Thankfully it’s time to kick off those (work) shoes, get rid of the ties and celebrate another successful, yet pretty- exhausting year!

And to help you get started, here are some fun-filled work party ideas inspired by kids’ games but which have been adapted with an adult twist – after all it is kids that have the most fun!

Scavenger hunt

It’s high-energy, disruptive, but oh-so-much fun! Gather up and hide items that teams have to find and whoever finds them all the quickest wins. This game is great to play both inside and outside the office, depending on how elaborate you want it to be!

“Adult-up” the game by listing the items in riddles to make it more competitive and exciting – such as “I’m not a razor but have a blade, I unblunt items, that have a grade” (a sharpener in case you were wondering!) or “adhesive that comes on a roll” …. we’ll leave it up to you to guess what that one is….Set time limits and reward with incentives to get those competitive juices flowing!

What Lie?

If you’ve watched “Would I Lie to You?”, you know exactly what this game is about. But, if you haven’t, here’s how it works: Give everyone one minute to write down two true personal facts and one that isn’t (the lie) – so three statements about themselves in total. Each person gets a turn to read out their statement and the rest of the team votes on which one they think is the lie.

Opposing teams get to ask questions to check the “authenticity” of the statement, so players will have to be able to ‘lie truthfully’ to keep the opposing team guessing. A good lesson in poker face practice which is good practice for meetings anyway!

Fix me!

This game allows you to brainstorm and potentially fix problems that are bothering co-workers. Get everyone to anonymously write down a pressing issue or question that’s weighing them down on a piece of paper and throw them into a large container. Everyone randomly grabs a piece of paper, reads the problem, and the entire team brainstorms for solutions. Fun but proactive at the same time.

 

With these games, your end-of-year party is sure to leave everyone buzzing, ending the year off on a high note

Our company moved into the Worq building in June 2020. Up until now the fascination of our clients and visitors is always expressed at the décor of the building and the refreshing difference that it has to a ‘normal’ office working space. It is such a pleasure to be around such great minds and creative individuals. Deron and Eric are also the friendliest people around and are always willing to help in any way that they can. Being a part of the Worq community is great

With The Worq Shoppe going digital soon all I can say is that now not even the sky is the limit for the potential of how far and wide our products can reach. The Worq Shoppe is an extension of my colourful nature, my love for crafts, and my ethos of good vibes. With the guidance and never-ending support from my daughter, Deron, and the Worq team I can’t help but love every day I walk into The Worq Shoppe to get rocking!

The space is amazing, it’s easily manageable, I can come and go as I want, and manage my business on my own terms. I would recommend that small businesses looking for a space to rent, comes to take a tour of the Worq building
