Virtual Team Building Games Engage Remote Employees in a Shifting Environment

Feet First Eventertainment Introduces “Cyber Sleuths” to Address Growing Social Distancing Mandates

Culver City, CA – March 20, 2020 – As businesses everywhere adapt to a rapidly-changing landscape, many are scrambling to find the best ways to connect their growing remote workforce. Feet First Eventertainment, Inc., a nationwide leader in corporate team building, announced an innovative new virtual event designed to benefit people suddenly forced to work-from-home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event is titled “Cyber Sleuths: A Virtual Code Breaking Adventure.” It creates a fun and engaging way for players to interact with their colleagues and friends. Because many people are working remotely for the first time, the game is designed to help participants learn the tools needed to succeed using video and web-conferencing platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Team, Google Hangouts, etc.

“We built our company to bring people together through shared experiences,” said Kevin Cloutier, Co-Founder of Feet First Eventertainment. “With so many people forced to work from home, we quickly realized that businesses were going to need a new way to strengthen relationships and build camaraderie within their teams.”

The Cyber Sleuths event combines the puzzles and intrigue of an in-person escape room with the fun and adventure of a scavenger hunt. The entire activity is run virtually on a web-conferencing platform. Each participant connects remotely from their home or remote office to solve puzzles and clues in hopes of helping their team succeed. Along with the opportunity to engage with their coworkers in a fun environment, the program helps participants master many of the skills needed to thrive on a web-conferencing platform, like screen-sharing, file transfer, and using whiteboard features.

“We started with the goal of trying to connect businesses in a fun, dynamic way,” said Dave Cloutier, Co-Founder and brother of Kevin Cloutier. “As we developed the event, we found we were also creating a really fun utility that helped people understand the web-conferencing tools they’ll need for the next few months, and perhaps even longer. As businesses evolve to adapt to the new landscape, people will need to integrate these virtual communication solutions even more.”
