Recently, we had the opportunity to take AnswerLab, a San Francisco-based company that specializes in user experience research, for a fantastic day of team building in the City by the Bay.
AnswerLab came to us looking for a team building event that would help them connect their out-of-town employees with their fellow co-workers who are local to San Francisco. As a company with teams in New York, D.C. and San Francisco (along with remote employees all over the world), we loved the challenge at hand!
Our guides planned a fabulous two-and-a-half-hour custom museum adventure for AnswerLab’s team of 16. We tailored the company’s private museum tour to celebrate what makes AnswerLab unique. The company is known for its innovative research with eye tracking, so our guides dug up the best pieces that feature the way eyes move through artwork.
We also led several team building activities during the tour, including our favorite games such as Buy, Steal, Burn and The Match Maker. AnswerLab’s larger group was divided into smaller teams in order to take on our most challenging de Young scavenger hunt yet where each team must race through the museum to find hidden objects – it was good spirited and collaborative, but of course there was only one winner!
Before heading home for the day, AnswerLab’s team let their hair down during our fun Polaroid photo challenge, where team members took cheeky photos as they posed with the statues in the museum.
Overall, it was a great day of team building that allowed AnswerLab’s local and remote employees to engage with each other and get to know each other in ways they hadn’t been able to before.
