laser tag for team-building — Ask a Supervisor


It’s “the place are you now?” month at Ask a Supervisor, and all December I’m working updates from individuals who had their letters right here answered up to now.

There shall be extra posts than typical this week, so maintain checking again all through the day.

Bear in mind the letter-writer who was being required to take part in laser tag for team-building? Right here’s the replace.

Thanks for answering my letter in regards to the laser tag.

I appreciated your remark about not having fun with films with a whole lot of taking pictures; I’ve by no means loved violence in my leisure actions and what with all of the horrible issues happening on the planet proper now (and, actually, ever), I actually couldn’t see myself partaking in laser tag. It was reassuring to know that I’m not the one one who feels this fashion about laser tag; it’s at all times comforting to have another person agree with you.

I did ahead your publish to some colleagues at my degree and inspired them to push again with their managers about how in addition they don’t wish to play laser tag and a number of other of them did. I didn’t find yourself having time to talk to my very own supervisor about it once more however I did resolve that on the day of the occasion I’d very firmly say that I felt uncomfortable collaborating and would wait within the adjoining arcade/snack bar space for everybody else to complete. (Though since arcades set off my outdated online game dependancy and the flashing lights give me complications, this wasn’t best both.) By the point Laser Tag Day rolled round, I consider there have been a minimum of six individuals who stated they couldn’t or wouldn’t take part.

Laser Tag Day was scheduled for the second afternoon of our three days of conferences. On the primary day, we did a day “crew constructing train” at an arcade and everybody however one worker participated. Day two began out with a brief all-staff assembly after which we broke into groups for the remainder of the morning. Our crew was discussing some actually essential topics when one other crew requested the boss if as an alternative of laser tag we may proceed their crew assembly and he requested our crew if we needed to do the identical. Since many people had already felt even earlier than the conferences that we undoubtedly may use extra time discussing precise work as an alternative of taking part in video games, this ended up being best. Many people are nonetheless confused as to why we would have liked two full afternoons of non-work after we see one another in individual so occasionally anyway. Large Boss had stated that nobody pays consideration within the afternoons at these employees conferences so he figured our time could be higher used doing one thing enjoyable. I’m unsure why he didn’t see this as a cue to revamp our all-staff conferences in order that they’re extra related to everybody as an alternative of getting the identical group dialogue we have now each time we get collectively, which is simply eye-opening for the couple of latest employees members we have now every time and a giant motive why nobody pays consideration anymore. It’s fairly irritating that he determined to discover a totally different strategy to waste our time as an alternative of changing the standard, work-related time waster with one thing that’s really productive.

Anyway, as you may see, laser tag was solely the tip of the iceberg as to why many people have been annoyed at this chosen exercise however the truth that it was laser tag particularly was particularly irritating to me as somebody who doesn’t wish to take part in any type of gun-related exercise. Thanks once more to your recommendation, I’ll undoubtedly be extra agency in my method if this comes up once more.
