Kolkata, Oct 12, 2010 (Calcutta Tube/IBNS): As part of its Durga Puja 2010 celebrations, the city wing of an IT multinational organised a novel initiative for its workers to decorate their workplaces with theme-based concepts.
For the ‘Daker Shaaj – Bring the Mandap to Your Workplace’ contest, every Kolkata campus of Cognizant dons a festive look as the work areas are decorated based on innovative themes.
According to company execs, the employees collected contributions from their peers, brainstormed over the central theme for the event and created “absolutely awe-inspiring traditional ambience” in their offices.
The company’s employees scoured the city during the weekends to obtain material required to decorate their work areas based on the theme and then took turns to realise their ideas.
“At Cognizant, such activities not only make the workplace more fun and enjoyable by bringing in the celebratory verve of festivals, but also help build high-performance teams, hone the artistic skills of associates, help them bond with their peers, and work more closely and seamlessly as a team” said Subho Samanta, Vice-President and Head of Kolkata Operations, Cognizant.
