With the blurring of the boundaries between our work & home lives, in which our homes became (and in many cases, at least some of the time, continue to be) our workplaces, the on-going challenge to build connection and a sense of belonging across our already distributed workforces has become… even more challenging!
We always need to remember that employee needs are fundamentally ‘human’ needs. Our human need for the sense of belonging delivered by family, friendship & community is well-documented and considered essential for us to thrive. Once our physiological needs for food/shelter/safety are met, we humans are wired to want connection.
We Are Family
With this in mind, we have borrowed the concept of ‘Family’ to represent the solution, and let it inspire us to create a new collection of content items to help you & your workforce strengthen & build on the sense of community at your organization. Choose from the following engaging range of items to explore, learn and have fun, on the way to enjoying the positive benefits that flow from greater connection, wherever your employees are.

Why So Many Quizzes?
You may notice we have presented a truly bumper crop of quizzes above! Why do we create so many? Because in our experience a quiz format is a powerful route to achieve optimal engagement.
Whether the goal is to provide personal/professional development insights, generate company pride, embed values/correct procedures, or purely to inject some all-important fun & deliver a few minutes of lighten-up time, building a quiz for it is always a first choice. Think of a topic, we have probably created a quiz for it… and if we haven’t yet, please ask!
And we invite you to explore all of our quizzes (and much more) in our rich content marketplace of easy-to-customize pre-made content 24/7 here.
