Description

The Microsoft annual kick-off event took place in July 2020 as an all-day virtual event under the name and concept #MicrosoftQuestival. A neologism made up of Quest and Festival. In addition to business updates, the concept consisted of various gaming challenges and a programme with festival character.

The morning started with a business update from the German head Sabine Bendiek and the German leadership team via livestream. Playful elements such as a short mobility session and a game between the management and the junior staff livened up the programme.

For the virtual lunch break, all employees received a package in advance - the #MicrosoftQuestival Box. In addition to snacks and gadgets for the gaming challenge, it included a recipe. This recipe was broadcast during the lunch break via the live stream, so that all employees had the opportunity to prepare the recipe from home.

In the afternoon, everyone went into smaller teams for the Gaming Challenge. In groups of up to eight people, all employees solved riddles in virtual rooms. In addition to fun elements, the riddles were mainly related to the content of the morning, so that it could be internalised in a playful way and exchanged in the smaller teams about the content.
