Recruits Will Get to Virtually See Why They’d Be ‘Mad As a Hatter’ to Work at BDO

From Consultancy.uk:

BDO has announced it has joined the workplace gaming scene. It is attempting to attract top new talent with an Alice in Wonderland-themed game which tests potential recruits’ abilities in problem-solving and assessing cause and effect. As reported by the Telegraph, the games will see recruits try to find a key in a specialist room at BDO’s Baker Street offices, in which objects and the player change size depending on the actions taken. BDO designed the challenge to assess how people establish cause and effect, as Alice, when in Wonderland, grows or shrinks depending on what she consumes in one particular room.
