SAMAC Team Building Day 2017

Staff Team Building Day

On 30 August 2017, SAMAC staff and consultants participated in a fun team building event that was held at Escape Capers (escape room) in Calgary.  The event was a great way for everyone to interact in a manner that we don’t usually get to at work.  Our office has a wide range of ages, backgrounds and experience; therefore, the event was an illuminating study in group dynamics.  Along with having fun, critical thinking and open-mindedness were definite requirements to be successful in the game, and also in life.

The competitive spirit was alive and well between the teams and each team was within 2 minutes of each other’s escape time and finding the path to success.  As in all games and competitions there is a winner and a loser, however we shall remain silent on who the losers were!

SAMAC is a busy office and sometimes we get bogged down with focusing on work.  Our team building event and having fun together outside of the office was a great way to recharge our batteries, and time well spent.

We would like to thank the staff at Escape Capers, they were humorous and helpful and provided end of game comments that we found very instructive. We would highly recommend them for any corporate or personal event.  If you would like to check them out, here is their website: https://escapecapers.ca/.
