Office Party Ideas: Play Co-Worker Trivia

office-party-ideasA few days before your office party, ask each person one to two questions (mix up the questions among the group so everyone gets asked something different) then make a trivia game to play at your office party.

The trivia questions could be things like "Who’s first job was ...?". It’s a good way for everyone to get to know each other better while having a little fun.  Some ideas for questions are:

What was your first job?

What’s the furthest place travelled?

What’s your favourite song?

On a day off work, you’re most likely to be found where or doing what?

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

What’s your dream vacation?

What was your favourite TV show as a child?

Do you have an odd talent?

If you could take one office supply with you to a deserted island, what would you choose?

If you could choose one superhero power, what would you choose?

If you were an animal, what would you be?

If you could choose any zoo animal as a pet, what would you choose?

For those people who aren’t available to answer questions ahead of time, you could look up answers to questions like how many years have they been with the company.

Office Party Ideas: Birthday Party

Looking for some new and different office party ideas to celebrate office birthdays, retirements or promotions?  Here are a few new ideas for celebrating these special occasions. 

Share Little-Known Facts about the Guest of Honor

Read some silly little-known facts about him/her during their celebration. A few days before the birthday celebration, ask him/her a few questions to put together your little-known facts to read out loud while everyone enjoys their cake.  Some questions you could ask include:
  • What was your first job?
  • What’s the furthest place you'’ve travelled?
  • What’s your favourite song?
  • On a day off work, you’re most likely to be found where or doing what?
  • When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
  • What’s your dream vacation?
  • What was your favourite TV show as a child?
  • Do you have an odd talent?
  • If you could take one office supply with you to a deserted island, what would you choose?
  • If you could choose one superhero power, what would you choose?
  • If you were an animal, what would you be?
  • If you could choose any zoo animal as a pet, what would you choose?

Be creative, but not too personal.

Office Birthday: Share a Fun Limerick

Do you have a creative member in your team that could write a fun limerick about the special person of the day?  This would be something humorous to read out loud during the meeting.

As an example:

Congrats Jack, it’s your big day
Too bad we can’t offer more pay
Today don’t work late
You need to celebrate
So party in your own special way!

Office Birthday Party: Create a Personalized Card

Try making your own card personalized with his/her name down the front & use each letter of his/her name to say something about them.  For example:

J oker
A lways smiling
C razy for Coffee
K ind

When an office birthday or other celebration arrives, do you pass around a card for everyone to sign for the special guy/gal?  Most people write the same message “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”.  Why not try something different by asking each person to write something they like or appreciate about the special guy/gal?  It’s a great way to fill a card with compliments and makes a great keepsake!

Happy Planning!
