Office morale is vital because when employees get burnt out, productivity often plummets. Driving up office morale doesn't have to include spending large portions of budgets or buckets of cash on drinks, new office equipment, dinners or vacations together. Sometimes you can increase a sense of camaraderie in the office by cutting loose together; office trivia games can assist you in this.
TV Office Trivia
Many television sitcoms throughout history have featured office life and relations between coworkers with a great amount of humour and much memorability. Ask people in your office to create trivia questions from office-based sitcoms and dramas, such as "The Office," "Murphy Brown," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Boston Legal," "Ally McBeal or "The West Wing." People will fondly remember moments from some of their favourite shows as they have some friendly competition with their coworkers. Offer a modest prize to the winning team such as movie tickets or a gift token.
Ask co-workers to make up trivia questions about each other. Spend several days compiling the questions, asking co-workers to come up with at least 10 questions about each other. For example, a question could be "Which person in this office majored in musical theatre in college?" Or "Which person in this office has a dog named Clover?" Or "Which person in this office wore a tie with reindeer on it to the Christmas party?" Such questions will share information among co-workers, helping people realise their commonality and encouraging them to perhaps share more information with each other. Give a prize to the person or team with the most correct answers.
Popular Culture Quizzes
This quiz helps people in the workplace relieve stress by not thinking about work or work-related issues. Instead this game gives their minds a break and allows them to brainstorm in groups about answers to their collective history. Each question and each answer reminds the team members how much they have in common. Divide workers into teams and have each team make up trivia questions about pop culture. For example, one question could be: "When did Mattel manufacture the first Barbie doll?" or "What job did Sheryl Crow have before she was a famous singer?" This game will test people's knowledge and let you and your teammates learn the answers together.
