TimeSquared represents a new standard of team building, featuring state of the art interactive and immersive activities combined with insider knowledge of the corporate world.

Our packages are tailored to meet the demands of modern businesses who want to find out what their staff and management are capable of, and who want to highlight exceptional team members as well as identify weaknesses in their group dynamic.

Taking your team Go-Karting or Chocolate Making might strengthen their bond socially, but does it help them work better as a team? Does it help them recognise the value of each team member? Does it develop them as individuals?

Working together to achieve an objective against a deadline emulates the workplace demands in a new way, revealing the true priorities and approach of your team. With real time interaction from virtual characters as well as curve balls thrown in mid-experience, management can get real insight into how their workforce interpret situations, work together and whether they are effective communicators and team players.

TimeSquared seeks to bridge a gap in the market. Unlike its contemporaries who offer activities like Go-Karting and Chocolate Making, TimeSquared goes beyond just competition and a glorified day out, instead focussing on actually building and strengthening teams as well as developing staff as individuals.

Why Invest in Team Building?

We’re living in unprecedented times, with Covid-19 and Brexit putting pressure on businesses most of us have never seen in our lifetime. Revenue is down, the market is hard, and you may have had to say goodbye to valuable members of staff. Employees have taken on more work and the pressure is on to be more efficient and achieve more with less resources than ever before. With people working remotely now, you may have never met your colleagues face to face, your team meetings may be online. It can be hard to engage staff from a distance and build meaningful relationships. Or perhaps you’ve just returned to the office for the first time? Maybe staff you’ve hired during the pandemic are struggling to adjust and be accepted into the team.

We’re here to help you to engage your staff, build and strengthen your teams, and help people grow and develop as team members and as individuals. We believe in the principle of working "Smarter, not Harder" and we strive to help your teams to not just understand this in principle but deliver it in practice. Our interactive experiences aim to develop soft skills which are fundamental to great teamwork and shaping how people approach their daily workload. These skills are the hardest to develop within the workplace resulting in employees struggling to work effectively and meet targets. We believe this is core to delivering "Smarter, not Harder" and achieving effective and efficient teams.

communication

Communication is the driving force behind any team, and businesses rely  on effective communication both internally and externally to function efficiently.  “Strong Communication Skills” feature prominently within Essential Skills on job adverts and are highly sought after, particularly within management and roles which interact cross-functionally. All our activities require effective communication in order to succeed with some focussing entirely on this, requiring participants to be able to articulate clearly what is required and to listen and interpret instructions. We also have additional twists that we can throw into activities for teams who need to focus on this aspect.

problemsolving2

Creativity and Problem-Solving Skills are a core part of our make-up at TimeSquared, with one of our Directors being a strong problem solver. Our ethos is that there are no unsolvable problems, just solutions waiting to be found. We believe that everyone carries the ability to problem solve but that these skills need to be encouraged and developed in order to gain confidence. We’d love to help develop your team’s problem-solving skills.

decisionmaking

Decision Making is a key part of being effective and not just important for team leaders. Our activities require participants to be able to make decisions both individually and corporately and then to take ownership of that decision, driving it forward. Having employees at all levels who are confident in making effective, informed decisions releases team leaders and managers to focus on developing and driving business forward.

leadership2

Leadership Skills are easily overlooked. While some are natural born leaders, these skills can also be honed and developed in individuals. Our activities help your staff discover their leadership style and develop their skills within this area.

teamwork

Teamwork is central to all we do and is what we at TimeSquared, focus on. For a business to function effectively, every part needs to work together cohesively in unity. Each member of the team needs to know their strengths, what they bring to a team and to understand their role within it. All our activities have teamwork as a core facet requiring participants to utilise everyone’s skills. We also have activities that focus directly on developing a sense of team and understanding the different roles and skills needed in a team.

timemanagement2

Time Management and the ability to Work Under Pressure is the crux of Deadline Management and vital for businesses in keeping up with today’s fast pace. Our activities require participants to work under pressure to achieve a goal within a fixed time constraint. We even have activities where the goal or parameters change along with the time frame to reflect real life business scenarios. Participants will have the opportunity to learn these skills and then put them into practice in creative ways.

All our packages are tailored to your needs. We can recommend structured team building days or put together bespoke programmes focussing on areas for development that you have highlighted. Your staff will return to the office refreshed, revitalised, refocused and ready to put their new skills into practice..

Team Building Packages

Every Client is different - from their needs to their budget, so all our packages are crafted uniquely for your business. We have 2 tiers of package, Standard and Premium. Both packages include an Escape Room experience alongside our other high quality interactive experiences and use of our facilities.

All our packages begin with a welcome session including Tea and Coffee and end with a debrief and short Awards Ceremony to feedback with delegates. Tea and Coffee breaks are included in all our packages and for full day packages, a buffet lunch is included which is ordered in from a local company. Larger parties will have exclusive use of our facilities enabling you to relax and make yourselves at home.

Our corporate packages are booked over the phone providing you with a personalised service. Whichever your budget or time option, we will put together the ultimate team day for your delegates and ensure that you get the very best for your money.

Premium Packages

Our premium packages include some additional options as detailed below.

Premium Team Building Activities

When booking your experience, you will be given a list of activities to choose from. Premium packages allow you a wider range to choose from for example, if available, you could choose to add an additional Escape Room experience or one of our more expensive activities.

Boardroom

When booking a premium package, the client will have use of the Boardroom. This could be used to exchange one of the activities with a start of year meeting, or for Management Monitoring (see below).

Management Monitoring

Included as part of the premium package is the option for Managers to monitor the activities and interact with the delegates. We particularly recommend this for Escape Rooms where the Manager can sit with a cup of coffee in the Boardroom and watch the progress on the CCTV. We will work alongside the manager to interact with the players and offer the opportunity to throw some curve balls into the mix - for example, if some of the players are louder than others, they can blindfold the louder players requiring the quieter members of the team to speak up and lead those who cannot see.

Premium Lunch

Our premium lunch is a higher standard of buffet with a wider selection of food items. This will be served on china plates with silverware and glassware in place of paper and plastic.

Prizes

Our Premium packages include prizes. All teams will score points throughout the session and the winning team will receive a prize at the awards ceremony. On top of this, all delegates will get the opportunity to vote for their choice in a number of categories including Most Valuable Player and for the booby prize - which goes to the person who said or did the most ridiculous thing during the session. TimeSquared will provide some prizes but you are welcome to supplement this with prizes of your own e.g. an additional day's holiday, dinner with the CEO etc.
