And that’s where we come in. Our knowledgeable and game-changing team will be happy to advise you and introduce you to our Christmas offerings.
Want to know how to organize the perfect virtual Christmas party? We’ve put together some tips, tricks and advice to make your virtual Christmas party a complete success!
Icebreakers are important
The end-of-year virtual Christmas party is sometimes the only opportunity for employees from different departments, branch offices, field workers or home workers to get together and catch up with their colleagues. While this is a cause for joy for many, it can be awkward for some employees to see someone they don’t speak to often. Make sure you have a few fun icebreakers on hand to jumpstart the conversation and avoid awkward pauses and lulls in the conversation.
The type of icebreakers you choose will depend on how many resources you have available, how many people you’re hosting, and how long you expect staff to have to wait before the actual festivities begin.
Here are a few suggestions from us:
Blast from the Past
This challenge must be organized by one person. All participants send a childhood photo of themselves in advance. All the pictures are placed on a digital pinboard and then people guess who is in which photo. This can lead to an exchange about childhood memories, common hobbies as a child or experiences during a certain time.
As you can see, each Icebreaker yields the potential for further conversation. You learn more about your teamies and find commonalities you didn’t know about before, interesting hobbies or biographies. And just like that, you’re a little closer as a team and the cohesion is strengthened.
Grab That Object
The challenge is to find an object with a certain property. Something made of metal, for example, an object in a certain color or size. All participants find their object, show it to the team – and maybe there is even a story to tell about one or the other object?
Of course, there are many other Icebreakers that are suitable for teams of different sizes.
Entertaining team building events for your virtual Christmas party
After the icebreakers are taken care of, it’s time to think about the “main event” of your virtual Christmas party – deciding which team building event you will include. We have a variety of virtual events you can book:
Quizmas Live – team challenge for virtual Christmas party
The response to our virtual events was so positive that we now also offer virtual Christmas parties, including Quizmas live. All participants are divided into two teams by lot. Then it’s time to get started: Recognize Christmas carols, discover your artistic streak in the Monday Painter or buzz with quick reactions in the Christmas quiz – a fun atmosphere is guaranteed.
Best of all, your employees will get to know each other better and even learn some personal fun facts, such as: What was the most embarrassing gift you ever received from your colleagues? – The Challenge combines a sense of community with excitement and humor.
The event lasts about 60-70 minutes, and the individual tasks require different skills so that each participant can play to their strengths. Our game master accompanies the challenge and ensures that even the biggest Christmas grump will crack a smile.
Quizmas live does not require any third-party software to be installed on the company notebook or smartphone. A good internet connection, headphones and a webcam are all that’s needed.
