However, Scavify is reinventing how the workplace scavenger hunt is done, and making the process easier on everyone involved. The Scavify app streamlines the end-to-end process of planning and deploying a workplace scavenger hunt while also making it more interactive for the teams involved.

Since the planning and execution is now so easy, the only hard part is in coming up with ideas for employee tasks! However, the list below will help you build a solid list of items for your hunt!

It can also be fun to create items that specifically align with your company’s mission and culture - keep this in mind as you read through the list!

Note: the format of the task is identified in parentheticals prior to each item, e.g., Q&A for trivia items, “PHOTO” for photo, “VIDEO” for video, etc.
