Healthy interpersonal relationships are vital for maintaining a great office atmosphere and corporate culture. When employees feel appreciated and valued by their colleagues, it works wonders on workplace productivity, and the positive impacts just ripple out from there.
Escape rooms have many unique benefits for team building in the corporate context, including:
Being purpose-driven and facilitating bonding
By their very nature, escape rooms have an end goal that the team must work together to achieve. By giving participants a common purpose, a sense of unity draws people together, boosting the relationships between your team members. We always say that best corporate team building activities are ones that actively do build teams!
Creating leadership opportunities
Escape rooms open up the opportunity for many office employees to step beyond the usual boundaries of their role and become team leaders. In order to escape the room, out-of-the-box thinking and active participation are more than necessary. Beyond creating leadership opportunities, escape rooms for team building inspire natural collaboration across departments who may not otherwise have opportunities to work together in their formal work settings.
Eliciting a sense of achievement
Beating an escape room is no easy feat, and any team that manages to escape is sure to experience a great sense of accomplishment. Each team member will hold their fellow winners in high esteem, appreciating their combined creative thinking, effective communication skills, and all the other positive collaborative attributes that allowed them to beat the room and achieve their shared goals!

Escape rooms place the ultimate importance on working together to achieve a shared goal through unconventional thinking and communication. Here at Escape Room Melbourne, we believe that these are vital attributes of any highly-effective corporate team.
Even after the day is done, the escape room experience will continue to be a talking point in the office for months to come. Your team will remember forming strong bonds and banding together to overcome their shared challenge.
