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.
Considering the current #WorkFromHome routine, 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 remote team building activity is specifically designed to be played 100% online. 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 4-6 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.
The tough times that we are going through has made us question the way the world works. A majority of us are working from home, leading to a situation where the camaraderie of being together in an office is missed. All said and done, a team stays stronger, when they are in constant contact with each other, but in the current scenario, it might prove to be tough.
Welcome to the world of Urban Quest – where you can help your team reconnect, irrespective of their geographical location, boost team morale and effectively engage remote teams. A range of online challenges and sessions that can be customized based on the team size, these activities are designed to motivate, energise your team, while increasing communication and allowing them to socialise, albeit via a screen!
Here are our top 10 virtual team building exercises that will allow you keep the morale high:
Given that most online meetings these days happen via Zoom, there are several team building problem solving activities that you can do online, very easily.
Now let’s say, it’s a conference call, you can still have plenty of simple team building activities that can break the ice or improve communication.
Covid has played spoilt sport for almost everyone – team mates who might have made a ton of plans otherwise are now unable to even meet each other. However that does not mean that they still can’t have fun times.
It doesn’t matter whether you have a huge team or you are looking for small group team building activities, there are some activities that work just as well online, as they do offline.
Covid has perhaps brought the toughest time on students, because at a time when they are meant to be building memories for a lifetime, they are stuck in front of a screen. However, there are plenty of unusual team building activities that are perfect for students.
How does a virtual team building activity work?
You and your team of 5-6 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 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.
