Escape Southend - The Benefits of Team Building Activities

We’re going to look at the benefits of team building activities today because we see a lot of corporate teams bringing their people here for a game of Escape. There’s plenty of good reasons why people come here, especially corporate teams, and we’d like to talk about them with you, so you’ll have an idea of what to expect. 

Valuable time away from the office desk.

Organising an away day may seem like a waste of time, but it rarely is. It’s a perfect opportunity to gather all your teams together and get them out and about where they can enjoy the space between themselves and their office desk and where you get to identify who’s good at what. Yes, it sounds a little sneaky but team building activities are great for everyone, for you the team leader, and for your team themselves. 

They may think they know each other but they probably don’t.

They possibly may not know each other that well despite having worked together for several months or years. This is an ideal opportunity to break the ice and get to know each other, form new bonds that may serve them well in the future should they work on a project together. 

Identify hidden talents in your team.

It’s also an ideal opportunity to identify hidden talents so you can allocate any important roles to those individuals you think are best for the role. By getting them to take part in a team building exercise you’re going to be in a prime position to see who’s good at problem-solving, who has the best analytical and logical thinking, who shines at communicating and delegating what’s needed, who stays calm under pressure and who panics. 


Team-working is particularly important in any job, where people know how to get the best out of each other, who knows how to support and encourage each other and whether everyone’s able to demonstrate key skills in these areas. Are you a lone competitor or a you a team player, happy to cheer others or are you all about yourself?
