Virtual Bingo with Living Digital - Transcript

Looking for ways to engage your team virtually? The Living Digital team has got you covered!

We tried our own version of BINGO, remote working special edition, of course, during our latest

meeting. Let’s see how it went down.

#TogetherGC

Remote working COVID-19 edition BINGO

So, seen or heard a colleague’s pet during a video call. Yeah! Everyone!

Talked for a few minutes without realizing you were on mute. I’m guilty!

I was going to say, Raana has!

Had to call IT for computer issues. Definitely!

This is a good one: Pretended to have ‘video issues’ because of a bad hair day. Hm (cricket

sound) of course not!

And there you have it! Not only was it a nice break, but it felt especially great to engage and

have some virtual fun together. If you’d like to try out our BINGO at your next team meeting, you

can download it by heading to www.canada.ca/livingdigital. Don’t forget to share your

experience with us by using #LivingDigitalBINGO in the comments below!

Remote working COVID-19 edition Bingo

  • Saw or heard a colleagues’ pet during a video call
  • Talked for a few minutes without realizing you were on mute
  • Had to call IT for computer issues
  • Pretended to have ‘video issues’ because of a bad hair day
  • Missed what your colleague was saying because you were too focused on what was behind them
  • Sent a GIF to your colleagues
  • Bribed your kids with candy so they would leave you alone
  • Said “can you hear me” during a meeting
  • Told your colleagues about the weather
  • Accidentally disrupted a meeting by forgetting to put yourself on mute
  • Mixed up your routine by working outside

  • Heard dishes being washed in the background
  • Were late to a meeting on account of technical difficulties

Let’s face it, moving from in-person to online meetings has its challenges. Remote working means we don’t get to have casual run-ins with our colleagues in our shared spaces at the office, and this means less opportunities to exchange dad jokes, and everyday “OMG” moments. However, as we navigate the online environment, we’ve all had our fair share of relatable experiences, and we still want to be able to share a laugh over them! So, we put these down in the form of a bingo card and played it at our team meeting. Check out how it went down for us in our video, and download the fillable PDF we made to try it out with your team!

The verdict:

Overall, bingo was a success. Our team had a good time laughing and sharing memories of funny moments we’ve had since working from home. The fillable PDF is super easy to use. One thing to note, however: your colleagues will likely not hesitate to call you out on the stuff you’re guilty for!

We give this activity a: 10/10

Round up your team, download the fillable PDF and take turns sharing your responses on which member of your team you think would best fit each of the 10 statements your team has chosen to play with. Get ready for laughs and an all-around good time, as you learn what your colleagues really think of you.

Our Verdict: 

It’s safe to say our team definitely enjoyed a laugh (or ten) as we participated in this game! It was an easy way  to engage  with everyone and learn more about each other! It’s little activities like this that make us feel connected even when we’re apart! 

We give this activity a: 9.5/10 (-.5 because I’m only slightly offended that my colleagues think I’d be late to my own wedding…they know me a little too well)
