IBM The Great Mind Challenge (TGMC) is an annual nationwide software development competition, created by the Academic Initiative of IBM. The competition currently takes place in India, Israel, China, Ireland and Switzerland.
The Indian BPO industry weathered uncertainties in the FY12 global business environment.
With uncertainties across the globe and fringe benefits taking the hit first, EXL Services- a premier Business Process Solution Company wanted to focus on boosting the morale of its employees by giving them a break from their routine calls and also wanted to retain its talent.
EXL approached QuizWorks to devise a series of interactions to keep the workforce engaged and motivated. Thus, the XLNC quiz was created.
XLNC quiz consisted of two phases- an online event plus an offline event. Centred around general affairs, the online contest served as a pre-event publicity. Live quizzes were held at Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Gurgaon with Regional Winners battling it out for National Finals also.
Initiated in 2012, the annual quiz property is one of the most anticipated events at EXL. Participation has grown at an average rate of 20% on a year on year basis with almost 50 percent of the workforce participating in the event as of 2014.What started off as a Pan India contest is now a Global Event! XLNC quiz is open to employees from US, UK, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Philippines.
