Space is the perfect place to see if employees and hiring candidates are truly team players
"We can send your employees on several space-themed missions in our virtual escape rooms to see how well they perform as a team," said Reason (https://www.tryreason.com/)
It's also a great place to really get to know new candidates, such as during an internship process. Teams of up to 100 people can remotely engage in Sci-Fi space-themed missions. After entering the virtual escape room, your team has an hour to uncover clues and use problem-solving skills to complete missions.
Expect your team to have fun developing valuable collaboration skills, while acquiring new technical skills. Returning customers include NASA, JPL, SETI online, and many others.
"Escape rooms are a great tool to assess any team member's quality of execution in a non-mission critical environment. How do team members handoff problems or do they have the patience to get thru harder puzzles that require more time? These are things hard to uncover in an interview," said Chen.
Reason has four space missions.
"Our first mission was based on the International Space Station (ISS) and it's called Lola in Space. (https://www.tryreason.com/
The second game was Moonshot.
"It's our most popular game and won a few awards including the Product Hunt Golden Kitty Award. The team's mission is to send a rescue mission to the moon to save an astronaut stranded on the lunar station before the launch window closes within 27 days," said Chen.
The third game is Lola 2: Mars and it's about the moral implication of a mining colony on the red planet. Your team gets hit by a sandstorm and the mining colony is damaged.
After your team restores the colony, there's a moral dilemma with different outcomes at the end of the game. Your team's job is to get it back online and start drilling but the question is are you gonna?
The last game is Moonshot 2: Gateway. Lola is on the way to Mars, but first, she must refuel at the Lunar Gateway. The problem though is the Gateway is unresponsive, so she can't refuel her ship. Your team's mission, is to remotely access the Gateway and help Lola dock and refuel her ship.
