The Best Workplace Quiz Rounds

Team bonding is a vital part of any workplace and a lack of interaction between different team members can lead to awkwardness in the office. 

 

Quizzes are a great way to get your team working together, as well as encouraging them to have a bit of fun in the office. At Quiz on Demand, we have a wide variety of different quizzes to choose from that are perfect for your next team meeting.

 

Why quizzes are great for team-building

Listed below are some of the top reasons why quizzes are good for team building

 

Encourages a mix in team members

When you work in a bigger work environment with a number of different teams, it’s easy for groups and cliques to form. Quizzes allow different members of your team to collaborate when they wouldn’t normally get a chance to, especially if you create the teams. 

 

Everyone can participate 

Quizzes give the chance for everyone to participate, from those in management to new hires, which helps to make sure everyone is included and part of the team. The more the members of staff feel included in the team, the more likely they are to feel comfortable and will likely open-up more. 

 

Provides a small relief in busy days 

Of course it’s important your staff get on with their roles and responsibilities, but it is also important you encourage them to take breaks and socialise. Quizzes are a great way for staff to have with their colleagues and can help to take their mind off aspects that may be causing some stress, and ultimately perform better.

 

Why should you run quizzes during work meetings?

 

Quizzes are a great way to set the tone of a meeting and it allows members of your team to ‘warm up’ before the actual meeting starts. 

 

Quizzes are also a great way to end the meeting on a high and get different team members to interact with each other. You could create a leaderboard, which in turn can help to create a bit of friendly competition in your workplace and get team members excited for the next quiz.

 

If you have regular meetings, weekly for example, quizzes are a great way to keep engagement up. We chat more about this in our guide to making weekly team meetings more engaging!

 

What kind of quiz rounds should you have in the workplace?

 

Picture quizzes for virtual meetings 

Picture quizzes are one of the easiest kinds of quizzes for virtual meetings, since you can very quickly put them into a slideshow. All you need to do is make a slideshow with a different image on each slide, relating to your chosen topic or theme, and then share your screen on your chosen meeting platform. 

 

Once you have finished going through the images, you should repeat them again, but this time reveal the answer. If you’re cautious about cheating, you could ask your team members to send you the answer to each question and you can mark them as you go along. 

 

To make things even easier, our quiz packages come with picture rounds that you can easily download and distribute! It’ll take no time at all, and saves the hassle of planning quizzes for your team.

 

Table top quizzes to start the day 

Tabletop quizzes are a great way to start the day and get your staff feeling productive. Tabletop games are games that are commonly played on a flat surface, such as the top of a table, and as such can be related to any other board game or tile-based games. 

 

In general, they are trivia based games where individuals or teams work to answer questions correctly. They can include a variety of different questions from general knowledge, to sport to movies and so on. 

 

Some popular tabletop games include:

 

  • Word puzzles 
  • Riddles 
  • Anagrams 
  • Phrases and sayings 

 

There are also cryptic puzzles like Catchphrase and Chart Toppers, and word or number puzzles like Think Link, Spellbound, Mystery Year, Dead or Alive and Celebrity Birthdays.

 

At Quiz on Demand, we even have Family Fortunes style questions like Our Survey Said!

 

General knowledge quizzes for team bonding 

A general knowledge quiz is a great way to get your staff members working together to win. If you have a big enough team, split them up into smaller groups who will work together on the quiz. This is a great way to mix those together who wouldn’t normally interact in the working day, and gives those who are typically quieter than others a chance to come out of their shell. 

 

At Quiz on Demand, we make weekly quizzes that are full of general knowledge questions, perfect for your next morning meeting. 

 

Music rounds for friday meetings 

Want to get your team in a feel-good Friday mood? Hosting a music quiz in the morning is a great way to set the tone for a productive and cheerful Friday. If you have a speaker in your office, this will make the quiz a lot easier. 

 

All you need to do is make a playlist of the songs you’re going to play, and then play the intro of each song for 5-10 seconds. You could get your staff to guess the artist and the song or alternatively, they could guess the first lyric of the song.
