Managers: Test Your Employee's Knowledge With These Team Meeting Games

Team meetings are an important part of any organization, whether it’s a small startup or a large corporation. However, if you don’t keep your team members engaged, they will grow uninterested in the meetings’ value and are more likely to miss them. They then lose out on valuable time where workers can bond while collaborating on important matters concerning the development of your company. To help make team meetings more engaging and valuable, try these three suggestions to test your employees’ knowledge. You might be surprised at what you and your employees learn!


How to Run an Effective Quiz

You can test your employee’s knowledge by quizzing them on company procedures, new regulations, best practices, and industry news. Here are a few tips on how to run an effective quiz:

  1. Make sure the questions are relevant to what your employees should know.

  2. Avoid trick questions- this will only frustrate employees and won’t give you an accurate assessment of their knowledge.

  3. Give employees a chance to ask questions before moving on – this gives you the opportunity to gauge their understanding about the subject. A good way to implement this is adding a Q&A question to your quiz.

  4. Don’t make the quiz too long- you want to keep employees engaged, not overwhelm them.

  5. Be sure to review the answers with the team afterwards so everyone can learn from any mistakes that were made.

  6. Start with a fun question!

  7. Make it a quiz with prizes.
