Employee Team Building


Employee morale is an important part of the business and one of the toughest to address sometimes. Teamwork is an essential part of keeping employee morale positive and the most productive. One of the best ways to build team work with employees is to do something fun together in a competitive environment  that requires major co-operation to succeed.

UAQ - Finding Clues

Christie Walker, Editor of LabTalk turned us on to Urban Adventure Quest. It is the perfect team building experience. A group breaks up into teams of 4 to 5 people, then working together using a smart phone, they solve clues and complete challenges that foster team building and cooperation. The game software keeps track of the points and time, making it easy to declare a winner at the end of the event.

This urban walking tour will have your groups making their way through the city, discovering new sights, learning local history, and providing the perfect forum for learning about each other as well.

UAQ - Major Hollywood Clue

The tour is guided by any phone or device with Internet capabilities. At $49 per team, you can have 4 teams of 4 people (16 total) completely involved in a unique team-building adventure for only $196. Group discounts are available for 5 or more teams. 

Cathy and I are planning on doing it ourselves in San Diego and would like some more optical folks to join us, let us know if you would like to be on our team. We will be adding an activity for extra points, pictures of optical retailers! Ha ha!
