Workjoys, the world’s first virtual team building software was launched to help Singapore companies and their employees cope with the emotional impact of Covid-19. Workjoys help teams and individuals build bonds with each other by playing simple and fun team-bonding games. By playing Workjoys games asynchronously and only during pockets of downtimes, employees do not compromise their productivity, and yet are able to connect better with their colleagues and team over games while working from home.
More than 100 Singapore companies and organisations, and more than 5,000 employees are using WorkJoys. A Human Resource Manager for a technology company based in Singapore shared, “”WorkJoys has quite literally brought joy into my work life, especially during this work-from-home period! It created many opportunities for me and my colleagues to connect over what we have been voted over, and all the topics that were included in the fun quiz. We enjoyed using WorkJoys, and would like to recommend it to other companies looking to add some fun into their daily work.”
On the mission behind Workjoys, Founder Joshua Koh said, “The Covid-19 pandemic has caused business disruption to businesses and requires both personal and organisational adjustments, increasing stress and anxieties among employees. As a result, the bonds between employees, teams and managers are put under more pressure than before. Hence I founded Workjoys as a community project to help employees and managers build better bonds while coping with the pandemic. Workjoys offer companies simple social games for their employees and teams to play with. They can share quirks and trivia about themselves, play positive polling questions, discover more about each other and have a good laugh through the chat functions. What’s more, it’s free!”
Workjoys currently have three social games for any companies and employees. The first game is a Positive Polling game where users get polled with only positive questions about their colleagues and the chosen colleagues will receive notification (and points) and then both users can connect through Workjoys chat and find out who has chosen who and why! The second game is a Trivia game where users are posed quirks about their colleagues and they have to choose the right colleague. If the correct colleague is chosen, they will receive notification and connect through Workjoys chat! The third game is True or False Story Game where each user provides a true and a false story about themselves for the rest of their colleagues to guess. Workjoys is planning to rollout a total of 10 games by September.
