Considering the hybrid work arrangements that are here to stay, our brand new online experience for remote teams is an excellent way to energise and motivate your team, provide a challenge and some fun and get the wheels humming!
This online team building activity is specifically designed to be played 100% remotely. It replicates the dynamics and fun of our real-life city-based Urban Quests.
All tasks are based on problem solving and logical thinking. Teamwork would be the key to every single challenge. The teams of 4-5 progress through the game’s stages following the prompts on the screens of their devices for the average duration of 1.5 to 2 hours. Rather than physical activities, we have great online challenges that take advantage of players’ online skills and general knowledge.
Our recommended communication app for remote teams during the event is Zoom. Team members then also interact with our gaming platform on their devices to receive the challenges and log their responses throughout the game.
Hit that button and simply let us know your preferred date and time.
After your booking has been confirmed, all you need to do is invite your team and get them ready in front of their screens before the chosen start time.
Our hosts will take it from there and will run a pre-start briefing and
post-event scores announcement to make it a memorable experience for all.
How does Urban Quest virtual team building activities work?
You and your team of 4-5 colleagues or friends race against the clock and other groups to complete the mission, that consists of various problem-solving activities, the quickest. Together these challenges form a cohesive narrative that guides players through from task to task and completely immerses them into action. Utilising our technology-based gaming platform which has been perfected through in-person play over years, teams scour the internet and the virtual world while communicating with each other online and working together to finish first!
Why is virtual team building important?
While we can still be productive working remotely there’s no doubt that being apart from workmates will deeply affect workplace morale. Sometimes it just isn’t possible to get everyone physically together in the same room. This is where virtual team building steps in and brings people together.
Can you conduct the online team building activity using Zoom?
Yes! We use Zoom for all communication throughout the event. Our best hosts meet groups in the main chatroom for the opening brief and any company announcements, split into break-out rooms for the game itself and meet back in the main chat to announce the winners and hang out after the game.
How is Urban Quest different from other virtual team building events?
It’s not easy bringing people together when they’re so far apart. Most online team building activities currently on display tend to rely on singing karaoke or childish minute-to-win-it style games at best. Every single Urban Quest task is based on problem-solving and logical thinking. The entire experience is specifically structured to foster communication and lateral thinking, and the competitive and dynamic atmosphere of the race naturally creates a bonding experience for the participants.
