ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming’s new purpose built HQ on the Isle of Man, adjacent to its existing office, officially opened on 31 July 2017.
Construction began on the new office in April 2015, and just over two years later the company’s building, named Sixty Two, has opened. The 5-storey office houses over 100 employees, with a unique sky bridge joining the new and existing building, creating a campus for the company. All guests will be welcomed in the beautiful reception area that celebrates Microgaming’s product (with a demo wall to showcase games and awards), its employees (with a legends wall honouring the longest-serving members of the team) and its home (with a periscope showing a 360-degree view of Douglas, Isle of Man).
Designed with employees front of mind, the office environment fosters a culture of collaboration and communication. There are 16 meeting rooms, hot desks, and phone booths, as well as plenty of break-out areas on every floor. The entire fourth floor of the building is a communal area, featuring a canteen and coffee shop (with an exclusive Microgaming coffee blend!) to keep employees fuelled, as well as a darts board, pool tables, a poker table, table tennis table and a library for staff to take time out, away from their desks. A high emphasis has been placed on staff wellbeing with the provision of an in-house gym, a treatment room and a spacious studio to host weekly fitness classes, in addition to a rooftop garden offering stunning views of the island.
