Fun Team Building Social Activities in Melbourne

Urban Quest offers one of a kind, fun team building activities Melbourne businesses, government bureaus, charities and any other type of organisation can turn to when they need to rekindle the fire in their workforce and transform staff members into bonded teammates.

The idea was inspired from the Amazing Race TV show, in which teams competed against each other in a race around the world, seeking out clues that would lead them to their next location. Urban Quest identified the possibilities this concept had in terms of engaging teams in a fun and physically active way that would also deliver lessons in terms of how to overcome and deal with real-world situations staff face during the course of their day.

Pushing teams to overcome roadblocks and obstacles as they complete the game, encourages them to act as a collective who make decisions and complete tasks together that will, where successful, give them a competitive edge against their rivals. It also makes it a fun and interesting way to see your staff in a new light where they may show their potential as leaders, strategists or reveals skills and expertise that were previously unknown.

While the Urban Quest team has over 15 years of combined experience in the industry our concept is completely unique in Australia.

All of our events are technology-based, with participants using their smartphones and nothing else to navigate the game with their teammates on the streets of Melbourne’s central business district, save for a few in-character “agents” who appear from time to time along the route. The game typically takes between 2 and 3 hours to complete but this time flies by and is proven to give a buzz and energy to your workforce that will retain once back at work in the office.

If you believe all teambuilding exercises and activities out there are the same and offer nothing new, this is where Urban Quest differentiates itself. We can customise our games for your specific workplace challenges so that your staff can gain a new perspective and work through them emerging on the other side as a team.

Money isn’t everything

According to Watson Wyatt consulting firm, employees place twice as much value on a collaborative work environment than on the financial incentives they receive. On the first read that may seem ridiculous and a little shocking, but think about it, who really wants to get up every morning hating the idea of the day ahead of them even if it pays well?

In time even the most focused of employees will see the writing on the wall and seek out opportunities elsewhere. Good talent is hard to find, and we believe it’s worth retaining.

Team building social activities with a targeted agenda that both allows your staff to engage and interact with one another in a constructive and mutually rewarding way and imparts leadership, teamwork and support values that can be transferred directly to the workplace is the way forward.

One-off paintball or go-karting outings do little other than provide a temporary distraction, which is why Urban Quest is emerging as go-to specialists when organisations want their staff to become a TEAM.

So, when planning your next event, don’t just settle for the old familiars, try fun team building activities Melbourne employees have learned and grown from for years at Urban Quest. There isn’t another experience like it out there.

Our team building clients' TESTIMONIALS

Urban Quest was amazingly fun experience for my team. No only was it fun but also a great team building experience that brings out everyone's strengths. Great bonds were formed and the smile lasted for the rest of the day!.

Yolandi Franken, National Director Miss Multiverse Australia

So well done! We had such a great day, Serge was very professional, helped get everyone on board at the beginning of the day and set the scene for all of us. Controlling 20 plus women who are all very forthright was no easy feet, but he did so with ease, respect and a sense if fun and adventure. The team also customised the game to fit in with our goals! So well done! Thanks Urban Quest!
