While individuals play escape games for fun with their family and friends, the human resources department of companies of all sizes, are using escape rooms to accurately assess the mindset, behavior, and skills of their employees. This is used to assign work to the employee, decide promotions and rewards, form teams for specific tasks, and also determine any training or development programs for the employee. Escape Hour works closely with companies in Alberta, Canada to formulate suitable escape games which they can use to assess their employees and provides the information the company requires regarding the employees.
Most employees are hired after an interview which is usually less than an hour. Since they are aware that they will be getting a well-paid job, the candidates being hired put on their best behavior during the interview, giving the right answers. Only when the employee starts working at the job, he will show his true character, since it is not possible to be always acting. In some cases, the character flaws like rude behavior, ridiculing others can affect the relationships of the employee with others, cause conflict and affect overall productivity.
Businesses would like to find out the true character of its employee. Playing the escape game in the quest room for an hour will show the real character of the person as he works with other employees from the same department. Since the team has to find the clues, solve puzzles and exit the locker room in an hour, they will be under pressure to perform and show their real behavior. The game master is monitoring the escape room in Edmonton using CCTV cameras, and the business can request CCTV footage of the employees playing the escape game.
Businesses in Calgary can book one or more escape rooms at Escape Hour, to find out how their employees work together, the relationship between the team members.
