It's never all work and no play at Microsoft India Development Center. Our open and fun work environment provides opportunities for some great recreational facilities, social interest clubs and social service activities which promote sharing and collaboration.
Since inception, Microsoft and its employees have been giving back to the community. Microsoft’s first organized act of philanthropy started with the United Way Giving Campaign in 1983. Bill Gates started with the United Way because of his long-standing family history of commitment to the United Way of King County. MSIDC has embraced this great corporate tradition of Giving since the year 2000. The annual Giving Campaign is a dedicated time to raise awareness and generate contributions for non-profit organizations. Microsoft matches employee contributions up to a fixed amount per employee and distributes the amounts to all recipient organizations. During Community Week, employees volunteer their time towards social service activities, such as teaching basic computer skills to children from less privileged schools, painting an old age home and organizing blood donation drives.
Apart from the annual Giving Campaign, MSIDC employees have also participated in various other efforts, eg the Tsunami reconstruction program, organizing blood donation camps for thalassemia patients and maxilla facial corrective surgery camps for children with cleft palate problems.
Our employees have also formed various groups which bring together people with similar interests. Several employees are members of the Hyderabad Toastmasters Club and regularly organize events that teach public speaking and communication skills. Women of IDC All is a group of women at MSIDC who want to connect, share experiences and learn from each other.
XpressionZ is an amateur theatre club on campus. The Hyderabad Music Club is open to anyone with an interest in music—either as a passive listener or an active participant. The Hyderabad Dance Club has an active group of members who perform at various company events. Sporting associations such as Cricket Hungama @ Campus and Soccer Mania @ Campus organize cross campus annual tournaments every year.
Working with bright minds and contributing for the social causes from your office space-- this is terrific and doubles the joy of being at Microsoft.
