The HR trivia game is a low-key, no-stakes, fun event with multiple-choice questions. If you aren’t sure of the correct answer, just make a guess! You can use your real name or sign in as anonymous if you want your identity to be secret.

We will use Kahoot! to play, so you will need access to the Internet for the Zoom meeting and a smartphone or tablet to submit your answers. You may download the free Kahoot! app or go to from your smartphone or tablet to play along. We will play four rounds with five questions per round. Players earn points based on the correct answer and speed; the first person with the correct answer gets the most points, and so on. Even if you are the last person to answer, you still earn points for the correct answer, but there is a time limit to submit answers. Wrong answers do not earn any points. We will tally the results at the end of the last round and reward our top five players with prizes!
