Just because your team works together doesn’t imply they bond well together.
Building a cohesive unit allows people to enjoy working with each other. At the same time, these activities should not lie outside of your regular workflow by disrupting it.
But that’s easier said than done. This is where Trivia comes in.
Building super-engaging team at Workform
Trivia is fun to play. It explores the light side of getting together with your team and discovering new things about your teammates. It makes it effortless for everyone to unwind, share and build relationships.
One such example where Trivia was deployed on similar lines is ‘Workform’.
Workfrom is a virtual cafe that helps you find a coworking space: a kind of coffee shop on the cloud for you to connect and work remotely. Their biggest challenge was to bring those casual non-work-related banter to remote work.
Enter Trivia and boom! As soon as they started playing it, they felt the difference. Our games re-injected the much-needed fun to their remote work and promoted collaboration and camaraderie.
As a result, Trivia became crucial in bringing everyone in one place and recreating those in-office jokes, casual talks, and de-stressing conversations to their remote work.
Conversely, Trivia’s impact was immensely positive by helping them combat loneliness and foster collaboration.
Making camaraderie and fun a part of daily work at Headout
Building team camaraderie in a workplace is challenging. Because when you’ve an in-person team, communication and bonding happen organically. But, in a remote setup, it is challenging.
Headout understood this well and introduced Trivia in their workspace. (Headout is an on-demand travel platform helping travelers to discover and book incredible tours, activities, events, and social experiences).
In just 5 mins of playing Trivia, the signs were clear. Everyone noticed a significant difference in the way they came together as a team.
Trivia has become some sort of a habit for teams at Headout. In fact, they’ve auto-scheduled the games to ensure they never miss out on the fun. This helps them to think as a unit, and ultimately the company thrives out of it.
Increasing remote team engagements by 10x at Orfium
Team building is an art. To accomplish it, you need proper tools. Rightly so, Orfium found their own via Trivia. Orfium is a music management platform and monetization service. They offer artists and curators with necessary rights to control, license, and monetize music services.
One of their main challenges was to engage their virtual team and bring back in-office employee interactions to remote work.
To maintain the same engagement levels as they used to have in their offices, it was necessary to employ a practice that’ll bring their entire team together in one place.
Those lighter moments that come from sitting next to your colleague in-office had been missing, and Trivia made a huge difference by making individuals feel their co-worker’s presence right from their living rooms. As a result, a focus on employee mental health and well-being became possible.
Cultivating camaraderie and collaboration at Concenso labs
The name “Consenso” was derived from a Spanish word meaning “consensus.” They started as a blockchain incubator, later branching into solving challenging finance, legal and economic challenges.
The pandemic outbreak made them go remote with individuals spread across geography. But they started to miss those casual office chit-chats and watercooler talks. Having understood this, they started using Trivia to connect folks through interactive games and fun-filled quizzes.
Being a company that breaths Slack, Trivia simply made it easier for them to adopt seamlessly without switching apps. The early signs were clear – they wanted more!
During one such occasion when they played “Gotcha!”, one particular member fooled the entire workforce with his witty answers. No one expected this sweet twist in the tale until they finished playing. The post-game conversations were so much fun and engaging.
All work and no play… You know how it goes. Working hard is important. But remember, having fun, memorable and light moments at work is equally necessary. Even in these unprecedented times, the transformation to remote work shouldn’t prohibit employees from staying connected.
And Trivia exactly ensures it at its best!
