Do you participate in many social activities with your fellow workers?

7 Answer Examples | Learn how to answer this question from professional recruiters

How to Answer

Often time, engaged and happy employees are the ones who will participate in social and extra-curricular activities. Talk to the interviewer about the ways you participate in social activities with your co-workers. Keep your answer professional as you do not want to come across as someone who becomes involved in workplace drama, or who parties with your co-workers all the time. Also, avoid any answers related to co-worker romantic relationships.

Do you participate in many social activities with your fellow workers?
Admin

"Our office is small, and we do not have many inter-office activities as most people have families to get home to after work. I would like to join an organization that has some sense of team-building, however. I would like to have a summer cookout or maybe even a Christmas party to attend! Could you tell me about the staff events you hold here?"

Basic

"I try to participate in our company's extracurricular activities as often as possible. We will often do a quarterly get-together and go bowling, out for drinks, or throw together a baseball game with the kids and spouses. It's a lot of fun and always boosts morale in the office as well."

Manager

"My team seem to enjoy it when I show up to events and happenings that are important to them in their personal life. As a manager, I have attended weddings of team members, a couple of kids birthday parties, and will buy a round of drinks for them at the pub after work now and then. A healthy balance of business and personal is important."

Marketing

"Our marketing group is full of highly social individuals. We will go out for a couple of rounds of cocktails most Fridays to unwind from our week and go over some of our biggest wins. It's a lot of fun to bond with my colleagues on a personal level as well; however, I am sure to remain professional and respect the boundaries of our relationship."

Retail

"My current team likes to go out and party on weekends. Although that is not my style, I will go now and then for an hour or so to catch up with my colleagues and say hello. I prefer company led events like holiday parties, for instance."

Sales

"As a territory sales manager, I travel a lot. This situation does not give me the opportunity to get out with my friends very often; let alone - my colleagues. I would like to have more opportunities to get to know my team better. Could you share with me how your team creates bonds outside of the workplace?"

Teacher

"We teachers are a social bunch! I would say that, aside from teacher conferences and workshops, I go out for drinks with the faculty about once a month. We like to go to karaoke and blow off a bit of steam from the week. It's good, clean fun."
