Let’s see how this Trivia makes the team-building easier:

Story Behind Trivia

At Springworks, we announced our remote-first policy on May 6th, 2020. So there was a BIG challenge in front of us: How to keep our team spirit high and team camaraderie intact?

So we started fun virtual activities every evening at around 5:00 PM called ‘Tea Break,’ where everyone jumped in to play Kahoot! Quizzes via Zoom.

After about a month of dedicated planning of Kahoot! + Zoom meetings, our team saw how convenient, fun, and seamless it would be to have an app that hosts quizzes within our team communication platform, Slack.

And then we built Trivia.

Today, Trivia has helped build engagement in over 9,000 companies across 40 countries and is loved by more than 360,000+ working professionals. 

Trivia brings together teams to play real-time games right within Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Google Chat. Because of its seamless integration with these communication tools, employees can get started with quick breaks at any point of the day without any prior planning.

Trivia for Team Building

When your team is working remotely, it’s easy to slip into isolation without anyone noticing. Trivia has you covered! 

Do you want to keep your team spirit high and team camaraderie intact? Trivia empowers remote teams to build a stronger bond with fun-filled games.

The magic that Trivia spells on your remote teams:
