RESET 2021 with WERKIN
Team building with great learning outcomes that you can use to kickstart 2021 with meaning and purpose
Gain diverse perspectives
Creative team building exercises get employees using their imagination. They will be bouncing fresh ideas off of each other, building on those ideas together, and increasing their empathy and listening skills along the way. Understanding diverse perspectives allows you to be a better teammate, employee, and manager.
Restore existing connections and build new ones between your people and with your organisation. Uncertainty and remote working through a pandemic has left people feeling isolated during 2020. Our educational activity will bring your team closer together, improving engagement and morale through collaboration and fun.
Listen and be heard
Our Escape Room encourages ALL employees to bring their whole selves to the game, courageously sharing their lived experiences and speaking their truths. At a time in history when we seem more divided than ever, bringing people together through a shared purpose is a meaningful way to start the new year. And set up 2021 for success.

Why do I need this?
We are all glad that 2020 is behind us, but there were some important lessons for society, individuals, and for the workforce to take into 2021.
Things like Diversity & Inclusion, Flexible Working, and Mental Health are now at the top of the management agenda - so how do you galvanise your employees to get them on the same page, and also understand their perspectives on and journeys through these topics?Makes sense, book me in!
