Taction Software LLC recently marked a Friday as #NameYourPC Day, primarily an internal bustle focusing on engaging the members to come up with a name for their PC. NAME YOUR PC DAY, the exercise focused on exploring the creative side of a typical white collar professional who spend many hours in front of his PC, or Laptop to think OUT OF THE BOX and comes up with an interesting name for a mundane object that still remains with a boring nomenclature such as System, PC, and MacBook.
The members were asked to post the pictures of the name written on a sticky note stuck over their PC’s. The event was an instant success and found a huge response. Interesting names cropped up from all quarters and soon Yammer, the internal Social Media platform, was full of clever and witty names.
The event was a part of the series of activities planned by the HCM Team for its members to think creatively and encourage them to express themselves freely. #NameYourPC event was much appreciated by all the stakeholders and spilled into personal space and saw the members going home and naming their own home PCs.
Creative Expression found a new venue and the lifeless electronic object was ALIVE & KICKING. Thanks to Tacteam for their enthusiastic participation.
