Race Around the World is an online team building activity that is designed specifically for remote workers.The activity is delivered by our award-winning Go Team app and can be played on any device in any location. Race Around the World has three levels, each with a variety of fun, exciting challenges.
Each team represents an explorer. Players communicate with their team over video conferencing collaborating to guide their team's explorer avatar across the globe. To complete all three game levels successfully with the maximum amount of points, teams must take notice of online bulletins and assess information gleaned from the game map. Timed stages and the added pressure of managing limited resources makes for a very engaging learning platform.
Race Around The World allows remote workers to develop soft skills in a way that applies to working from home. As the objectives unfold gradually throughout the game and situations change, teams must take an agile approach to their collaborative strategic thinking and planning. Race Around the World has an iterative learning framework where participants are encouraged to gather information, think critically and compare their solution with that of others in the team. Under the pressure of time, teams find that communicating online is quite different from face-to-face communication. Actively listening to receive and interpret messages, watching for facial cues and communicating precisely and succinctly are keys to team success.
As a planner and trying to juggle many tasks leading up to our first global virtual event, I felt very comfortable and confident that the team would successfully operate the game for our 350 participants, and they did just that and more! Truly went over and above my expectations. Very accommodating, detail oriented and highly energized. Our attendees loved the Race Around the World Experience, we received such awesome positive feedback!!
