The holiday season is officially here. And with it comes another merry gathering: The office holiday celebrations.
If you’re currently organizing one, why not spice it up with a quiz?
Everybody loves a little competition, especially in the corporate environment. Quizzes are also nice opportunities to reward your employees with some prizes.
The best thing? Even remote people who can’t attend the party in person can join in, and be included in the fun.
We’ve put together these three amazingly engaging quizzes you can set up in Slido and use at your holiday party. Each has a different objective, so pick one that best suits your goals:
- Holiday trivia quiz
Engage your employees with a fun quiz.
- Yearly recap quiz
Present your yearly company numbers in a more gripping way.
- Company knowledge quiz
Find out how well your teammates know your company.
Whichever of these quizzes you decide to go for, feel free to copy and paste it or adjust it however you see fit.
1. Holiday trivia quiz
The end-of-year holiday party is a great chance for employees to have unbridled fun in the company environment. So why not spark up your event with even more fun?
This trivia quiz is nothing but laughs and competition. Don’t forget to get a sweet prize ready for the winner!
In case more people get the same number of correct answers, the ‘Timer’ feature in Slido will pick out the fastest one.
You can find this quiz in our Slido templates library and copy it to your event in two clicks. Just go to your Slido account, create a new event or enter your existing one, click the ‘Live polls’ tab, and navigate to ‘Browse templates’.

2. Yearly recap quiz
‘Tis the season to round up the year. Why not try a different way to summarize the key numbers and company stats?
Letting your employees guess how well your company did in 2019 is much more fun than a top-down recap from the stage. Besides, you can perk up your quiz with fun stats related to your company culture and team activities.
Every year, we at Slido run an all-hands meeting before we officially kick off the party.
Here are some quiz questions from our own kitchen for your inspiration.

3. Company knowledge quiz
The holiday season is a great time for a company pulse check. Learn about how well your employees understand your company, its values, and organizational structure, in a more amusing way than a standard email survey – a quiz!
This quiz provides heaps of valuable data for the internal comms team. For example, with the ‘Hardest question’ feature in Slido Quizzes, you can see which questions got the smallest percentage of correct answers and therefore were the most difficult for the participants to answer.
This helps you to identify where there’s room for improvement in the company communications, and take action. As a little tip, you can re-run this quiz the following year to check for progress.
Take inspiration from these questions and adjust them as you see fit.
