is knowing that you are not just playing a game, you are helping a good cause. This underlying mission gives quieter team members a sense of responsibility that will embolden them to feel engaged with the task.

05 Benefits

The immersive and gamified aspects of our events bring about numerous other benefits:
– stimulating
– problem solving
– encourages lateral thinking
– team work
– fun
– bonding
