Taps on the shoulder are now scheduled Slack messages. Brainstorming sessions are asynchronous on shared Google Docs. Team bonding activities are limited by 40 minute Zoom meetings. The age of hybrid work has created an entirely new corporate culture that has taken us all some time to get used to and that has come with a disconnect with how our coworkers feel.
With the rise of this new corporate culture, we’ve created relatable hybrid work icebreaker questions for your team that will bring some laughter to your next virtual meeting or presentation. Let’s face it – we could all use some genuine and authentic humor after back-to-back calls. In fact, organizations that incorporate humor into their company culture report 19% higher shareholder returns than their competitors! Additionally, it is a subtle way to better get to know your employees, their preferences and personalities, and work habits.
