Pocket Universe: Your Window Into the World of Virtual Reality

Is It Real or Is It Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality is seemingly the next wave in entertainment. What once was a technology reserved for sci-fi movies and those willing to pay Dave & Buster’s too much money for a limited experience, has broken into the mainstream. The Oculus Rift, a partly crowd-funded VR device, was released after months of hype to a warm critical reception. Even traditional video games are hopping on the VR bandwagon, with the PlayStation VR headset already on shelves and Nintendo and Microsoft hinting they may go that direction soon as well. But like most emerging technologies, the price for one of these VR sets can be astronomically high. So what do you do if you can’t afford one and you really want to give it a try? Paranoia Quest has you covered with their new VR Escape Room Game, Pocket Universe. Read more

Newest Escape Room in Buford Could Help Your Company Focus

Preventing employee burnout should be a top priority in any workplace. It is important to understand that work can get overwhelming for employees, no matter what kind of business you run. When they become overwhelmed their drive, determination and productivity usually decrease. Part of being a good boss is being in-tune with your team and employees.

Burnout is defined as a state of exhaustion where one is cynical about the value of his/her occupation and doubtful about his/her ability to perform. It usually manifests in the form of anxiety, irritability, weight gain or loss, frequent absence and/or weak immune system.

What can lead to Employee Burnout?

  • Imbalance of Home and Work Life
  • Escape Room BurnoutWorkload
  • Lack of Incentives
  • Minimal Recognition or Feedback
  • Loss of Faith in Leadership
  • Communication Issues
  • Voice isn’t Being Heard
  • Role Ambiguity
  • Work Environment
  • Lack of Control

Demoting or firing burnt out employees only leads to more burnout. That person’s duties are now added to other employees’ plates, creating more stress and burn out. Burnout can lead to job withdrawal, lower productivity, ineffectiveness, decreased job satisfaction, reduced commitment to the job, greater personal conflict with colleagues, and disruption in coworkers’ job tasks. Don’t let employee burnout become a problem. Burnout is easy to prevent.

Tips for Addressing Burnout

Listen – Sit down and listen to what your employees have to say. They will appreciate your time and engagement and feel like their voice is being heard. Help when possible and get the root of the issues.

Be Fair and Flexible – Treat all employees the same. Preferential treatment causes a hostile work environment. Remember to be flexible on deadlines. If your employees tell you it is unrealistic, it probably is.

Have Fun – Keeping employees happy and in love with their job is important. Work on creating a positive work environment (stock the fridge, give them goodies and incentives, team building, lunch party, half-days etc.).

Recognize Success – Make every employee feel needed and valued. Unexpected recognition or feedback makes them feel good and boosts their drive.

Encourage Socializing – Make sure your team is talking and bonding. When they know and like each other they are more likely to enjoy work and be more productive and creative.
