Why a Murder Mystery Christmas Party?
December 7, 2022
You probably never thought to host your company Christmas party online or with a murder mystery style, but there are several reasons you should! For one, in an increasingly digital world, hosting events online creates more accessibility for audiences and teams, facilitates higher attendance numbers, and mimics the human connection previously available only in-person. Our Live In Theater events reveal previously hidden leadership skills among your team members and gives them an opportunity to connect and bond with each other that ultimately leads to higher levels of trust, respect, cooperation, productivity, and satisfaction, which is all great news for everyone! Perhaps, you are on the hunt for a unique and creative offering to pique the interest of your team. We presume that is why you are here. So, we’ve put together a compelling list of reasons why investing in a Live In Theater murder mystery Christmas party is a good idea for your corporation.
#1 It’s FUN, Creative, Challenging, and Facilitates Team-Building
Our murder mystery-style events are an excellent way to infuse more fun into your work and team life by allowing every member of your team to actively participate and solve mysteries together. This requires teamwork, their full engagement, problem solving, trust, creativity, and allows each team member a chance to shine for their unique contribution to the team. Not only are these events highly entertaining, but they are also highly inclusive. There’s a reason murder mystery parties have piqued the attention of so many. They make such a unique and compelling event for your corporation to celebrate the end of the final quarter.
As human beings, we are inherently intrigued by mystery, which there is no shortage of in life on earth. We all live secret inner lives, living out our individuated consciences. Can you ever really know someone? What they would or wouldn’t do? What makes us all that different given the same set of circumstances? These questions hit on the seductive and captivating nature of murder mysteries and are some of the driving questions behind the compelling plots of our events.
Our entertaining events invoke humor, which activates the brain’s dopamine reward system, thereby stimulating goal-oriented motivation. Combine that with our distinct need to cooperate to achieve a common goal and you have a recipe for success! The cooperation required for our events increases feelings of trust and belonging among your team, giving each person a very important role to play in order to solve the mystery. These are all magnificent qualities to have for an event that will be your future corporate Christmas party.
#2 Team Retention: One of The Biggest Problems Facing Businesses Today
It’s 2022, and we’ve seen unprecedented and rapid change in how we approach work and how we work together. Remote work and engagement have never been more mainstream, which creates its own challenges and opportunities. We are now living through the age of “The Great Resignation,” whereby it is no longer a requirement to live in a specific geographical location in order to make a living. You’ve spent countless hours and dollars investing in hiring and training your team. A paramount concern facing companies today is retaining that team who have unprecedented opportunities available to them. Investing in creative ways to keep your team engaged and loyal to you ultimately protects company profitability. There are many ways you can make your company an appealing option for new and existing hires. You can include unique and appealing benefits for the modern person, such as our distinctive and entertaining team-building murder mystery events.
You may have heard about companies like Google or YouTube offering their team full benefits packages that extend far beyond traditional health benefits. For the modern-day professional, topics of the highest interest include leadership, personal and professional development, team development exercises, events, and retreats. Companies who jump on investing in creative events and opportunities that allow their teams to connect with each other. Also, these teambuilding activities uncover previously unknown skills and strengths. They help leaders identify exactly the right roles and positions for their team members who will find themselves ahead of the competition, retention, and innovation curve, with the highest level teams running and innovating in their businesses.
#3 Developing Leadership on Your Team Frees You Up
There’s a reason the world of video games is indeed a world all in its own. Some non-video game players may not understand the compelling nature and value of video games. Yet, those who partake have opportunities to challenge their brains in meaningful ways through analyzing data, problem-solving, and innovating ways to overcome complex situations.
While our Live In Theater events are not video games but rather digital theatrical events with live actors, the same concepts ring true. Our murder mystery events facilitate opportunities to develop leadership skills that lie dormant within your team so that you all can leverage each other’s strengths for the highest levels of satisfaction possible. The way of the future is ensuring that each member of your team is functioning in a role that allows for the highest possible reflection of their strengths and satisfaction. They bring a level of ease, confidence, and natural enthusiasm to their work, which is only good news for you, your team, and the overall company.
When your team can bring all of themselves to work and have a sense of ownership within their role, they have increased confidence in themselves, the team, and higher-level leadership. Also, it frees up your higher level leadership to focus on running the business and not getting caught up in dealing with personalities.
#4 Meaningful Connection Leads to Higher Levels of Trust, Cooperation, Innovation, and Productivity within Your Team
Finally, one of the most valuable investments you can ever make in your team is to create and facilitate opportunities for meaningful connection: with them and each other. In the context of the COVID-19 era, competition, retention, and innovation are the forefront issues facing corporations today, which all boil down to your company values, team culture, and leadership. At the end of the day, corporations are made up of individuals. We need to feel connected to each other, along with a sense of belonging and community; something we’ve all been deprived of on some level for some time.
We feel that our murder mystery parties touch on many of the elements that corporations are looking for to give them an edge in 2022 and beyond. And with Christmas just rounding the corner, a murder mystery party would be a cutting-edge way to invest and give back to your team.
