A London-based startup specialising in remote team building has recently marked a huge milestone of serving over 7,000 guests online.
Steamed Egg was founded in 2018, well before the Covid pandemic hit and affected the lives of millions worldwide. The company offers remote team building games and virtual reality games, designed to bring workers together in a fun and collaborative way.
Before Covid, the founder Jason Leigh and his team would visit offices across the UK, including Sky, Amazon and Deliveroo, and plan a host of virtual games with their teams, also bringing in people who worked remotely or abroad. The sessions were a success. The teams enjoyed playing, laughing and coming together in an enjoyable way, rather than feeling the 9 to 5 grind.
Jason Leigh, the founder, explained: “When covid hit and the lockdown started, we had to go back to the drawing board and we came up with a totally new experience. Within a month, we were ready to share our new games with teams using remote video conferencing tools such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams. The only thing is that we could not use virtual headsets due to Covid reasons, but we will be sure to bring these back.”
“The main game we run is called Yolking From Home! It is a take on a 70’s TV game show and includes six unique and collaborative games, which are totally unique and unseen before.”
“Our goal is to help managers engage with their staff, helping them to unwind, have a good time and get to know each-other better. Getting up and running is very quick, even if you are darted around the country and working at home.”
“We believe that laughter is the best medicine for your team’s isolation and lockdown blues. Fun games that last an hour can be simple enough to strengthen relationships and reinforce your team’s sense of unity.”
The pricing is based on the number of players that will join your event (up to 180 players) and how many games you wish to play (usually 2-3 games), with the average game taking around 75 minutes.
If you are a team of up to 15 people and looking to play 2 games, this will cost £520.
