Are you looking to strengthen your team’s relationships and collaborative working process with a fun activity? Well look no further! Virtual Reality (VR) is a great opportunity for employees to engage in an immersive experience while building stronger working connections. In addition, VR also helps to focus on team success skills such as communication, teamwork and problem-solving. Wherever your employees may be stationed—in-person, hybrid, or remote—everyone can participate while using this interactive piece of technology!
Examples of Virtual Reality Team Building Exercises
VR offers a variety of exercise activities that touches on everyone’s interests. Here are a few examples to engage your employees:
- Pictionary – A charades-inspired drawing and guessing game with time limits.
- Scavenger Hunts – Race against the clock as teams search for items scattered around a virtual world.
- Escape Rooms – Solve puzzles with different levels of complexity to unlock the key to escape the room.
- Employee Training Courses – Team members can work together to learn new skills necessary to complete their roles.
VR is a cost-effective way to strengthen your team’s internal core! As an alternative to spending costs on transportation, accommodation and other expenses on traditional team-building events, you can bring this technology right to your office or off-site location.
But does VR really help with team building? According to a 2021 PwC article, VR learners are 275% more confident to apply skills learned after training and are 3.75x more emotionally connected to content learned from VR.
