We take great pride in facilitating a welcoming and fun culture at Oracle Data Cloud. Our teams are always ready to enjoy each other’s presence whether it’s at monthly events, biweekly happy hours, group workouts, or weekly lunch meetups.
But due to a shift in how the world is currently working and our “new normal” of everything virtual, we are coming up with new and creative ways to connect with each other.
To maintain positivity during the challenges we are all facing, some teams have implemented video chat trivia happy hours. The trivia and light-hearted face time has given us the chance to interact with teammates and laugh, a great distraction from the stresses of life and work.
As this new tradition has been such a success for our teams, we’re sharing the instructions for game-play and examples of the types of questions we used. Hopefully it can be a resource for you to facilitate the same team fun!
What you will need:
Group messaging tool
A group of festive coworkers
Step 1: Select 2 hosts
1 to read questions
1 to field answers and keep track of the score
Step 2: Sort into teams based on the number of participants. (Recommend 3-4 people per team).
Here is a site to use for quick sorting.
Step 3: Teams start group chats to discuss and decide on trivia answers.
Step 4: Each team designates a team member to be the official answer submitter. During the game, the answer submitter will send final answers to the host in a private message.
Lastly, build out a list of questions and create an answer key. The types of questions we asked were related to sports, entertainment, science, and history.
We hope you enjoy the game! We truly believe it is so important to stay creative and collaborative and to bring positive energy during this time. Social interaction is valuable, as we are all in this together.
