Shrewd managers are aware that a successful business needs well motivated staff and recognise the need to build regular motivational away days into the training program. These can take a variety of forms but the most successful corporate events will be those which are memorable because they are well run, enjoyable and involve everyone for most of the day with little or no standing around watching others.
So are you a shrewd manager? Had you thought about a corporate treasure hunt for your Aberdeen company fun day?
A treasure hunt motivates your staff as the teams stay together for the duration of the event and are also continually occupied. After having planned the most efficient route round the city, the team must work together to answer the clues, which range from really easy to really obscure.
Then there are the silly photographs, tasks and shopping lists to add the fun element. The prizes at the end of the treasure hunt ensure that the event will be competitive. The successful team will have planned, communicated, thought laterally, negotiated and been involved from start to finish.
You can sit back knowing the company's away day budget has been well spent
Your Aberdeen treasure hunt or scavenger hunt has factual, fun and amusing clues that will make you groan when you work out the answer - then there is a 'shopping' list and a word quiz, as well as photographs to take thus keeping all team members busy.
There are more clues and photo challenges than can possibly be completed in the time available so participants will not run out of things to do.
Teams need to be back on time to mark the Aberdeen treasure hunt or risk losing points for every minute late. The marking session is great fun with teams marking their own results under the watchful eye of another team member, but the organiser's decision is final (unless swayed by a bottle of red wine!). The marking sessions are always good entertainment with plenty of banter and tension as teams watch their results unfold.
Marking of the smartphone or tablet Aberdeen treasure hunt is automatic but each team has no idea of the scores of the other teams until all is revealed at the finish venue. Clues can be answered or skipped but you can't return to them. Hints are available for the clues if needed but at a points cost.
Your Scavenger or Treasure hunt can be written with start and finish locations to suit your event and the photo tasks ensure that you have a lasting memory of your day.
Answering the clues and winning the day's treasure requires good communication, teamwork and plenty of creative thinking.

Flexible. Use the treasure hunt whenever you want during your event. Shorten it. Lengthen it. It's up to you. The benefit is that if things are running late or something finishes early, it simply won't matter.
No set route. Other providers have a set route. We don't. Teams will meet during the event so it is still fun and sociable making it memorable for the right reasons.
