In today's fast-paced and often virtual work environment, fostering a sense of unity within a team can be challenging. Teambuilding is a critical aspect of creating a productive, cohesive, and enjoyable workplace. A better team lifts all boats! One unconventional way to enhance teambuilding is through team trivia games in the workplace. This blog post explores the importance of teambuilding, the benefits of using team-based trivia, and how Crowdpurr is designed to make it all happen.

The Importance of Teambuilding

Teambuilding is more than just a corporate buzzword; it's the backbone of a successful and harmonious work environment. Effective teambuilding activities can lead to improved communication, better problem-solving skills, increased morale, and higher productivity. When team members feel connected and valued, they are more likely to contribute their best work and support one another, resulting in a positive and dynamic workplace culture.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. - Aristotle

Why Team Trivia for Teambuilding?

Trivia actually works great for teambuilding in a variety of ways.

Camaraderie Through Competition

Who doesn’t like a little friendly competition? Players can identify and group up with other members of their team such as the “HR” team, the “Marketing” team, or the “West Coast Office” team. Players will enjoy the friendly atmosphere created by having the various teams of their organization compete with one another.

Employee Inclusivity

Trivia can also be a highly inclusive activity that encourages participation from all team members, regardless of their role or level in the organization. Trivia games are fun, versatile, and can be tailored to suit the interests and knowledge bases of diverse groups.

Support In-Person and Remote Workers

An interactive trivia platform like Crowdpurr supports in-person, remote, and hybrid participants! It’s perfect for today’s hybrid work models that bring together workers from the office and the home. Players can join on their mobile device or their desktop/laptop computer. They can follow along live in-person or virtually through a Zoom meeting.

Value-Added Benefits like Educating the Team

Not only does playing team trivia increase teambuilding and identity within your organization, it’s a great way to thread your company’s content, mission, and values into a fun morale-boosting activity. Throw in some questions about your company’s latest initiative or products. Or what missions or community services your organization is involved in. Use trivia as a way to educate your team!

How Does Crowdpurr Support Team Trivia?

Crowdpurr offers a few different formats and features for team trivia games.

Basic Team Mode

Crowdpurr’s Basic Team Mode is when you have a group of players on a team all sharing a single device to play. Players can “put their heads together” to come up with the correct answer, and a single team leader casts the vote on behalf of the team. Basic Team Mode is good for banquet-style events where players are seated together and then elect a lone team leader. When the leader joins the game on their device, they enter a name for their team. Then the various teams compete and are ranked on the live rankings leaderboard.

Advanced Team Mode

Advanced Team Mode is when every player wants to get in on the action. In this mode, every player joins on their own device and selects the team they want to join when signing in. The host must add the various teams prior to the event so each player may choose a team. Then every player answers every question. This allows the host to show both the individual player rankings and team rankings. Crowdpurr takes care of intelligently averaging out each team’s performance based on the individual player performance of each team member The teams are then ranked and displayed.
