Work and fun


Annual rafting or keeping pace with marathons, trekking trips to the majestic Himalayan foothills; or humane gestures like blood donation camps; celebrating cultural festivals like Diwali, Holi, Uggadi or fashion shows with a difference – life inside IBM Research – India has many good things that keep IBM India Researchers and their families buzzing with activities. At IBM Research – India, researchers enjoy their innovation pursuit to the core as they also unwind themselves in playing carrom, table-tennis (ping pong), chess, watching movies, having fun at month-end parties and birthday bashes, winning awards, pumping iron at the modern gym or relishing free gourmet food at the cafeteria.

What makes the lab different is the way most beautiful minds get huddled together for something what money can’t buy - ample freedom to explore IT and engage in endless innovations, for the business, society and the world. The “innovation culture” at the lab offers the right ambience and freedom for researchers to continually push the boundaries of what is possible. Take a look at the photo-gallery below, a testimony to how research is blended with fun at the IBM Research – India. For sure, images speak better than words.
