Microgaming celebrates its Isle of Man HQ's first year by burying a time capsule
Microgaming CEO John Coleman celebrated the landmark date alongside staff at the software giant’s Isle of Man campus on Wednesday 1 August, by placing a time capsule underneath the building’s entrance.
The capsule will be opened 30 years from now, containing unique mementos curated from suggestions by staff to celebrate significant milestones for the company. Vacuum sealed, metal capsule included a series of photographs exhibiting company highlights, such as staff volunteer days, awards and the first group photo taken at the new offices when the building opened in July 2017.
John Coleman, Microgaming CEO, commented: “It is incredibly important for us to mark our first year at Sixty Two. This time capsule captures a snapshot of our campus, our staff and the amazing culture we have fostered here on the Isle of Man for future generations to look back on. Most importantly, this moment serves as a reminder to our future selves of our unique heritage and the people who have made this building more than just a place to work – it is truly a campus to be proud of."
The capsule also includes a PlayItForward volunteer’s shirt to commemorate the company’s CSR initiative, as well as numerous local and international articles from the past year, including Sixty Two being named in a list of “The 10 Coolest offices of 2017” which was published on The Telegraph.
The second office on the island allows for the rapid expansion of Microgaming and Derivco Isle of Man, keeping the staff in mind. The 5-storey office now holds over 300 employees, growing from 231 since it opened in 2017.
